MacBook Air

Don’t take it lightly.

 


Design

Less to carry.

Redesigned around the next-generation M2 chip, MacBook Air is strikingly thin and brings exceptional speed and power efficiency within its durable all‑aluminium enclosure. It’s the ultrafast, ultra-capable laptop that lets you work, play or create just about anything — anywhere.

Midnight to Starlight. Four stellar finishes.

MacBook Air comes in four gorgeous finishes: Midnight, Space Grey, Silver, Starlight — each with its own matching MagSafe charging cable.

There’s power in silence. Thanks to the efficiency of the M2 chip, MacBook Air can deliver amazing performance without a fan — so it stays completely silent, no matter how intense the task.

Built to last. Puts the earth first. As responsible as it is durable, MacBook Air features 100 per cent recycled aluminium in its compact enclosure.

 

Performance

Prepare for take-off.

The M2 chip starts the next generation of Apple silicon, with even more of the speed and power efficiency of M1. So you can get more done faster with a more powerful 8‑core CPU. Create captivating images and animations with up to a 10-core GPU. Work with more streams of 4K and 8K ProRes video with the high‑performance media engine. And keep working — or playing — all day and into the night with up to 18 hours of battery life.

More speed for all your apps.

All your go-to apps run lightning fast in macOS — including Microsoft 365 and many of your favourite iOS apps. And with over 10,000 apps and plug-ins optimised for Apple silicon, your creative future is wide open.

All together now.

Make and receive iPhone calls on your Mac. Use your iPad as a second display. Unlock your Mac with your Apple Watch. It’s like they were all made for each other. Because they were.

Speedy. Substantial. Storage.

With up to a 2TB superfast SSD, MacBook Air lets you bring your photos, movies, music and documents with you — and open them in a flash.

Create to your heart’s content.

Thanks to the high-performance media engine on the M2 chip, you can play and edit even more streams of 4K and 8K ProRes video — including 4K ProRes video shot on iPhone 13 Pro.

Keep it secret. Keep it safe.

Apple silicon and macOS bring advanced built-in security to help defend against malware and viruses. And Mac is designed to give you the freedom to choose what you share and how you share it.

 

 





Liquid Retina display

To be clear, it’s gorgeous.


 

The breathtaking 13.6-inch Liquid Retina display is the biggest — and brightest — ever on MacBook Air, with support for 1 billion colours. Text is super-crisp, and photos and movies more brilliant and vivid, with rich contrast and sharp detail.


Camera and audio

Look sharp. Sound great.


MacBook Air review (M2, 2022) | Express.co.uk

Make your best impression on video calls with the 1080p FaceTime HD camera and three‑mic array. Surround yourself with an expansive soundstage, compliments of the four‑speaker sound system with Spatial Audio. MacBook Air was designed to thrill the senses.

1080p FaceTime HD camera. Look your best with a camera that doubles the resolution and low-light performance of the previous generation.

Three-mic array. Come through loud and clear on calls wherever you are, thanks to the three-mic array with advanced beamforming algorithms to capture clean audio.

Four-speaker sound system with Spatial Audio. Immerse yourself in movies and music with improved stereo separation and vocal clarity from two tweeters and two ultra-thin woofers. Spatial Audio with support for Dolby Atmos places sound all around you.



 

Magic Keyboard

Let your fingers fly.

Comfortable and quiet, Magic Keyboard now has a full‑height function key row for quick access to favourite controls and shortcuts. Touch ID makes it easy to unlock your Mac, enter passwords and make secure purchases or payments — all at the touch of a finger. And with the larger Force Touch trackpad, there’s even more space to work with precision.

 




Connectivity

Keep plugging away.

The quick-release MagSafe power connector easily attaches — and detaches — with magnets, preventing any unintended flights. Two Thunderbolt ports let you connect and power high-speed accessories. You can also connect up to a 6K display. And the headphone jack supports high‑impedance headphones.
