Apple just rolled out the latest 13- and 15-inch MacBook Air, now supercharged by the mighty M3 chip. These latest additions to Apple’s lineup encapsulate what most want: top-notch performance with unparalleled portability. Most importantly, they promise a hefty 18 hours of battery life — all of this wrapped in a sleek and light design.

MacBook Air users still on the Intel models will be happiest, with the latest iteration boasting up to 13x improvement in performance (up to 60% compared to the M1 versions). The new MacBook Air also features an upgraded Neural Engine to accelerate machine learning tasks.

For those who love multitasking, this year’s models now support up to two external displays. Other upgrades come in the form of Wi-Fi 6E for faster connectivity and upgraded microphones to enhance call quality. This year’s cohort features four finishes: midnight, starlight, space grey, and silver. Fans will be pleased to know that prices this year remain the same, with prices for the 13″ model starting from SGD1,599 and the 15″ starting from SGD1,899.
