The new Apple’s 15-inch MacBook Air sets a new standard for laptops worldwide. This latest addition to the MacBook Air family boasts an impressive array of features, including a 15.3-inch Liquid Retina display, the powerful M2 chip, and an unprecedented 18-hour battery life. All these features are packed into a sleek, fanless design, making it the thinnest 15-inch laptop on the market.
The MacBook Air: A Closer Look
The new MacBook Air is a testament to Apple’s commitment to pushing the boundaries of technology. “We’re thrilled to introduce the first 15-inch MacBook Air. With its incredible performance and striking design, the new MacBook Air is the world’s best 15-inch laptop. And it’s only possible with Apple silicon,” said John Ternus, Apple’s senior vice president of Hardware Engineering.
The MacBook Air’s 15.3-inch Liquid Retina display offers a viewing experience that is both expansive and immersive. With up to 500 nits of brightness and support for 1 billion colors, this display is twice the resolution and 25 percent brighter than comparable PC laptops.
Despite its large display, the MacBook Air maintains a slim profile, measuring only 11.5mm thin and weighing just 3.3 pounds. This makes it the world’s thinnest 15-inch laptop, nearly 40 percent thinner and half a pound lighter than similar PC laptops.
Performance and Battery Life
The MacBook Air’s M2 chip delivers performance that is up to 12 times faster than the fastest Intel-based MacBook Air. When compared to the best-selling 15-inch PC laptop with a Core i7 processor, the new MacBook Air is up to twice as fast. This performance is complemented by an extraordinary battery life of up to 18 hours, 50 percent more than on comparable PCs.
The MacBook Air also features a 1080p FaceTime HD camera, perfect for video conferencing, and a new six-speaker sound system that delivers immersive Spatial Audio. It comes in four finishes — midnight, starlight, space gray, and silver.
