As was the case in previous years, Apple has worked tirelessly to release a new line of MacBook laptops kitted with sleek new designs and plenty of improvements on previous generations.
Whether you’re a serious business professional in need of a high-performance machine or a frequent traveler in need of a highly-portable laptop, Apple is sure to have a laptop that effectively meets your needs. Here are the best MacBooks of 2020, according to your personal requirements.
MacBook Pro (13-Inch) – Power And Portability, Combined
Are you a frequent business traveler in need of a highly-capable laptop? If so, then look no further than the MacBook Pro 13-inch. This laptop is equipped with a 10th Gen Intel Core i5 processor, along with your choice of either 16GB or 32GB RAM. With these specifications, the 13-inch MacBook Pro is powerful enough for you to do some extensive video editing and even some light gaming.
In addition, its lightweight of 3.1 pounds and more than 10 hours of battery life make this model ideal for business professionals who are trying to get some work done while on a flight during their next business trip. What’s also really important to note is that MacBook Pro customers are spoiled for choice; you can choose to equip your laptop with anywhere between 256 GB and 4 TB of storage.
MacBook Air – Mobile And Affordable
When it comes to getting great value for money, the MacBook Air makes a stellar choice. While it may be the cheapest MacBook of them all, the Air still includes a sufficient quantity of features to make a convincing sales pitch. Probably its greatest selling point is its portability: this 13-inch laptop weighs a mere 2.8 pounds and is just 0.6 inches thick, making it easy to slip into a variety of backpacks and satchels.
While it may only have 8GB of RAM (this can be upgraded to 16GB), this laptop does have an array of other features that compensates for its relatively low performance. Such features include a gorgeous 2560 x 1600 px edge-to-edge Retina display, a nine and a half hour battery life, 256 GB of storage, and two Thunderbolt 3 ports for lightning-quick connectivity.
MacBook Pro (16-Inch) – For The Serious Computer Whiz
If you’re looking for a laptop that will satisfy all of your business, gaming, and even programming needs, look no further. With its 9th Generation Intel Core i9 processor and up to 64GB of RAM, few laptops can outperform this incredible specimen.
This laptop has a truly beautiful 16-inch display, with an unbeatable resolution of 3072 x 1920 pxs and an AMD Radeon Pro Graphics Processing Unit. What’s more, is that Apple’s development team has worked tirelessly to eliminate many of the previous issues that hampered this model’s performance. This includes replacing the problem-riddled butterfly keyboard with the radically-improved Magic keyboard and including a powerful six-speaker audio system.
So long as you’re willing to pay a heavy price and deal with a heavy laptop (it weighs 4.3 pounds), the 16-Inch MacBook Pro will blow your mind with its extensive capabilities.
The Bottom Line
While Apple is infamous for bringing out an endless string of new updates each year, you can rest assured as no matter which laptop you buy, you will be receiving a reliable machine that is sure to serve you well for years. Whether you’re in need of a laptop that’s lightweight and portable, or require a workhorse that will keep up with all your programming and gaming needs, you’re sure to find a MacBook that meets your needs.
