It was during the last WWDC, the annual developer conference, that Apple decided to present its brand new MacBook Air, obviously equipped with the M2 chip. And this new ultraportable brings with it some rather amazing improvements, especially in terms of its design, which finally changes after many years without major developments. The performances, they are of course always at the rendezvous. If this recent reference has just arrived on the market, it does not however escape promotions, as is currently the case.

The highlights of the MacBook Air M2

  • An optimized design
  • An excellent 13.6-inch screen

A brand new design for the new MacBook

2022 is the year of change for Apple, especially when it comes to its famous MacBook Air. Indeed, the version with the M2 chip benefits from a new design after several years without major changes. Thus, the MacBook Air M2 benefits from a new, more modern shape: reduced edges around the screen, appearance of the notch, new speaker system hidden in the hinge… Small improvements that are enough to transform this ultraportable. Note also the disappearance of the mention “MacBook Air”, which was found on previous versions, under the screen. On the other hand, what does not change are the very neat finishes that characterize all Apple products. The whole thing is completed by the very good keyboard with backlit keys, as well as by the large comfortable trackpad.

A high quality LCD screen

Apple has still not decided to bet on OLED, or even mini-LED, but the screen contained in the MacBook Air 2022 does not lack advantages. The ultraportable therefore incorporates a new screen “Liquid Retina(i.e. IPS LCD) of 13.6 inches for a definition of 2,560 x 1,664 pixels. Despite the small notch that intrudes on the top of the panel, the screen is very pleasant to use, both in low light conditions and with somewhat strong external lighting. However, beware of glare from the sun, because the screen is rather shiny.

Performance boosted by the M2 chip

Its name has been integrated into the name of this new MacBook Air, and for good reason: the M2 chip is a central element of this ultraportable reference. After two years spent being powered by the M1 chip, the MacBook Air is therefore now entitled to this powerful processor, one of the main novelties of which is the transition to a larger GPU which can go up to 10 cores. Overall, the MacBook Air M2 benefits from significant performance gains compared to the previous version: it will run standard tasks such as web browsing, viewing various content or even office work without any problem. Unsurprisingly, this model will not really be suitable for more demanding tasks such as video editing or even demanding photo editing, uses that require a more powerful machine, such as the MacBook Pro.

In terms of autonomy, the MacBook Air M2 incorporates a 52.6 Wh battery, a volume within the standards on the market for this type of product. Autonomy proved to be rather impressive during our test. In standby, you can for example leave the MacBook away from an outlet for several nights and still remain at the same battery level. In use, the MacBook Air M2 displays excellent endurance, as long as it is not pushed to its limits: if many tabs are open, the machine will naturally heat up more, which will lead to a faster drop in autonomy.
