Here is the brand new 2022 MacBook Air (M2) announced at WWDC. My fav colourway is the midnight option but it also comes in 3 others. This is a HUGE update for the MacBook Air as it gets a brand new design and new M2 internals.

My first impressions of the 2022 MacBook Air with M2. Thinner, lighter, faster & with a better webcam, speakers & 2 new colours - could this become the best laptop in the world!?

The Verge

Apple just announced a fully redesigned MacBook Air with an M2 processor. The display is now larger at 13.6 inches and gets closer to the edge of the lid because the new 1080p camera has been hidden in a notch. It features two thunderbolt ports, a headphone jack, and a MagSafe charging port. The M2 MacBook Air will be available in July 2022, starting at $1,199.


With an Apple M2 chip and a redesigned, slimmer chassis, the new MacBook Air is more than just a simple upgrade. Check out our first impressions.


New colors, more performance, bigger screen, better camera… and a higher price.
