Apple MacBook Air M3: Faster SoC, WiFi 6E, Dual External Display Support

Apple introduced the latest MacBook Air featuring their newest silicon, maintaining the familiar design while enhancing performance compared to its predecessor. The updated models also include various minor enhancements.

MacBook Air M3 Unveiled

Apple has launched the MacBook Air M3 in 13 and 15-inch sizes, marking a departure from the previous M2 Air release pattern. These new models retain the flat-edged chassis and display notch design elements.

Enhanced Display Connectivity

The MacBook Air M3 13 and 15-inch versions now support connectivity to two external displays simultaneously, a step up from the previous models which could only connect to one external display with the laptop lid closed.

Powerful Performance and Features

Powered by the M3 processor, the new MacBook Air boasts an 8-core CPU, up to a 10-core GPU, and a faster 16-core Neural Engine. Apple claims it to be the "world's best consumer laptop for AI," delivering a 60% performance increase over the M1 model and 13 times faster than the fastest Intel-based MacBooks. The Air M3 also promises an immersive gaming experience with hardware-accelerated mesh shading and ray tracing.

In addition to the chipset upgrade, the MacBook Air M3 includes WiFi-6E for faster speeds, voice isolation, wide spectrum microphone modes, and improved audio and video call clarity. It features a 1080p Facetime camera, three microphones, and support for Spatial Audio and Dolby Atmos.

The MacBook Air M3 is available in midnight, starlight, space gray, and silver color options. The midnight variant now includes an anodization seal to reduce fingerprint visibility, a common issue with the previous M2 Air model.

Pricing and Availability

The Apple MacBook Air M3 starts at $1,099 for the 13-inch model, while the 15-inch version begins at $1,299. In India, prices start at Rs 1,14,900 and Rs 1,34,900 for the respective models. Pre-orders are open now, and shipping is set to begin on March 8.
