Wondering which options are best for you? In our hands-on MacBook Air M2 review, we found the redesigned ultraportable offers decent performance improvements, especially with graphics, over the last-gen model and is a better value than the 13-inch MacBook Pro with M2. While the standard 256GB configuration is perfectly fine for folks wanting to stick to the lowest M2 price point, SSD speeds will improve with a bump up to at least 512GB.
