Apple is about to launch a 15-inch MacBook and it looks like it will equip the laptop with a M2 processor or M2 Pro. According to the latest rumors, he shouldn’t have the brand ‘Air’ in the name, while having a fanless design with that line. Instead the 12-inch model recently rumored should arrive at the end of next year or in 2024increasing the uncertainty about the exit.
15-inch MacBook with M2 and M2 Pro on the way
According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, confirming what was said last week by Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, the new 15-inch MacBook is on its way. But it may be slow in coming compared to what we thought a few weeks ago.
In fact, it looks like it should go into production in early 2023, for a launch next spring. Maybe, for next year’s WWDC. It looks like it will have two different processor options. On the one hand, the chip M2 (35W) already seen in the MacBook Air and Pro 13 launched earlier this month. On the other, a chip M2 Pro (67W). The most powerful chip ever seen in an Apple fanless laptop.
At the moment it seems that Apple will not add the name “Air” to the computer (perhaps because of the M2 Pro?), Which although it will feature a fanless design and will be “a larger version of the 13.6-inch MacBook Air, according to Bloomberg reports. But for branding decisions it is still too early to be certain.
Difficult to be sure even on the 12-inch MacBook, which should arrive at the end of next year or maybe even later. Great uncertainty therefore. Also Kuo uses the conditional when writing that “Should Apple continue with the release, it would be the smallest laptop of the company since it discontinued the 12-inch MacBook in 2019 ″.
So next year could see the most powerful MacBook Air ever (if the name ‘Air’ comes along) and the smallest MacBook in years.
