The M2 MacBook Air, with a 15-inch retina display screen, 256GB of internal storage, and 8GB of unified RAM is a bit of a powerhouse thanks to that impressive Apple Silicon M2 chip. It helps that all-day battery life and 500 nits peak brightness make it excellent to take with you on the go.

The M2 MacBook Air is the ultimate productivity device thanks to good specs, a great keyboard, and fantastic battery life. Given there is no M3 model of the MacBook Air, this is the best processor you will find in an Air model and it shows in its performance. 

Though the smaller 8GB of RAM might seem a little low in comparison to its competitors, it is specifically designed for Apple machines, making it much more efficient with less raw power than your average Windows laptop. If you’re worried the RAM will hold you back, you could always upgrade to the 16GB model, which is also $300 off at Best Buy and comes with double the storage. If you order now, you can get it shipped by as early as next week. 

In our 15-inch M2 MacBook Air review, we say it “might just be the perfect MacBook” and, at this price, it becomes even better.

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.
