The new MacBook Air 2020 has everything we've ever wanted in a Mac laptop. The most noticeable updates are the addition of a 10th-gen Intel CPU and the increased storage capacity from 128GB to 256GB. (Apple usually offers just 128GB on its base models). The base model packs a 13.3-inch 2560 x 1600 Retina display, Core i3-1005G1 CPU, 8GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD.

In our MacBook Air 2020 review, we loved the laptop's new Magic Keyboard. The keys feature 1 millimeter of travel, which is improved from the 0.7mm from last year's keys. That makes a huge difference, so you don't feel like you're slamming your digits against metal. 

For everyday tasks, the Core i3 CPU should suffice. In our tests, we split our screen with a dozen Safari tabs and a 1080p YouTube video with no slowdowns or stutter. We wish it were a bit faster for the price, but for now — this is the best MacBook for most people. 

It's likely we won't see a better MacBook Air 2020 deal till Amazon Prime Day, so get this MacBook Air deal while you can.
