Apple revealed the new MacBook Air M2 at WWDC 22. Apple’s most popular consumer MacBook has been updated with new internals and a new design. Apple also revealed a new 13-inch MacBook M2 Pro with the same M2 CPU as the MacBook Air M2.
The 13-inch MacBook Pro M2 starts at Rs 1,29,900, while the MacBook Air M2 starts at Rs 1,19,900. Should you buy one of the two MacBook models? We’ve put up a comparison of the M2 MacBook Air and the 13-inch MacBook Pro M2 to help you decide.
The new MacBook Air M2 features a completely different design from prior MacBook Air models. The frame has been reduced, like with other MacBook models launched recently. In actuality, the M2 MacBook Pro 13-inch has a very similar frame to this one.
Despite their commonly described, the M2 MacBook Air 2022 has an edge over the 13-inch MacBook Pro with an M2 processor. The MacBook Air 2022 is slimmer and lighter than the MacBook Pro 13-inch with an M2 processor. The M2 MacBook Pro, on the other hand, has a bigger battery and a heat-management fan built-in.
The Midnight, Starlight, Space Grey, and Silver colors are available for the M2 MacBook Air 2022.
The M2 13-inch MacBook Pro is available in only two colors: Space Grey and Silver.
The M2 MacBook Air comes with a MagSafe charging port and two USB Type-C Thunderbolt 4 ports. The Pro M2 13-inch model does not support MagSafe charging. The gadget only has two USB Type-C connectors. Both models contain a 3.5mm audio connection that supports high-impedance headphones.
The M2 MacBook Pro includes stereo speakers, whilst the Air M2 has a four-speaker audio system.
The MacBook Pro also has the Touch Bar and Touch ID. The M2 Air, on the other hand, includes a complete set of physical function keys as well as a Touch ID in the upper right corner of the keyboard.
The IPS LCD panel stays in both models. The M2 MacBook Air has a slightly bigger 13.6-inch screen than the M1. It also sports a comparable display to the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros, with a large notch at the top for the 1080p camera.
The 13-inch MacBook Pro M2 has the same display as the M1 variant. A 13.3-inch Retina display with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels is featured, as with a 720p camera. The maximum brightness of both screens is 500 nits.
Both MacBooks had the latest M2 chip installed. According to Apple, the M2 processor in the MacBook Air 2022 and the upcoming MacBook Pro M2 provides up to 18% higher CPU performance.
The M2 MacBook Air and Pro come standard with 8GB of RAM. The M2 MacBook Air features an 8-core CPU and a 10-core GPU. In its basic form, the M2 MacBook Pro 13-inch has an 8-core CPU and a 10-core GPU.
The RAM may be extended to 24GB, and the internal SSD can be expanded to 2TB. The M2 MacBook Air and M2 MacBook Pro 13-inch both come with 256GB of internal storage as standard.
It’s worth noting that the Pro model has an under-the-hood heat-dissipating fan. As the system attempts to cool down while doing resource-intensive activities, this may result in steady performance for a few more minutes/hours.
The MacBook Air M2 has a battery life of up to 18 hours on a single charge, according to Apple. Apple will offer a 30W USB Type-C power adapter with the 8-core GPU option, and a 35W dual USB Type-C power adapter with the 10-core GPU variation with 512GB of internal storage. Users will be able to upgrade from the 35W Dual USB Type-C converter to a 67W USB Type-C fast charger as an option. The M2 Air comes with a USB Type-C to MagSafe charging cable.
In comparison, the MacBook Pro offers a battery life of up to 20 hours on a single charge. The package includes a 67W USB Type-C converter and a USB Type-C cord.
