The MacBook Air now also features the Force Touch Trackpad and the Magic Keyboard with a redesigned scissor mechanism, providing 1mm of key travel, and the inverted-"T" arrangement of the arrow keys, resulting in a comfortable yet accurate typing experience. The Touch ID sensor lets you quickly unlock your MacBook Air with just your fingerprint. You can also use Touch ID to make purchases over the web, thanks to Apple Pay. Touch ID works with the Apple T2 chip, providing on-the-fly data encryption for everything stored on the SSD as well as "Hey Siri" functionality. Since the MacBook Air makes it easy to travel with, you'll be using it in a variety of environments with different lighting conditions. The backlit Magic Keyboard has an ambient light sensor so it adjusts to your environment, conserving battery life. Speaking of battery life, the MacBook Air provides up to 11 hours of wireless web browsing and up to 30 days of standby time, thanks to its built-in 49.9 Wh lithium-polymer battery. When it's time to recharge, you can plug in the 30W power adapter into its Thunderbolt 3 (USB Type-C) port. Connect to the internet via Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac) and use Bluetooth 5.0 to connect peripherals and accessories wirelessly.

While you could install any of those programs, they would run poorly on the Apple 13.3" MacBook Air with Retina Display (Early 2020, Gold) BH #APMWTL2LLA, this is a basic work type of laptop.
