Coming with a gorgeous 15.3-inch Liquid Retina Display, you can guarantee Netflix and YouTube look great and, with the whole new macOS Sonoma, games will run much better on it too. This is kept very speedy with 8GB of unified RAM and 256GB of SSD storage meaning you can access and alter files in a flash. 

That impressive M2 chip makes it up to 1.4 times faster than the M1 MacBook Air and up to 12 times faster than the intel MacBook Air at day-to-day tasks and lower power consumption gives it up to 18 hours of battery life — more than enough to get you through a full day. An upgrade over the predecessor, it comes with a MagSafe charger, two Thunderbolt Ports, and a headphone jack. As well as this, an efficient backlit Magic Keyboard and Touch ID will give you easy and fast access to your machine. 

In our 5-star review, we praised the great speakers, the M2 chip's performance, and improvements made on the 13-inch model. 

If you’re looking for a nice upgrade or finally want to commit to a MacBook purchase, this is a great deal that likely won't last long.

James is a staff writer and general Jack of all trades at iMore. With news, features, reviews, and guides under his belt, he has always liked Apple for its unique branding and distinctive style. Originally buying a Macbook for music and video production, he has since gone on to join the Apple ecosystem with as many devices as he can fit on his person. 

With a degree in Law and Media and being a little too young to move onto the next step of his law career, James started writing from his bedroom about games, movies, tech, and anything else he could think of. Within months, this turned into a fully-fledged career as a freelance journalist. Before joining iMore, he was a staff writer at Gfinity and saw himself published at sites like TechRadar, NME, and Eurogamer. 

As his extensive portfolio implies, James was predominantly a games journalist before joining iMore and brings with him a unique perspective on Apple itself. When not working, he is trying to catch up with the movies and albums of the year, as well as finally finishing the Yakuza series. If you like Midwest emo music or pretentious indie games that will make you cry, he’ll talk your ear off.
