One of the highlights of this laptop is the Magic Keyboard. Apple has brought back the popular scissor-style keys that have more travel time and are comfortable to type on. Even the recently launched MacBook Air has the same keyboard. For those unaware, the Butterfly keys that came in MacBooks until last year failed to get a positive feedback from customers due to several issues.

Some of the other features include stereo speakers, support for Dolby Atmos playback, three-mic array and 3.5mm headphone jack. As for the battery, the laptop is backed by a 58 watt hour battery and is claimed to deliver up to 10 hours of web browsing. You get a 61W USB Type-C power adapter inside the box.
