Apple expands MacBook Air lineup with 15-inch model

We’ve come a long way from the first MacBook Air!



We’ve come a long way from the first MacBook Air. Now, the thin device is getting a massive upgrade. During WWDC 2023, Apple expanded the thriving notebook lineup with a new 15-inch MacBook Air.

Quite a sizable upgrade, the new MacBook Air sports a 15.3-inch Liquid Retina display. The company touts that the upgraded screen offers twice the resolution and 25 percent brighter than a similar PC notebook.

Despite the larger screen, the new MacBook Air still has the thinnest form factor for its size. Weighing in at only 1.51kg and measuring at only 11.5mm in thickness, the notebook is still lithe as ever.

Under the hood, the 15-inch notebook will sport the M2 chipset. It boasts up to twice as fast performance compared to an Intel Core i7 processor. It includes an 8-core CPU with four performance cores and four efficiency cores, a 10-core GPU, and a 16-core Neural Engine.

Additionally, it will pack in a 1080p webcam for high-resolution video calls. It also, as the keynote says, “sounds awesome.” The notebook has a six-speaker sound system with two tweeters and two force-cancelling woofers.

Out of the box, the device will come with macOS Ventura. However, it will get the upcoming macOS Sonoma later this year.

The 15-inch MacBook Air will come in midnight, starlight, silver, and space grey. It will start at US$ 1,299 and will ship starting June 13.

Spoiler alert: This is a huge upgrade from the 16-inch Intel Core i9 MacBook Pro from 2019.

But would you compromise the portability of the 14-inch version over a bigger screen and battery?
