Apple Mac silently new: 10 generations on Air, mini storage doubled

On March 18th, Apple quietly launched two new Mac series products tonight: MacBook Air and Mac mini.

For the MacBook Air, this update is the latest tenth-generation Intel Core processor. Currently known are the dual-core Core i3 at 1.1GHz, the maximum core frequency is 3.2GHz; and the quad-core Core i5 at 1.1GHz, the largest Turbo frequency 3.5GHz. It is expected that there may be a higher Core i7 processor version. The GPU part uses an integrated Iris Plus nuclear display. The basic configuration is 8GB LPDDR4X memory with a frequency of 3733MHz. The Core i3 version comes standard with a 256GB SSD and the Core i5 version standard. With a 512GB SSD, it should all support expansion to a maximum of 2TB.

The 2020 MacBook Air uses the same scissors-type keyboard as the 16-inch MacBook Pro, replacing the butterfly keyboard that has been criticized by users. Other appearances and interfaces have not changed.

The Mac mini part is relatively simple. This time, Apple has not brought any substantial performance updates to the Mac mini. It is still Intel's eighth-generation Core processor. Just upgrade the storage and keep the price unchanged, double the capacity of the original two basic configuration solid state drives. Now the initial core capacity of the quad core Core i3 at 6299 yuan (USD $900) is 256GB. The initial solid-state drive capacity of the Core i5 is 512GB.

With only a storage upgrade, the 2020 Mac mini can now be ordered directly. The 2020 MacBook Air models are priced at 7999 yuan (USD $1143) and 9999 yuan (USD $1428) , respectively, and cannot be ordered for the time being.
