M2 MacBook Air delivers all-day battery life in a slim form factor

Apple’s slim but powerful M2 MacBook Air features a redesigned chassis that’s both lighter and slimmer than its M1 sibling. The display is slightly bigger at 13.6-inches, though it comes with a notch. On the plus side, that notch gives Apple enough space to squeeze in a 1080p FaceTime HD camera, so you will look good on video calls.

The M2 chip inside the machine is also notably faster than first-generation Apple silicon. The Cupertino giant claims the new chip is up to 18% faster than the M1. But the fanless design means the new Air will slow down during sustained loads.

Despite packing so much power in a slim form factor, the M2 MacBook Air can deliver up to 10 hours of battery life during everyday use. That should be enough to handle your college classes and homework sessions.

Save up to $149 on the 2022 MacBook Air

With a starting price tag of $1,199, the M2 MacBook Air is $200 more expensive than the M1 model. This also explains why Apple did not discontinue the older model. If you are looking to buy the 2022 MacBook Air, but the higher price would stretch your budget, you should take advantage of Amazon’s latest deal.

Amazon currently discounts the base $1,199 model of the M2 MacBook Air by $100 to $1,099. The best deal is on the 512GB configuration of the machine. Instead of $1,499, you can get it for $1,349 — a whopping $149 discount off its usual price. The only bummer is that the deal is only available in the space gray shade.

This is the lowest price the 512GB M2 MacBook Air has hit since its launch. Given the excellent deal, stocks are unlikely to last long. So make sure to place your order before the deal expires.
