Apple MacBook Air M2 (2022) Review


It's expensive, but the Apple MacBook Air M2 (2022) is a wonderful machine that looks great, performs exceptionally and lasts a long time.

Fantastic performance ; Sleek, updated design ; Excellent keyboard and trackpad ; Long battery life

Expensive starting price and upgrades ; More colours would have been nice ; The M1 version remains an excellent buy for less

Apple MacBook Air (M2, 2022) review: a notch above the competition


The all-new Air, complete with M2 processor, is a total triumph. Here's why it's the best Mac laptop for most people

Superb battery life ; Silent operation thanks to no fans ; Apple M2 is a real powerhouse when needed ; Webcam finally gets upgrade to 1080p resolution ; Largest screen in the Air series to date – it looks great

Notch disrupts screen ; Pricier than previous Air ; Runs hotter than MacBook Pro M2 ; MagSafe not USB-C charging, cable isn't averse to tangles

The all-new MacBook Air with M2 silicon is a revelation: redesigned, reinvigorated, revolutionary. It's super powerful, has excellent battery life, and aside from some heat due to no fan cooling and the inclusion of a notch on that new 13.6-inch...

Apple MacBook Air (M2, 2022) review


New look, new price

Great new design ; Very good performance ; Long battery life ; Larger screen

Much more expensive than previous model ; New colors are a bit tame ; Previous model is much better value

The MacBook Air (M2, 2022) is Apple’s follow-up to the best laptop it ever made, and while it comes close, it doesn’t quite beat the previous model. It’s got a fantastic design, bigger screen and incredibly long battery life, but also a much higher...

Fabulous design ; Fantastic bright and crisp display ; Super slim and light ; Excellent performance from M2 processor ; Lovely to use ; Brilliant keyboard ; Fanless

For the everyday user, the MacBook Air (M2, 2022) is a superb machine with a fabulous lightweight design, excellent and fluid performance and very, very little (basically nothing) to complain about. If you are after an all-rounder laptop, you are...

M2 Apple MacBook Air (2022) review: Better, faster, pricier


Not the game-changer its predecessor was and a bit too expensive, but still a great ultraportable laptop

Gorgeous looks ; Great battery life ; Superb performance

No £999 base model ; 256GB SSD is (reportedly) slow

That leaves a slightly sour taste in the mouth, but does it do enough to undermine the M2 MacBook Air’s overall appeal? If Apple hadn’t raised the price of the base model by £250 I’d be minded to dismiss it with a wave of the hand. Alas, the price hike...

MacBook Air (M2) review: It’s what Apple has always wanted


The M2 MacBook Air is the laptop Apple has always wanted to make -- and in most cases, it's a rousing success.

Incredibly thin Upgraded webcam and speakers Shockingly good performance Battery life stomps the competition Screen and keyboard are world-class

Worryingly hot internal temperatures Still only supports one monitor

“The M2 MacBook Air balances size and performance in a way no other laptop can.”

Apple MacBook Air (2022, M2) Review


Stunning, slim design ; Larger, more vibrant 13.6-inch display ; Multiple color options ; M2 chip delivers excellent performance

Shorter battery life than 2020 M1 MacBook Air ; Camera notch encroaches on display panel ; Limited to two USB-C/Thunderbolt 4 ports (though mitigated, in part, by MagSafe connector)

The 2022 version of Apple's MacBook Air gets a fresh look and the more powerful M2 processor, making it Apple’s best ultraportable laptop yet.
