The MacBook shines for its lightness, power and autonomy, although the ordinary user can find more affordable options on the market.
In the case of MacBook, one of the main strengths that they have added in the recent past is the inclusion of self-made processors, dispensing with those created by Intel, which was accompanying Macs until the end of 2020.
The first exponent designed by Apple, the M1, has recently been replaced by the M2, which is the chip that incorporates the new Macbook Air.
The new M2 offers enormous autonomy. The Macbook Air easily endures more than a day of intensive use, about 18 hours in a row, without needing to recharge the battery.
They designed the device in a way to meet the needs of professionals in fields such as design or content creation.
Beyond this, the M2 chip can move practically what is thrown at it without the slightest problem, thanks to its 8-core CPU and its GPU, which can reach 10.
The Mac hardly heats up at all, a little, perhaps, when we use it in excess. In addition, it barely emits a noise when it is working.
If the chip is one of its main strengths, the design and dimensions of the laptop are not far behind either. The Mac is ‘featherweight’ and also more manageable than many tablets. It does not even reach 1.3 kilograms, and the thickness remains at 1.13 cm. The dimensions of the screen stay at 13.6 inches. And offers a fantastic image thanks to the Liquid Retina technology.
Regarding the inputs, the Air incorporates a physical connector for headphones
- one that has been falling into disuse for years
- USB-C Thunderbolt ports (this cable is for charging the laptops).
- The cable and plug also come in the box with the Mac.
The sound supported by four speakers with spatial audio technology that we also find in other brand devices, such as the third generation Airpods – offers promising results, although we cannot expect great wonders either. Meanwhile, the front camera, for video calls, provides a resolution of 1,080p.
The Macbook Air with M2 is a competent computer that can meet most users’ expectations. Although without a doubt, much more affordable Windows laptops are easily findable in the market that will be able to meet your needs. If you want a device from the apple family, it is also possible to save money by opting for the previous exponent of the Air family, even if it does not mount the M2 chip. And also the basic version, which stays at 256 GB of storage, and the next one, of 512 GB.
