Lowest price on M2 MacBook Air: 2022 machine falls $170 to $829 at Amazon; $849 elsewhere

So we’re talking about Apple’s compact and speedy 2022 13.6-inch MacBook Air laptop. It boasts an M2 chip, a 13.6-inch Liquid Retina display, 8GB unified memory, 256GB SSD storage, a backlit keyboard and a 1080p FaceTime HD camera.

It’s a great machine for college students, remote workers or families. It doesn’t match the same year’s MacBook Pro laptops for performance, but it’s more than enough machine for most users at work and at play.

And if the machine you’re replacing is an older MacBook Pro, you might be pleasantly surprised if the M2 MacBook Air betters its performance by a wide margin.

Peruse M2 MacBook Air characteristics:

  • Ultra-thin laptop weighs just 2.7 pounds.
  • Speed up work and play with an 8-core CPU, up to 10-core GPU and up to 24GB of unified memory (entry-level machine packs 8GB).
