Apple launches new MacBook Air with M3 chip

Translate from : Apple lancerer nye MacBook Air med M3 chip
Apple has presented their new MacBook Air with the M3 chip, which is up to 60% faster than the M1, supports Wi-Fi 6E and 18-hour battery life. Available from March 8th!

Apple's new MacBook Air laptops have landed exactly as many predicted, and while the upgrades are only internal, they're quite remarkable.

The new 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Air now both have Apple's M3 chip, which Apple says is up to 60 percent faster than the model with the M1 chip (Apple funnily doesn't compare with the M2 chip, probably because the differences aren't so big).


The M3 chip offers some additional benefits, such as faster Wi-Fi (thanks to support for the Wi-Fi 6E standard), as well as the ability to connect the notebook to two external displays, but only if the lid is closed. The M3 also has a 16-core Neural Engine, which provides faster performance for tasks related to artificial intelligence.

Other notable specs include an 18-hour battery life, up to 24GB of RAM, and up to 2TB of storage for both the 13-inch and 15-inch variants (none of which are unchanged from the previous models).

On the outside, the new laptops look exactly like the previous variants and have the same dimensions.

The new 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Air start at 1400$ and 2000$ respectively, and both are available in midnight, starlight, silver and space gray. The new laptops go on sale on March 8 but can be pre-ordered now.

You can still buy the M2 version of the MacBook Air from Apple, but only the 13-inch variant.
