With the arrival of the new MacBook Air 2022 M2, the MacBook Air M1 has seen its price increase by 70 euros to now be displayed at 1,199 euros. Fortunately today, it can be found on sale at 999 euros on Amazon.
Present on two new laptops, the Apple M2 should be even more impressive than the first ARM chip from the Cupertino company. By introducing this new chip on its new MacBook Air 2022, Apple has increased the price of the MacBook Air M1. It is still more accessible than the new version of the laptop, and remains an excellent laptop, especially since Amazon is dropping .
What to remember about the MacBook Air M1
- The excellent performance of the Apple M1 chip
- An enduring laptop (with more than 15 hours of battery life)
- Fanless and therefore quieter

The most accessible MacBook
The new design overhaul with the notch is not on the MacBook Air 2020. The latter is a copy of its predecessors, which retains exemplary finishes. We always find a sober and elegant aesthetic, with an aluminum chassis, as well as a backlit keyboard embedding the Magic Keyboard – more pleasant to use than the butterfly keyboard.
If the new MacBook Air 2022 offers a 20% more compact design and loses a few grams, the 2020 model is ideal to carry with its 13-inch diagonal and its light weight of 1.29 kilos. You can also count on the presence of Touch ID to unlock the device with one finger.
The still very powerful M1 chip
Despite the introduction of the M2 chip – which should again undermine Intel – the one proposed two years ago now, the M1 chip based on an ARM architecture, has very good remains. You are guaranteed to have an efficient and powerful laptop PC on a daily basis. Compared to Intel, processor performance is up to 3.5 times better, and graphics performance is up to 5 times faster. With such a configuration, you will be able to carry out your daily tasks without any slowdown, even during video or photo editing for creative people. All this, in absolute silence, because this model has no fan, and will therefore be less noisy than in the past.
And with its endurance, the MacBook Air 2020 will accompany you throughout the day. The M1 chip provides a 50% increase over the previous generation. The ultrabook is capable of holding up to around 20 hours with typical use — up to 15 hours of wireless web browsing. This processor change imposes a rewrite of the applications, but your old X86 software can still be used thanks to the Rosetta 2 emulator. Note that this MacBook Air has a 256 GB SSD, which is also announced as twice as much faster than the older generation, and 8 GB of RAM to top it all off.
