Apple on Monday unveiled a new MacBook Air with the powerful M3 chip, and the 13-inch and 15-inch devices feature a thin and light design, up to 18 hours of battery life, Liquid Retina display, and new capabilities.

With M3, MacBook Air is up to 60 percent faster than the model with the M1 chip and up to 13 times faster than the fastest Intel-based MacBook Air, the company said in a statement.

The new capabilities include support for up to two external displays and up to two times faster Wi-Fi than the previous generation.

“From college students pursuing their degrees to business users who need powerful productivity, or anyone who simply wants the unmatched combination of performance, portability, and industry-leading battery life, all in a fanless design, the new MacBook Air continues to be the world’s best thin and light laptop,” said Greg Joswiak, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing.
