Apple Confirms New Macbook Air M2 Specs; Order Available on July 8

Following the Global Developers Conference announcement of the latest Apple Silicon M2 chipset, Tim Cook and his team also showcased the latest  MacBook Pro and MacBook Air macOS laptops. The first to hit the market was the M2-powered MacBook Pro, and it didn't receive a warm reception, with its limited performance, tired design, and confusing placement, all of which were highlighted by reviews. strong. 

Apple has now confirmed the release date of the M2-powered MacBook Air and is very hopeful that this laptop will receive better reception. 

 pre-orders for the MacBook Air will open this Friday, July 8, with the first batch of laptops released on April 15. From Apple's press release:

"Beginning Friday, July 8, at 1 p.m. BST, the completely redesigned MacBook Air with M2 will be available to order, and will start arriving to customers worldwide on Friday, July 15. Supercharged by the M2 chip, the all-new MacBook Air features even more performance and a new strikingly thin design, a larger 13.6-inch Liquid Retina display, a 1080p FaceTime HD camera, a four-speaker sound system, up to 18 hours of battery life,1 and MagSafe charging. Now available in four gorgeous finishes — midnight, starlight, silver, and space grey — MacBook Air with M2 starts at £1249 and £1149 for education."

 Although con major numbers are larger, the M2 chip is no faster than the M1 Pro or M1 Max found in older MacBook Pro laptops, so a direct comparison would be with the first MacBook M1  Air, and a leap with around eighteen percent efficiency expected.

 One question will arise as to whether this is okay, given the performance and throttling issues faced by the  MacBook Pro M2. Another problem would arise if Apple reduced the effective read and write speeds of  SSD storage by running a single SSD chip instead of a paired SSD chip, another issue affecting some  M2 MacBook Pro SKUs. 

 Finally, can Apple meet the demand? Supply issues have put the consumer electronics industry on hold, and Apple has been hit. As a populist, consumer-focused laptop, this MacBook Air is sure to be in high demand, and delivery times could quickly increase when pre-orders open this Friday.
