The difference between 2019 and 2020 is just the internals and keyboard. Based on experience it will take 1-3 months to refresh the stocks.

called apple, they say resellers won't have the display for macbook air 2020 so soon, so i guess we can only use the 16" mbp as a guage of how the keyboard feels.

And significantly much faster too than previous generation of MacBook Air. For those looking for a compact and lightweight macbook, now is a good time to get the latest MacBook Air.
