The MacBook Air (M2) shook things up a little by offering two different sizes — the 13.6-inch screen option and a 15-inch one. The latter features in our look at the best MacBooks. In all cases, you get the M2 chip which is faster than the previous M1, a bigger screen, more brightness from the display, along with a better 1080p FaceTime HD camera, and a larger speaker sound system.
