Recently, the price of the MacBook Air M2 was significantly reduced.
AUGUST 20 UPDATE: B&H Photo and Amazon still have stock of this offer.
Apple’s newest ultraportable notebook and flagship model is the MacBook Air 2022. Although it was briefly on sale last month, we’ve discovered a hidden offer that significantly reduces its cost.
You can purchase the MacBook Air M2 (256GB) at B&H Photo for $1,099 for a constrained period (opens in new tab). That represents a $100 discount and is the first sizable offer we’ve seen for this new Mac. At this time, only the Starlight colour is covered by the offer. The pricing is the same on Amazon (opens in new tab), however there are very few items available. (For more discounts, see our overview of the top B&H Photo and Amazon coupon codes.)
MacBook Air (M2/256GB): $1,099 at B&H Photo, down from $1,199.
There are many new features in the MacBook Air M2. It has a bigger 13.6-inch Liquid Retina display with a resolution of 2560 x 1664, Apple’s new M2 processor with an 8-core GPU, 8GB of RAM, 256GB of SSD storage, a 1080p FaceTime camera, a four-speaker audio system with spatial audio, and MagSafe charging. We referred to the Editor’s Choice notebook as having an unequalled combination of performance, design, and battery life in our assessment of the MacBook Air M2. This offer has a finite supply. Amazon has the same price but less inventory yet offers it.
Given that the MacBook Air M2 is $100 more expensive than the outgoing model, B&H Photo’s $100 discount on the new MacBook Air is highly appreciated.
However, the higher price comes with a significant upgrade. The performance of the laptop is significantly improved by the new Apple M2 chip. Daily chores like browsing and streaming will go through without a hitch, and it can even handle more demanding jobs like photo or video editing.
In addition to the upgraded CPU, the MacBook Air M2 is superior to the pricey predecessor in terms of its display brightness, camera sharpness, and sound quality. All of this comes in a 20% smaller shell, increasing portability.
Additionally, this laptop can last all day without recharging thanks to its 14-hour battery life. If you’re still unsure about the upgrade, compare the MacBook Air 2022 to the MacBook Pro 2022.
