The biggest difference between the two versions of the MacBook Air is the chip and the screen, which Apple introduced with the M2 model. The M2 chip has been added to the new MacBook Air. This chip has 20 billion transistors, which is 25% more than the M1 chip, and is manufactured using the second-generation 5-nanometer manufacturing process. With four high-performance processors, it can support up to 24GB of LPDDR5 unified memory. A unified memory bandwidth of 100GB/s is supported by the microprocessor. The number of neural engines increased by 40% over the M1 to 1.58 billion.
A 13.6-inch Liquid Retina display with a notch form, a screen brightness of 500 nits, and a front-facing 1080P camera are also included in the new MacBook Air. The M1 MacBook Air, on the other hand, has a 13.3-inch Liquid Retina display with no notch, 400 nits of brightness, and a front-facing 720P camera.
The new MacBook Air is available in a variety of vibrant colours, including space grey, midnight, silver, and starlight. The MacBook Air M1 comes in three colour options: gold, silver, and space grey.
Furthermore, the new MacBook Air has up to 24GB of memory and 2TB of storage, whereas the M1 MacBook Air has up to 16GB of memory and 2TB of storage. Both promise up to 18 hours of battery life, feature Touch ID, Bluetooth 5.0, and 802.11ax Wi-Fi 6 technology.
