Apple has unveiled its latest innovation in the laptop market: the 15-inch MacBook Air with M2 chip.
The new MacBook Air boasts a stunning 15.3-inch Liquid Retina display, a powerful 8-core CPU and 10-core GPU, up to 18 hours of battery life, and a silent, fanless design. It is also the world’s thinnest 15-inch laptop, measuring only 11.5mm thin and weighing just 3.3 pounds.
The new MacBook Air is powered by the M2 chip, the next generation of Apple silicon that delivers even more speed and power efficiency than the M1 chip. The M2 chip enables users to work, play, or create just about anything — anywhere. It also supports advanced features such as Spatial Audio, MagSafe charging, and macOS Ventura.
The new MacBook Air comes in four gorgeous finishes — midnight, starlight, space gray, and silver — each with its own matching MagSafe charging cable. It also features a six-speaker sound system, a 1080p FaceTime HD camera, two Thunderbolt ports, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
The 1080p FaceTime HD camera on MacBook Air is perfect for FaceTime calls and video conferencing. Combined with the processing power of the advanced image signal processor on M2, users will look great on video calls. A three-mic array captures clean audio using advanced beamforming algorithms, so users come through loud and clear on video calls.
The design of the new 15-inch MacBook Air also features a phenomenal new six-speaker sound system with two tweeters and two sets of force-cancelling woofers. The new speakers deliver twice the bass depth for fuller sound, and Spatial Audio with support for Dolby Atmos provides immersive experiences whether listening to music or watching movies.
The new MacBook Air is designed with the environment in mind, now using 100 percent recycled gold plating and tin soldering in multiple printed circuit boards, and 100 percent recycled rare earth elements in all magnets. MacBook Air also features 100 percent recycled cobalt in the MagSafe connector and 90 percent recycled steel in the battery tray.
