About two years ago I made a video of the best laptop for most people and I still stand by that assessment. The M1 MacBook Air was the best bang for the buck when it came to performance and quality of materials. Even if it was technically a five-year-old design, I'd even say it still looks better today than almost anything at that price.

The problem, if you could call it that, is that Apple didn't follow its typical playbook of launching a successor for its price and then dropping the value of the old model. Instead, you can buy that two-year M1 variant today for that exact same price and features, you then get a separate choice of the old MacBook Pro with Touch Bar running on that M2, and then an extra model in-between that's kind of confusing.

This is the M2 MacBook Air, what Apple calls as a product you shouldn't take lightly, and what I'll call as almost the best laptop for most people. See, even if there is so much that's cool and kind of overdue for this laptop, there are a couple of elements that make me question the strategy behind it. I'm Jaime Rivera with Pocketnow and after spending a couple of months with it, let's dive in to our extended review sponsored by IVANKY. Stick around to learn how IVANKY solves one of my major complaints with this computer.
