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...

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.

Apple MacBook Air M2 (2022) review: all-new Air


There's a new look for the most popular laptop on the market.

Thinner, lighter design ; Much-improved screen ; Much-improved webcam ; All-day battery life ; Great performance for most tasks ; MagSafe charging is extremely convenient

More expensive ; Gets warm and throttles aggressively under intense workloads ; Base model has much slower storage ; Display notch gets in the way of menubar apps ; Midnight color gets covered in fingerprints ; Port options are still limited

Apple has finally redesigned the MacBook Air, giving it a completely new chassis with a new display and processor. It’s an incredible machine but comes at a higher cost than the previous M1 Air.

Apple MacBook Air M2 Entry Review – A very good, but too expensive daily MacBook


Notebookcheck reviews the new Apple MacBook Air M2 Midnight in the base-level spec with 8 GB RAM and 256 GB SSD storage. The old MacBook Pro 13 with the new Apple M2 chip launched a couple of weeks ago, and now we finally get the completely redesigned...

high-quality and slim chassis;good input devices;silent operation;brighter display with P3 and w/o PWM;very good speakers;long battery runtime at 150 nits;good system performance;MagSafe

neither Thunderbolt 4, nor Wi-Fi 6 160 MHz, and only one external screen is supported;worse efficiency than M1 SoC;entry-level spec with slow SSD;insufficient PSU;performance decrease under sustained workloads;high base price and costly upgrades

The new MacBook Air M2 is undoubtedly once again a very good mobile companion, but we are still a little bit disappointed on a very high level, which is definitely connected with the increased price point. The new chassis is extremely slim and the...
