Announced at WWDC 2022 after months of rumors, the new MacBook Air finally hit the market on July 15, armed with an all-new chassis and an M2 chip practically designed for it. But in an economic context to say the least troubled, the device tumbles with a sharp rise in price in France. Let’s see if this new Mac has enough arguments to make us pass the pill.

Apple MacBook Air M2 (2022)

  • M2 chip performance and absolute silence (no fan)
  • Refined device, with impeccable finishes
  • Divine keyboard, orgasmic trackpad
  • Bigger, brighter screen
  • Impressive autonomy
  • Insufficient SSD performance on the base model
  • Price hike over the MacBook Air M1
  • Poor and poorly distributed connectors
  • Ugly and unnecessary notch (little progress on the webcam, no FaceID sensors)
  • Slow charging
