MacBook Air (2022)

Two years after its launch, the MacBook Air (M2, 2022) continues to dominate our list of best laptops, and it’s clear that no new laptop has managed to unseat it from the top position.

Competitors like the Dell XPS 13 and offerings from Lenovo and HP have struggled to match the MacBook Air’s performance and value for money.

Surprisingly, Apple’s own biggest competitor in the M2 MacBook Air arena is itself. While it hasn’t released a direct successor, Apple introduced a 15-inch version in 2023, retaining many of the qualities that made the 13-inch model great but with a larger display.

However, for those who prioritize the MacBook Air’s thin, light, and portable design, the 15-inch model may not be the ideal choice. The 13-inch MacBook Air (M2, 2022) has also seen a noticeable price drop since its launch, enhancing its value proposition.

Despite the introduction of the M3 chip and new MacBook Pros, Apple has yet to unveil an M3 MacBook Air. This leaves the MacBook Air (M2, 2022) as the latest and greatest thin and light laptop in Apple’s lineup.

Interestingly, there’s a curious thought that this MacBook Air could have originally been intended as a redesigned MacBook Pro 13-inch with an M2 chip. It boasts a larger screen, better speakers, and a 1080p webcam compared to the actual MacBook Pro 13-inch (M2, 2022). Both laptops feature very similar M2 chips, and while many hoped for a range of pastel colors like the 24-inch iMac, the MacBook Air sticks with more professional hues.

Initially priced at $1,199 (£1,249 / AU$1,899), it seemed steep for an entry-level MacBook Air, but Apple later reduced the price to $1,099 (£1,149).

In conclusion, the MacBook Air (M2, 2022) impresses with its sleek design, larger and brighter screen, and commendable performance powered by the M2 chip.

It excels in battery life, lasting over 16 hours, making it ideal for work or travel. However, the higher starting price compared to its predecessor may not appeal to budget-conscious buyers.

For those seeking a thin and light laptop with robust performance, the MacBook Air (M2, 2022) remains a top choice, but potential buyers should consider the older M1 MacBook Air for a more budget-friendly option.

Overall, the MacBook Air (M2, 2022) is a compelling package, but the absence of an M3 model leaves it as Apple’s latest and greatest in the thin and light category.
