MacBook Air M2 2022 Review

With a satirical edge and undertones of technology, gadgets and accessories, I aim to make my writing both informative and entertaining.

MacBook Air M1 vs. M2

The MacBook Air M2 is a great laptop for anyone who wants to do some light computing on their computer. It's fast and has great battery life, but it's also quite expensive.

The good news is that the MacBook Air M1 still holds up pretty well today, especially considering how long ago it was released (2020). The hard drive can be replaced with an SSD if you want better performance and storage space (or vice versa), which will help make your laptop feel faster overall—but don't get too carried away! You'll probably want to find another one online if you're trying to save money or choose between these two options because both offer great value compared with other laptops at similar prices.

Design

As you can tell from the name, the MacBook Air M2 2022 has a larger screen than its predecessor. The display is much thinner as well, which makes it more comfortable to hold in your hand and use with one hand. This model also weighs less than previous models (1.3kg or 2 pounds), so your legs won’t get tired while typing away on it for hours at a time!

The processor inside this laptop is up to four times faster than previous models, allowing you to multitask like crazy without having any trouble keeping up with everything else going on around you at once—and if something does go wrong with your computer or if there's an app that doesn't work right away then all you need do is restart it by pressing down on power button until light comes back on again

Display

The MacBook Air M2 2022 display is a 15.6-inch LED-backlit display with IPS technology. It has a 2,160 x 1,440 resolution and 16:9 aspect ratio, which means it's taller than the standard 16:10 ratio for most laptops you'll find in stores today. Apple says this means an "improved" viewing experience with more screen space available to show off your content without sacrificing what you're doing on your computer.

The MacBook Air M2 2022 uses an LCD panel instead of an OLED panel like some other models in its class; however, it doesn't use touch functionality at all (no touch screen here). Instead, users will have access to multitouch support thanks to 10-point multitouch capabilities on each side of the keyboard area along with three separate buttons below them (left click), right click button), control key).

Performance

The MacBook Air M2 2022 processor is a 2.9 GHz dual-core Intel Core i5, with 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB SSD storage. This model features an 11.6" retina display with 2560 x 1600 resolution and True Tone technology (which adjusts the color temperature based on the ambient light). The keyboard has 72 separate keys; there is no backlit option available on this model.

The battery life for this laptop can last up to 10 hours when fully charged, but it will take more than five hours to recharge if used continuously throughout the day (for example if you're watching videos).

Battery

The MacBook Air M2 2022 battery can last up to 10 hours, according to Apple. This is a pretty standard claim for any laptop, but it's worth noting that the MacBook Air M2 2022 doesn't have the same quality components as other laptops in this price range.
