    Design | Less to carry More to

    Redesigned around the next-generation M2 chip, MacBook Air is strikingly thin and brings exceptional speed and power efficiency within its durable all-aluminum enclosure. It's the ultrafast, ultracapable laptop that lets you work, play, or create just about anything - anywhere.

    Midnight to Starlight | Four stellar finishes.

    MacBook Air comes in four gorgeous finishes - each with its own matching MagSafe charging cable.

    There's power in silence. Thanks to the efficiency of the M2 chip, MacBook Air can deliver amazing performance without a fan - so it stays completely silent no matter how intense the task.

    Built to last. Puts the earth first. As responsible as it is durable, MacBook Air features 100 percent recycled aluminum in its compact enclosure.

    Performance | Prepare for takeoff.

    The M2 chip starts the next generation of Apple silicon, with even more of the speed and power efficiency of M1. So you can get more done faster with a more powerful 8-core CPU. Create captivating images and animations with up to a 10-core GPU. Work with more streams of 4K and 8K ProRes video with the high-performance media engine. And keep working - or playing - all day and into the night with up to 18 hours of battery life.

    L W A,m is the mean A-weighted sound power level, rounded to the nearest 0.1 B.

    L p A,m is the mean A-weighted sound pressure level measured at operator position (rounded to the nearest 1 dB).

    1 B (bel) = 10 dB (decibel).

    K v is the statistical adder for computing upper-limit of A-weighted sound power level.

    The quantity, L W A,c (formerly called L W Ad) may be computed from the sum of L W A,m and K v .

    Screen size is measured diagonally. The displays on the 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Air with M2 chip have rounded corners at the top. When measured as a standard rectangular shape, the screens are 13.6 inches and 15.3 inches diagonally (actual viewable area is less).

    1GB = 1 billion bytes and 1TB = 1 trillion bytes; actual formatted capacity less.

    Weight varies by configuration and manufacturing process.

    Recycled material claim applies to the enclosure and is based on auditing done by UL LLC.

    ENERGY STAR and the ENERGY STAR mark are registered trademarks owned by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

    Apple's Regulated Substances Specification describes Apple's restrictions on the use of certain chemical substances in materials in Apple products, accessories, manufacturing processes, and packaging used for shipping products to Apple’s end-customers. Restrictions are derived from international laws or directives, regulatory agencies, eco-label requirements, environmental standards, and Apple policies. Every Apple product is free of PVC and phthalates except for AC power cords in India, Thailand (for 2-prong AC power cords), and South Korea, where we continue to seek government approval for our PVC and phthalates replacement. Apple products comply with the European Union Directive 2011/65/EU and its amendments, including exemptions for the use of lead such as high-temperature solder. Apple is working to phase out the use of these exempted substances for new products where technically possible.

    We estimate the percentage of electricity-related emissions in our manufacturing that is sourced from clean electricity by attributing to our carbon model clean energy procured by our suppliers in the prior fiscal year, based on the supplier manufacturing allocations at time of product launch. Included in this number is only clean electricity that Apple or its suppliers have procured as part of Apple’s Supplier Clean Energy Program.

    Responsible sourcing of wood fiber is defined in Apple’s Sustainable Fiber Specification. We consider wood fibers to include bamboo.

    Testing conducted by Apple in April and May 2023 using preproduction 15-inch MacBook Air systems with Apple M2, 8-core CPU, 10-core GPU, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB SSD. The wireless web test measures battery life by wirelessly browsing 25 popular websites with display brightness set to 8 clicks from bottom. The Apple TV app movie playback test measures battery life by playing back HD 1080p content with display brightness set to 8 clicks from bottom. Battery life varies by use and configuration. See apple.com/batteries for more information.

    All established final assembly supplier sites—those that have been Apple suppliers for more than one year—for 15-inch MacBook Air with M2 chip are third-party verified as Zero Waste by UL LLC (UL 2799 Standard). UL requires at least 90 percent diversion through methods other than waste to energy to achieve Zero Waste to Landfill (Silver 90–94 percent, Gold 95–99 percent, and Platinum 100 percent) designations.

    Carbon reductions are calculated against a baseline scenario: 1) No use of clean electricity for manufacturing or product use, beyond what is already available on the grid (based on regional emissions factors). 2) Apple’s carbon intensity of key materials as of 2015 (our baseline year for our 2030 product carbon neutrality goal). Carbon intensity of materials reflects use of recycled content and production technology. 3) Apple’s average mix of transportation modes (air, rail, ocean, ground) by product line across three years (fiscal years 2017 to 2019) to best capture the baseline transportation emissions of our products.
