Apple MacBook Air (M3) review: don’t overlook it


With the inclusion of the M3, the MacBook Air remains one of the best laptops you can buy for the price.

Excellent GPU performance Compact and beautiful design Impeccable build quality Battery life is fantastic Better multimonitor support

Limited ports M2 might be better value

“The M3 makes the MacBook Air even better than before.”

MacBook Air 15-inch (M3) review: More than just a big MacBook Air


MacBook Air 15 is back with M3 inside

Thin-and-light chassis ; Bright Liquid Retina display ; Over 15 hours of battery life! ; Strong performance ; Well-priced

Limited ports ; Display could be more vibrant

The "just a bigger MacBook Air" laptop is back with a fresh engine inside and it's enough of an upgrade to an already outstanding product that all but recent M2 Air buyers need to give it a close look.

Apple MacBook Air 15 M3 review - Apple’s large everyday MacBook gets a power up


Notebookcheck reviews the new Apple MacBook Air 15 with the M3 SoC, 16 GB of RAM and Wi-Fi 6E. In the middle of last year, Apple launched the larger MacBook Air 15 and it was exactly what we expected: A bigger MacBook Air with more screen space and...

premium and slim case ;good input devices ;always silent operation ;bright display with P3 and no PWM ;very good speakers ;long battery life at 150 nits ;very good system performance ;faster Wi-Fi than before

neither Thunderbolt 4 nor Wi-Fi 7 ;only 2x USB-C & no card reader ;underpowered PSU (35W) ;no maintenance possibilities & expensive upgrades

The MacBook Air 15 M3 doesn't spring any surprises and although it comes with the M3 SoC and faster Wi-Fi module, it's not worth upgrading from the

Apple MacBook Air 15-inch M3 (2024) review


Is the big-screen MacBook Air 15-inch M3 the best MacBook Air yet, or is it just overkill?

You want a classy, lightweight laptop with a beautiful screen ; You need all-round performance without tech overwhelm ; You spend a lot of time working on the move or in confined spaces ; You’re fine with a smaller 13-inch screen

M3 MacBook Air review: The ideal Mac laptop for Intel hold-outs


Apple's latest update to the MacBook Air brings M3 to the consumer-oriented lineup. Sure, it's a spec-bump, but it's one that should be tremendously attractive to Intel Mac users.

MacBook Air M3 Review: Thank you, Apple, for this one thing!


In 2024, Apple upgraded its MacBook Air with the super-efficient M3 chip. In this review, nextpit finds out whether it's worth buying!

Truly a beautiful and high-quality notebook ; Fantastic performance level ; Finally supports two external displays ; Incredible battery life of up to 18 (!) hours ; Uses a high proportion of recycled materials

Still equipped with only two USB-C ports ; Display is outdated compared to the MacBook Pro ; Power supply unit is very weak at 35 W ; AI potential remains untapped

The M3 MacBook Air is more of an incremental upgrade. After some criticism, Apple has equipped its notebook with an anti-fingerprint coating. In addition, the manufacturer finally managed to make its standard silicon chips capable of operating two...

Apple MacBook Air 15-inch (M3, 2024) review: the big Mac adds more muscle


Just nine months after the 15-inch MacBook Air was introduced, it's back with an M3 processor hardware upgrade

Thin and light for a 15-inch laptop ; M3 is super-powerful when needed ; Silent operation as no fan

Battery life less than predecessor in our tests ; Yes, there's a screen notch

With a 15.3-inch display, the 'Big Air' in Apple's MacBook line-up has a simple sales pitch: it's a MacBook Air, embodying everything typically slim, light and portable about that, except it's got a bigger screen. And now it's got more power, too,...

Apple MacBook Air 15-inch (M3) review: Bigger, bolder, faster, better


It's all about the speed and the space

Big screen ; Midnight finish ; Excellent performance ; AI-ready

Other than size, it's the same as the 13-inch model ; Essentially the same weight as a MacBook Pro ; It should have better battery life than the 13-inch system

The Apple MacBook Air 15-inch (M3) is thin, light (for its size), and offers almost unbeatable performance in its class. It's a big-screen companion that's ready for work, entertainment, play, and AI, and will easily remain atop our best 15-inch laptop...

Apple MacBook Air M3 vs MacBook Air M2: what’s the difference?


There's a difference in power under the hood thanks to M3, but otherwise, these MacBook Air models are pretty similar.
