The Apple MacBook Air just got bigger and better! Flaunting a whopping 15-inches build, the new MacBook Air has many innovative features like better performance and a scaled-up screen while maintaining the battery life.
However, it is noteworthy to mention that despite the MacBook increasing in size, it has not turned bulky. So, what’s new? The new 15-inch MacBook Air has a display that is approximately 15.3 inches big. It has a resolution of 2,880 by 1,564 pixels. The Liquid Retina IPS display provides a pixel density similar to that of a 13-inch model, but it is slightly boosted in size that is suited for the 15-inch dimension. The gadget offers a display brightness of up to 500 nits, and it is also built in a way that it will support DCI-P3 color.
The bigger Apple MacBook has more extensive audio systems too. It can accommodate six speakers inside it, improving the sound quality produced by the MacBook. It also has a dual-woofer set-up that is paired downward and upward to allow force-canceling sound. With enhanced features, the touchpad has also increased in size. The wider palm rest also deserves special mention.
As an upgrade to the 13-inch model of the Apple MacBook Air, the 15-inch model has a base processor of a 10-core CPU version. The larger chassis also allows better passive cooling in a fanless design. This enables the device to function in a better manner. It is also important to mention that the larger MacBook Air has a large battery that is capable of providing 18 hours of battery life.
Despite all the alterations and upgrades that have been made, Apple has maintained similarities in several aspects. The 15-inch MacBook Air maintains an ultra-slim structure like the 13-inch model. Being only 0.45 inches thick and weighing around 3.3 pounds, the gadget is extremely easy to carry around.
The port section of the 15-inch Macbook Air model has also been kept the same as the 13-inch model, consisting of a pair of Thunderbolt 4 ports, one 3.5 mm audio jack, and one MagSafe charging port. However, it does not have features like an HDMI output so you will need an adapter or a docking station. It also has an M2 chip, similar to that of the 13-inch model of MacBook Air.
In a nutshell, the bigger version of the MacBook Air is better in terms of screen, but it lacks practicality. Therefore, this is an excellent addition to the Apple family for those looking forward to a luxurious gadget.
