Justine is one of the most influential tech YouTubers and has had a chance to test out the ‌M2‌ ‌MacBook Air‌ for almost a week. In this episode, we talk through the ‌M2‌ ‌MacBook Air‌'s most important features and upgrades, including its design, display, color options, webcam, four-speaker setup, and more.

We discuss how the new machine faces up to full-time use, compare it to the M1 ‌MacBook Air‌, and consider who it is targeted toward. We also look at the SSD controversy associated with base model configurations of the ‌M2‌ ‌MacBook Air‌ and 13-inch MacBook Pro, and consider where the ‌MacBook Air‌ could be headed next, with rumors of a larger model with a 15.2-inch display and M2 and M2 Pro chip options on the horizon for early 2023.

I respect what she does, but I do wish she would see the flaws and not think everything is amazing, even talking about the studio display she said I love that display and there isn't any issues, she just can't ever say one thing is bad, that's why she can't be trusted for reviews

This. I have no hate for her. She has made a lot of money doing her thing. However, any time you have a tech reviewer and every product gets great reviews, there is an issue.

I hope Marques Brownlee (MKBHD) gets to be invited to a MacRumors show soon. Now, that will be an interesting show.

The notch needs to go.
There’s more than plenty enough space to fit the camera on the borders.

Exactly it’s terrible apple can’t put the camera in the bezel, on the smaller MacBook the notch looks horrible
