Lights and shadows of the 15-inch MacBook Air

It’s been almost a month since the launch of the 15-inch MacBook Air, a device that responds to users looking for the portability of the MacBook Air but with a larger screen without having to purchase the 16-inch Pro model. Now, a month after its launch and after working with it, what are their strengths and weaknesses? Let’s see it below.

There are several very interesting aspects of this MacBook Air, since we can safely say that it will be a sales success because it is a device that has generated great expectations even among users who are not its target. However, there are several sections that make your purchase a success yes or yes.

  • The screen: The 15-inch screen is a screen that for any person who works on the move, it can be said that they do not see the content they are working with well, even if they have two screens open at the same time. You can work perfectly with the Figma app and numerous web pages open in Safari to see how you want to carry out your design.

  • Battery: a larger size also means more space for the battery. If the Apple Silicon battery is a practically perfect battery, the incorporation of a larger volume and the M2 chip and its energy efficiency will make you forget to take the charger with you.
  • Second generation Apple Silicon: The portability of this MacBook Air does not mean that you cannot have power, since you can equip it with up to 24 GB of RAM, an 8-core CPU, 10-core GPU and 16-core Neural Engine. Plus, you can have up to 2TB of ultra-fast SSD storage.

  • Price: Its price is its great strong point. Obviously, 1500 euros is not a cheap device, but it is within a fairly consistent value for money, since, before, the price of the 13-inch MacBook Air was the same price as the current 15-inch MacBook Air. Therefore, it makes it the best option within the Air range.

Despite the fact that we have highlighted the main strengths, this MacBook Air partially inherits the problems that we had with the Air series and that Apple has not wanted or has not wanted to solve. Let’s see what aspects Apple should improve in the next generations.

  • Connection ports: the 15-inch MacBook Air only has two ports. It is true that connectivity has improved thanks to the entry of the MagSafe connector, but it is not enough because we are dealing with equipment designed for portability and that we probably carry third-party accessories in our backpack or briefcase. Adding a connection hub to our accessory is quite annoying and breaks the ergonomics of the minimalist design that this product offers. Perhaps Apple should have included some more port, either an SD card reader or another Thunderbolt 3 port. Space has.

  • Without fan: the MacBook Air is a computer designed for users looking for a balance between power and performance, but a very limited performance not because of the M2 chip, but because of the absence of fans. This absence forces you not to be very careful when you are working with processes that require a certain graphic complexity, since your computer can and does get very hot.
