The M3 MacBook Air Has Been Revealed With Dual Screen Support And Faster Wi-Fi

The best portable laptop just got a little better

Apple has announced the M3 MacBook Air and it will launch in both the 13-inch and 15-inch variations.

Outside of the faster M3 chip, there’s some hardware improvements including the ability to use dual external screens for the first time with the standard Apple Silicon chip, although the laptop will need to be closed for this to work.

The M3 MacBook Air also has faster Wi-Fi 6E support which is an extremely welcome addition on the device. It will retain its super incredible battery life of up to 18 hours.

Apple says that the M3 chip is 60% faster than the M1 and 13x faster than the fastest intel-based MacBook Air. It offers an 8-core CPU and up to a 10-core GPU as well as support for up to 24GB of ram.

I called the M2 MacBook Air the perfect balance in my review going on to say that “The MacBook Air 15-Inch follows in the footsteps of its younger siblings in providing a great performing laptop in a portable body. The larger screen is much appreciated and the battery life continues to be best in class making this an easy recommendation for creatives and casual users alike”
