Practical with the M2 MacBook Air: All your questions answered

Happy MacBook Air launch day! Today marks the official debut date of the new M2 MacBook Air, which features the first major MacBook Air redesign in a decade. We got one of the new “M2” “MacBook Air” machines and decided to make a hands-on video where we answer questions MacRumors Reader.

The ‌M2‌ ‌MacBook Air‌ no longer has a conical design and instead looks a lot more like the MacBook Pro. It’s thinner and lighter than the previous model and comes in new colors including Midnight and Starlight.

In the video we answer questions about the performance of the “M2” chip for everyday tasks, which SSD storage you should choose and what you need to know about the SSD, whether you should upgrade the RAM, how the “M2” chip compares to the M1 Pro chip, how the display compares to the previous generation “MacBook Air” and a whole lot more.

You should watch our video for a complete “MacBook Air” overview with details MacRumors Readers wanted to know, but we want to hear from you too. Do you have a new “M2” “MacBook Air”? Let us know what you think of it in the comments.
