M3 makes the 13-inch MacBook Air a workhorse

If you need a portable workhorse, there’s no better machine than the 13-inch MacBook Air. Apple’s latest M3 chip makes the laptop even more powerful, with the GPU getting a significant performance boost. Benchmarks indicate the M3 MacBookAir is up to 25% faster than its M2 predecessor.

Despite its thin and lightweight design, Apple’s in-house SoC ensures you will never feel the lack of power. Even more impressively, the 13-inch MacBook Air offers a claimed battery life of up to 18 hours. This is thanks to Apple fabricating the chip on TSMC’s cutting-edge 3nm node.

The 13-inch Liquid Retina panel lacks 120Hz ProMotion support. But it can get plenty bright at 500 nits and has great color reproduction and viewing angles. The notch on the display houses a 1080p FaceTime HD camera to ensure you look your best in video calls and online meetings.

Get the 13-inch MacBook Air for the same price as M2 Air

With Amazon slashing $100 off the M3 Air, you can get the 13-inch laptop for the same $999 price as its M2 predecessor. This makes the machine a fantastic buy, especially for college-going students and general usage.

Given the differences between the M2 and M3 MacBook Air, you should opt for the newer model.

Heavy users should grab the 16GB configuration of the machine with 512GB storage. It is also available with a similar $100 off, dropping its price to $1,399. Below are all the 13-inch MacBook Air variants on sale:
