Apple finally gave the MacBook Air a much-needed refresh with the release of a 2022 model.

The new Apple MacBook Air 2022 boasts a flatter design and better sleekness. It also boasts a Magic Keyboard with bigger function key arrows, the updated MagSafe charging technology, and of course, a notch on the screen.


Possibly the main highlight here is the new Apple M2 chip. It is built on a 2nd-generation 5nm technology and consists of 20 billion transistors, which is 25% more than the M1.

Compared to the M1, this one is apparently 1.5x faster and 15x faster compared to an Intel-based model. It promises up to 18 hours of battery life. Photo and video editing on this thing — with the right software — should be a breeze.


The new Apple MacBook Air 2022 M2 with 8-core GPU, 256GB SSD, 30W Type-C adapter retails for Php69,990, while the 8-core GPU/512GB SSD/35W Type-C comes in at Php87,990.
