Now is the best time of year to buy a new laptop and Amazon is giving early bird shoppers with a sweet discount before the impending holiday shopping madness.
The 2022 MacBook Air, packed with Apple’s custom M2 chip, brings new colors and performance enhancements to the brand’s highly praised laptop. Boasting power, portability, and endurance, the MacBook Air M2 is one of the best laptops money can buy. The base model packs a 13.6-inch (2560 x 1664) Liquid Retina display, an M2 8-core processor, 8-Core GPU, 8GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD. And it’s $150 off on Amazon! (opens in new tab)
In our MacBook Air M2 review, we praised its elegant redesign, good performance, and bright, colorful screen. Its battery lasted a whopping 14 hours in our Laptop Mag Battery test, which is impressive. In our experience, a typical laptop lasts no longer than 9 or 10 hours. We gave the MacBook Air M2 an overall rating of 4.5 out of 5-stars and our Editor’s Choice Award.
Weighing just 2.7 pounds and being only 0.4 inches thick, the MacBook Air fits easily into any medium-sized purse, messenger bag, or backpack. It’s even lighter and thinner than rivals such as the Dell XPS 13 (2.8 pounds, 0.6 inches) and HP Spectre x360 13 (2.8 pounds, 0.7 inches). Though the M2 MacBook Air is slightly heavier than the Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 7 Carbon (2.4 pounds, 0.6 inches), it still wins the “I’m thinner!” crown.
Connectivity-wise, the MacBook Air M2 delivers a pair of Thunderbolt 4 ports, headset jack, and a MagSafe charging port.
This deal won’t stick around for long, so keep that in mind!
