MacBook Air M2 is here

Apple released its newest MacBook Air on Friday, and the redesigned device generated buzz. The most significant change: It includes Apple’s new M2 processor. The new laptop is an essential step for Apple, according to Engadget, as its more-portable exterior is built around the new chip.

CNBC calls it the most significant MacBook redesign since 2010, noting that it comes at a crucial time: Apple’s Mac revenue was up 15% in the second quarter, and the new laptop could make or break that momentum as back-to-school season begins.
