Here's how you can preorder the 2022 Macbook Air on Friday

Here's how you can preorder the 2022 Macbook Air on Friday

Preorders for Apple's 2022 MacBook Air, featuring an updated design, M2 processor, MagSafe charging, and a slightly larger display, will begin at $1,199. Preorders will be available online tomorrow, July 8th, at 8 AM ET / 5 AM PT, and orders will begin shipping on Friday, July 15th.

Here's a tip if you're having trouble preordering online for delivery (preorders don't usually sell out, but ship dates often get pushed back very quickly). Try to order at 8 AM ET on July 15th.

It follows Apple's 2022 MacBook Pro, which debuted the M2 chip in its first laptop with a Touch Bar. My colleague Monica Chin's review of the M2 concluded that it performs faster than the M1, and the battery life remains excellent (even when running system-intensive apps).

Since the new MacBook Air has the M2 chip and some cool features borrowed from the 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro (MagSafe charging, a 1080p webcam, and the notched display, to name a few), it's possible you'll want to buy this over the 13-inch MacBook Pro. You can find all the details about pricing here.

The cost of each configuration is listed below

The base $1,199 model has an M2 processor (eight-core CPU, eight-core GPU), 8GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD. Similar to the more expensive option below, this model comes with a 13.6-inch display, a 1080p webcam, a magnetic MagSafe 3 charging port, and two Thunderbolt / USB 4 ports. The power adapter that comes with this model is 30W USB-C.

For $1,499, you can get the M2 processor (eight-core CPU with 10-core GPU), 8GB of RAM, and 512GB SSD. You can choose between the 35W dual USB-C port adapter (so you can charge two devices simultaneously) or the faster 67W USB-C power adapter at no additional cost.

Spec Upgrades: How Much Do They Cost?

A $100 upgrade to the lower-end $1,199 model will get you a larger GPU core count (10 instead of eight). If you want to upgrade to 16GB RAM, you'll pay $200 more, while 24GB will cost $400 more.

The new MacBook Air supports up to 2TB of storage, though going that far will be quite expensive. It costs $200 to double the storage to 512GB, $400 to double it to 1TB, and $800 to double it to 2TB.

It will cost $200 to double the 512GB of storage to 1TB on the $1,499 model, and $600 to double it to 2TB. With the $1,499 MacBook Air, you get either a 35W dual USB-C port power adapter or a 67W USB-C fast charger, but it's an upsell if you're purchasing the $1,199 MacBook Air.

Considering Apple will sell each for $59, that's not bad. To fully maximize a MacBook Air's specs, you'll have to pay $2,499 before tax.
