In addition to a series of new Mac desktops, the new M2 Ultra processor and the Vison Pro headset, Apple also announced a 15-inch MacBook Air laptop at WWDC. Although there is no time for a more detailed evaluation, the editor of the main website took some time to play with this new product.

It is said to be 15 inches. In fact, the 15.3-inch Liquid Retina Display of the MBA 15 is slightly smaller than the average 15.6-inch Display, and it provides 500 nits of brightness. The color is bright and vivid indoors, but I don’t know how it will perform outdoors. The fuselage is 11.5mm thick and weighs 1.51 kg. The editor of the main website likes the lightness and lightness in his hand.

The MBA 15 uses a MagSafe 3 charging port and has two USB-C ports, both on the left side of the machine, with only one 3.5mm headphone jack on the right side. At the scene, Apple staff demonstrated how to use Photonator to modify photos, and some screens from the game “Stray” were shown The M2 processor of both can easily complete the job, but this in a controlled environment has the whole actual performance must await evaluation.

There was a demonstration of the MBA 15 six-speaker system on site. Unfortunately, the environment was too large to evaluate the quality of the sound effects. Even if the editor of the main station pressed the headphones to the front of the speaker, he could barely hear the music. Compared to the 13-inch MBA, the 15-inch version also has “bangs” a built-in 1080p webcam, but the MBA 15 has at least a 10-core processor and an enlarged touchpad.

MBA 15 has not been released in Taiwan yet, and the price starts from NT $ 42,900; while in Hong Kong, it can be pre-ordered now, and is expected to be shipped on June 13, with a price starting from HK$10,499.
