If you're lucky, you'll have the MacBook Air M2 in your hands on July 15.
You’ll be able to pre-order the M2 MacBook Air from Friday
If you're keen to get your hands on Apple's latest MacBook Air, the manufacturer is almost ready to sell you one. M2 MacBook Air pre-orders will start at 10pm (AEST) on Friday via the Apple website, ahead of a July 15 launch date.
There are two base models to pick from: a $1,899 configuration with an 8-Core GPU, 8GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD, or a $2,349 configuration with a 10-Core GPU, 8GB of RAM, and a 512GB SSD. Upgrading your RAM to 16GB on either model will set you back an extra $300, and is something we tend to recommend for most users.
If you want to fully spec out an M2 MacBook Air, you're looking at $3,849 for a 10-Core GPU, 24GB of RAM, and a 2TB SSD.
The M2 MacBook Air will be available in four colours: space grey, silver, midnight (a dark blue), and startlight (a light gold).
Announced alongside the M2 MacBook Pro, the M2 MacBook Air is the first significant redesign of Apple's lightest laptop in quite some time. It benefits from a larger 13.6-inch display complete with a notch, MagSafe charging to free up USB-C ports, a 1080p webcam, and improved speakers. Apple says the battery will last up to 18 hours.
The M2 MacBook Air does however miss out on the active cooling you'll find in the M2 MacBook Pro due to the thinner and lighter form factor.
