Do you love the thinness of the MacBook Air but is put off by its small 13-inch display? Well, now is the time to reconsider as Apple just announced an all-new 15-inch version.
The display on the new Apple MacBook Air 15-inch has an exact dimension of 15.3 inches and uses a Liquid Retina panel with 500 nits of peak brightness.
Apple brags that it’s the thinnest 15-inch laptop in the market measuring at only 11.5mm. It is also lightweight at only 1.5kg. Apple claims that it’s 40% thinner and half a pound lighter than a “comparable PC laptop.”
As expected, the new MacBook Air 2023 also comes with MagSafe charging, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and two Thunderbolt ports for accessories and for connecting up to a 6K external screen.
The MacBook Air 15-inch is powered by the latest M2 silicon chip from Apple, which is said to be 12x better than the fastest Intel-based MacBook Air. This provides better performance and longer battery life of up to 18 hours.
Like its cousins, the new MacBook Air 15 has a notch, which holds the 1080p FaceTime webcam. It is joined by a three-mic array for better video calls. Audio is provided by the six-speaker sound system. Spatial Audio and Dolby Atmos support are also onboard.
The new MacBook Air 15 2023 has a price of Php82,990 in the Philippines for the 256GB of storage while the 512GB model costs Php94,990. Both of them will have the same M2 chip with an 8-core CPU and 10-core GPU, as well as 8GB of RAM and two Thunderbolt ports.
