The Apple MacBook Air with an M2 CPU is officially on sale.


The new M2 processor, which powers Apple's recently released MacBook Air and MacBook Pro notebooks, was unveiled last month. While the MacBook Pro is on sale, the comparably less expensive Air variant has just recently gone on sale.

Pre-orders for the new Apple MacBook Air with the M2 chipset have been available for a few days, and now the laptop officially goes on sale in a number of locations..

The 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models from the previous year's lineup seem quite similar to the new Apple MacBook Air, which maintains the fanless design. The laptop sports a new 13.6-inch display with up to 500 nits of brightness in place of the standard 13.3-inch display. According to reports, the screen is 25% brighter than its predecessor and supports 1 billion different colours.

Apple states that Final Cut Pro performs roughly 40% faster than on the M1 Air and Photoshop performs up to 20% faster thanks to the new M2 chip. On the left side, there are two Thunderbolt ports and a headphone socket that can accommodate high-impedance headphones.

It also has four speakers, three microphones, and an upgraded 1080p camera. Dolby Atmos spatial audio is also supported, according to Apple. A full row of function keys, Touch ID, and a Force Touch trackpad are now available on the Magic Keyboard. Additionally, it now supports charging with the MagSafe connector.

The laptop weights 2.7 pounds and is only 11.3 millimetres thick (1.2 kilograms). According to the manufacturer, the battery life can last up to 18 hours of video playback and can be charged 50% in 30 minutes with an additional 67-watt power adapter.

The base model of the new Apple MacBook Air costs $1,199, while the top-end variant costs $2,499 in total. This makes it slightly more expensive than the MacBook Air with an M1 processor that was introduced a few years back.
