The MacBook Air M2 is finally in the hands of preorders, at least those not affected by the preorder delay. The reception has been very positive so far, with owners showing off their new laptops on social media and showing off their new laptops in some gorgeous photos.
Compared to the new M2 MacBook Air, the old M1 Macbook Air has significant differences, including the loss of the iconic wedge-shaped design, increased screen and keyboard size, and other quality-of-life changes.
What seems to impress new buyers the most is the laptop’s stunning colors and sleeker design, which undoubtedly makes it very photogenic.

You can see the bigger and brighter screen and how the M2 is thinner but still has a nice build.comparison between us Old M1 and new M2 better show this.
Of course, not everyone is solely focused on the outside – there are also posts showing the inner workings of the machine, including features that even Apple hasn’t discussed.

Breakthrough: Apple’s M2 MacBook Air has its U1 ultra-wideband chip mounted directly on the new logic board. Apple never mentions this anywhere in the tech specs. This will be used in Apple’s future Ultra Wideband ecosystem, possibly supporting lossless audio on the AirPods Pro 2. (maybe) pic.twitter.com/cCedtsC7eGJuly 15, 2022

There have also been criticisms, including some pointing out that the charging port wears out after one use, and others complaining that the trackpad doesn’t have the same click as the M1.
The M2 MacBook Air looks more amazing than I thought! Sadly, the new midnight colors do wear out very easily. That’s the USB-C port after 1 use. pic.twitter.com/zG2TssMHrfJuly 15, 2022
I’d say… the trackpad on the M2 MacBook Air doesn’t click very well. pic.twitter.com/45CQTNUfhOJuly 15, 2022
