This feather like laptop truly impressed me as a casual user. Hand testing it before purchase, I was immediately drawn to its exquisite features. Its 13inch display is perfect for youtube, Instagram, Reddit, and Facebook addicted like me, on the top of it; the battery life is BEST!Austin Colt, a casual user (my uncle)
Specification of reviewed device is: CPU: Apple M2 chip | GPU: M2 10-core | Display: 13.6-inch Liquid Retina Display (2560 x 1664), 60Hz, no touch option | Memory: 8GB RAM | Storage: 256GB SSD | Tested Battery life: 480 minutes | OS: macOS Ventura 13.0 | Material: Aluminum | Weight: Approximately 2.8 pounds
According to my experience, I noticed that while the iconic wedge-shaped design is no longer part of the MacBook Air, it retains its distinguished features, including MagSafe charging, Touch ID, and the scissor-switch keyboard with upgraded 1080p webcam in addition.
Although, in terms of processing power, the M2 chip doesn’t match the benchmarks of M1 Pro or M1 Max but it would be enough for any casual user. In my testing, this MacBook handled many chrome tabs with YouTube videos on, and to my surprise it generated no heat. My uncle, who is not a gamer, would agree that this laptop is ideal for non-gamers.
M2 MacBook Air works seamlessly with my iPhone and in my battery life testing, although this laptop didn’t quite match the M1 Pro model, but it lasted 480 minutes.
So, because MacBook Air’s performance and features are more than satisfactory, making it an ideal pick for those who prioritize a balance of power, portability, and reliability in their everyday computing needs, I recommended this laptop to my uncle and he is a happy user of this laptop which is Space Gray in color!
Forgot to mention, this laptop comes in 4 colors including Silver, Midnight, Space Gray, and Starlight.
Also, because the 2022 Macbook Air M2 256GB SSD is quite a bit expensive. For those who just just just want a laptop for day-to-day tasks, I would recommend to get yourself a Macbook Air M1 2020 model because the features and performance would feel like same.
