The new Apple MacBook Air with the M2 chip is supposed to be a battery life and performance leader in the thin and light laptop category. This MacBook Air is all new for 2022 and the M2 chip is crazy fast but how does it compare to the best Windows Laptops we've reviewed? Let's see how the Ryzen 7 6800U in the Zenbook S 13 OLED and Intel Alder Lake i7-1260P preform vs the Apple M2. So is the MacBook Air worth it?

Dropping 32 bit support means i have to keep an ancient mac mini with 32/64 bit OS installed and handy. And the incompatibility with certain software between 64 & M1/2 laptops means i need to keep an intel one around. If I received a M series macbook i'd have to keep all 3 around and this macbook already overheats and thermal throttles all the time.
