Apple has finally unveiled its biggest yet thinnest Macbook Air after months of rumors.

Unveiled during the tech giant's annual Worldwide Developers Conference on June 6 (Philippine time), the new Macbook Air is touted as the world's thinnest 15-inch laptop, being only 11.5 millimeters thin. It is also easy to carry around with its weight of only 3.3 pounds.

Boasting a 15.3-inch Liquid Retina display, the new MacBook Air has up to 500 nits of brightness and support for 1 billion colors, making content "remarkably rich and vibrant, and text razor sharp."


For its battery life, the laptop can stay functional for up to 18 hours and is advertised as up to "12 times faster than the fastest Intel-based MacBook Air."

Powered with the M2 chip, it contains 100GB/s of memory bandwidth and supports up to 24GB of memory. It also features MagSafe charging, two Thunderbolt ports for connecting accessories and a 3.5 millimeter headphone jack.

You can choose from four stylish colors, namely, midnight, starlight, space gray, and silver.


The 15-inch MacBook Air with M2 is available to order on Apple's website and in the Apple Store app, but the product is yet to be listed in the Apple Philippines website. The price starts at $1,299 (P73,000) and $1,199 (P67,380) for education.

While it can be ordered today, it will arrive to customers, in Apple Store locations and Apple's authorized resellers starting June 13.
