We were in November 2020 when it was An apple He announced what the rumors had been saying for some time: a bet on its own processors, using ARM technology, in an ecosystem known as Apple silicone. Then came the first wizard, a Apple M1which will equip new machines, such as Mac miniAnd the MacBook AirAnd the MacBook Pro And the iMac.

At the time of this announcement, the base price of the new Macbook Air quickly became known, which was 1159 EUR. Now, about a year and a half later, in Apple Worldwide Developer Conference 2022Apple announced the second generation of its Apple Silicon products m 2And prices have risen dramatically. So much so that the price of Macbook Air with M2 and basic specifications 1529 EUR. difference €370 between generations.

In any case, it has everything to achieve success in sales. With an ultra-slim design – 1.13 cm thick and 1.24 kg – and a sturdy frame made of 100% recycled aluminum, the new Macbook Air has been reimagined with the new M2 processor in mind, which, like the previous version, doesn’t need a fan – the Macbook Pro For example, it works.

According to Apple, the Macbook Air with the M2 is up to 1.4 times faster than the Macbook Air with the M1, achieving up to 18 hours of autonomy. Featuring an eight-core CPU and up to 10 GPU cores, this M2 is capable of processing more 4K and 8K ProRes video streams. Anyway, just real tests to prove the difference, not least due to the presence of the M1 Pro and M1 Max version of the first generation of Apple Silicon.

Furthermore, the new Macbook Air has a 13.6-inch Liquid Retina display with a native resolution of 2560 x 1664 with 224 pixels per inch and 500 nits, 8/16/24GB RAM options, and a 256GB SSD To 2TB, a very welcome Facetime Full HD camera (at last) and the return of charging via MagSafe 3, which will leave two Thunderbolt / USB 4 ports available for other things.

The new Macbook Air M2 will be available from July, and pricing, as mentioned, will start at 1,529 euros. As for the Macbook Pro 13, we don’t have much to say. It’s also undergoing the same upgrade, continues to use the Touch Bar, and unfortunately, continues to only show the Facetime camera in HD. What’s the point, in the middle of 2022, and knowing that the Macbook Air has a 1080p camera, this new 13-inch Macbook Pro only continues with a camera from the past? regrettable.
