The new MacBook will feature an even thinner and lighter design this time, making it perfect to carry anywhere. The upgraded performance with the M2 chip is the major highlight of the new MacBook Air along with a larger 13.6-inch Liquid Retina display and thinner bezels, giving more screen space to the users. On the camera front, Apple has enhanced the camera of their MacBook and it will be capable to deliver HD quality FaceTime with 1080p along with a four-speaker sound system placed on the upper side of the keyboard panel.
The new MacBook Air will be available in four colour variants- silver, space grey, midnight, and starlight.
At the live event, Greg Joswiak, VP of Worldwide Marketing at Apple said. "We are so excited to bring our new M2 chip to the world's two most popular laptops -- the MacBook Air and 13-inch MacBook Pro."

MacBook Pro is claimed to be the world’s second best-selling laptop which delivers incredible performance, along with up to 24GB of unified memory, up to 20 hours of battery life, and ProRes acceleration within a compact design.
