MacBook Air M2 vs MacBook Air M1: What's different in the new model?

Apple launched the first silicon-powered MacBook Air back in late 2020. Around two years later, it went ahead and revealed a completely overhauled model, featuring a chipset bump from M1 to M2, and, more notably, a fresh, boxed design. The MacBook Air M2 now follows the same design language available on the MacBook Pro (2023). This means users get to enjoy a larger, notched display, MagSafe 3 charging, upgraded webcam, and more. Expectedly, though, there's a catch; the MacBook Air M2 costs $100 more than the M1. Both notebooks are officially sold by Apple and are widely available through other retailers. So which one is better for you? Let's find out.
