Everything we know about the new Apple laptop

  • MacBook Air: The best offers, with a discount of 200 euros

    Well no, the new MacBook Air does not have an M1 Pro processor mounted, nor an M1 Max, as rumored, but the new M2 processor. The new M2? 18% faster than M1 and 1.9x faster performance than “latest 10 core laptop chip” with 8 core CPU (4 high performance and 4 efficiency). All packaged in a new design reminiscent of the 14-inch MacBook Pro. With a flatter design, 20% thinner, with MagSafe, notch, 13.6-inch screen, 500 nits and Full HD camera, solving one of the drawbacks of the current model, now the differences between the MacBoor Air and the MacBook Pro as we knew it are quite blurry. Apple has also introduced the M2 in a new 13-inch MacBook Pro. With a difference of 100 euros, it is not so clear that the MacBook Pro is a better option. Another thing is the rest of the MacBook Pro family. The great surprise of WWDC 2022 has been the presentation of the new M2 processor and its incorporation into the MacBook Air, when many rumors pointed to the latest now that it would go directly only to the new MacBook Pro. In November 2020 Apple showed what its M1 chip was capable of by introducing it into the MacBook Air model. In October 2021, it unveiled the possibilities of its new M1 Pro and M1 Max chips in the new MacBook Pro. It was rumored that Apple could have announced at its Peak Performance event, along with the new iPhone SE 3 5G and a new iPad Air. , a new MacBook Air that would demonstrate the capacity of its new M1 Ultra chip, the evolution of the M1 Pro and the M1 Max. Did it make sense to launch a new MacBook Air with a more advanced chip than the M1 Pro and M1 Max before it? And does it make sense now? The current design of the MacBook Air dates back to 2018 and was a test bed for the launch of Apple’s M1 chip in 2020, so it fits that it does the same with the M2 now. The M1 are thus reserved for their tablets and the new M1 Ultra and M2 on their laptops. Did the MacBook Air need a refresh? Removing the webcam, the truth is that it still could have held. But, of course, market pressure is another. The new MacBook Pros have better screens and a better camera, and the MacBook Air couldn’t be left behind. The M2 is a way to continue to make the MacBook Air relevant. Another thing is that he wanted to do the same with the 13-inch MacBook Pro. Does it really make it relevant again? I do not have it so clear. But we leave that for another day, more rested.

    In this context, what clearly made more sense was to bring out a better MacBook Air that continues to demonstrate the capabilities of Apple’s new chips than to launch a cheaper MacBook Air, as some rumors also pointed out before they were released. the new MacBook Pro and before it was known that the MacBook Air would mount the new M2 processor. After launching the new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros, by updating the 13-inch MacBook Air now, the 13-inch MacBook Pro could have safely disappeared from its catalog. Without a doubt, the model with M1 has automatically become obsolete (right now you can find it with a 14% discount on Amazon for 1,029 euros in its 256GB configuration). The honor of presenting Apple’s most powerful chip at the Peak Performance event went to the Mac Studio, a hybrid between the Mac Mini on steroids and a smaller Mac Pro, however, in context, it’s much more important news than The MacBookr Air does not have the M1 Ultra or the M1 Max mounted in its new configuration, but the same M2 that is now mounted on the 14-inch MacBook Pro.

    Although Apple could keep the 13-inch MacBook Pro to serve as a bridge between the brand’s entry-level laptop, the MacBook Air, officially starting at 1,519 euros, and the cheaper 14-inch MacBook Pro (512GB), which we’re leaving at 2,249 euros, it doesn’t make much sense. With 1,619 euros, it is a price-bridge between the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro that could help condition the purchase, but it is not so clear.

    The value proposition for launching a new MacBook Air on the market, getting to the point, was the same as the one that was already made when the previous version was released, which promised to create code in Xcode up to 2.8 times faster, work in 3D in Final Cut Pro up to 5.9 times faster, compile up to four times more code on a single load… Each new iteration of Apple’s chips drives better performance per watt, allowing you to incrementally improve your device’s capabilities. But as the M1 Ultra has gone straight to the new Apple product, the Mac Studio, it was not so clear that the renewal of the MacBook Air was with this chip. The logical thing was to think that the MacBook Pro would have the M1 Ultra or the M1 Max mounted and the M1 Pro would be left to the MacBook Air. It was the way to continue making the 13-inch MacBook Air relevant and that is exactly what Apple has done by mounting the new M2 in these laptops. It is a very good move from a commercial point of view.

    This time market analysts have been wrong. TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo had been insisting for months that the new MacBook Air design would feature an M1 chip, rather than the “expected M2.”
