As people participate more and more in hybrid work models where they are working from different places, they have started preferring laptops over desktops because of their portability. All this is why, in this piece, we will be enlisting and elaborating upon the most popular laptops available for you to buy this year.
Apple Macbook Air M1 2020
No listing of popular consumer electronics devices is complete without the mention of an Apple product. For the purposes of this article, we would be remiss if we completed a list of the most popular laptops without even mentioning a Macbook. So here it goes. Apple is known for the manufacturing of top-notch products and the Apple Macbook Air M1 2020 sure does not disappoint. Although it does not have specs as impressive as those of its higher-end version – the Apple Macbook Pro, we believe it still delivers a better bang for the buck as it costs much lower than the Pro version. While the Apple Macbook Air M1 2020 costs 999$, the price of the Pro version rockets well above a grand.
Even though it is not as expensive as some other laptops, the Apple Macbook Air M1 2020 still packs a lot in it which is why it has made it to the top of our list of most popular laptops. Firstly, as the name suggests, it features an M1 processor. This processor not only gives the laptop an opportunity to perform very well but also gives it an extra-long battery life of as long as 18 hours. Provided you have good internet such as Xfinity internet, you can run all online as well as offline apps very smoothly and at the same time. When it comes to the display, it features an LED-backlit Retina display of size as large as 13.3 inches in diagonal length.
When it comes to storage, it boasts a Solid State Drive (SSD) of 256 GB SSD. By paying an extra price, you can ask Apple to fit in a bigger drive of 2 TBs, 1 TB, or 512 GBs.

Along with being much more affordable than the other laptops mentioned above, this laptop packs a lot inside it.
