The MacBook Air is Apple's most popular MacBook, likely because of its price point and suitability for general users. We love the MacBook Air, it's a great all round device and the introduction of the M1 processors has really pushed the boundaries of what it can handle, especially when configured with 16GB memory.
Apple currently offers the M1 MacBook Air, originally introduced in November 2020 and the M2 MacBook Air, introduced in July 2022. Originally the M1 MacBook Air was available with two GPU options (7-core and 8-core) however when they introduced the M2 model, Apple discontinued the 8-core GPU option.

It gets even more confusing when you factor age in, as it becomes difficult to make like for like comparisons.
