Apple presents the new MacBook Air with Apple M3, support for dual monitors, and Wi-Fi 6E

Introducing the brand new MacBook Air M3, featuring improved performance with the Apple M3 chip. Not only is this new chip faster, but it also allows for the connection of two monitors to the Ultrabook, albeit with one restriction.

The new MacBook Air M3 now runs on the Apple M3 chip, delivering 20% higher CPU and GPU performance compared to the previous Apple M2. It also introduces new AV1 hardware decoding, reducing power consumption when streaming videos. Additionally, the new chip brings two additional upgrades: support for Wi-Fi 6E and the ability to connect two external monitors.

However, this feature only functions when the MacBook Air is closed and not using the laptop display. In this scenario, it supports both a 6K and a 5K monitor, each with a refresh rate of 60Hz. The device has two USB-C ports supporting Thunderbolt and USB 4, a 3.5 mm headphone jack, and MagSafe. The battery life remains unchanged at 15 hours of wireless web surfing, while the rest of the features remain consistent.

Buyers can choose between a 13.5-inch and a 15.3-inch Liquid Retina display, both with a pixel density of 224 PPI and a brightness of 500 nits. The display utilizes an IPS panel with LED backlighting. Standard features include a backlit keyboard, a multi-touch trackpad, high-quality quad speakers, and macOS. The 13-inch model measures 1.13 centimeters in thickness and weighs 1.24 kilograms, while the 15-inch model measures 1.15 centimeters and weighs 1.51 kilograms. Though the differences are minimal, it may be worth reviewing our test of the previous model for further consideration.
