I’ve been wanting to go back to a laptop for a long ass time, but I’m been put off by the fact that I absolutely hate Windows and Apple’s laptop keyboards have been pure, unadulterated AIDS since the introduction of the butterfly keyboard in the 2015 MacBook 12”. Well Apple have finally woken up and decided to go back to a scissor switch keyboard on their laptops, starting with the 16” Pro a few months ago.
A week ago, they added the MacBook Air to the list of devices with the new keyboard. I was kinda torn between waiting on the 13” Pro to get the new keyboard vs getting the MacBook Air now, but my recent obsession with learning Python pushed me over the edge and I ordered the 2020 Air with the i5 processor and 512gb storage last night. I figure I will upgrade again before too long when ARM Macs become a reality, and this should be fine until then. It should be here Wednesday. In the meantime I’m already looking at monitors and docks. I’m still undecided on the monitor but I think I’m going to pick up a Caldigit TS3 Plus dock as soon as I sell my iMac. Speaking of that, anyone looking for a 2015 27” iMac? I have one for sale now.
I’ll post a full review in a week or so, let me know if there are any questions you have about the new MacBook Air.
