MacBook Air M3: Specifications, Design Color & Price in India

MacBook Air M3 Feature Details

Whether you are planning to step into the Mac world or think it’s time to replace your old MacBook with a new one, it’s important to know the nitty-gritty of a preferred model. After its launch on 4th March this year, you might have heard about the latest Apple MacBook Air M3. It comes in the 13-inch and 15-inch models. However detailed research is a must before making the buying decision. Will the MacBook Air M3 suit your needs? How is it better than the MacBook Air M2? Can it be an alternative to MacBook Pro? And most importantly, is the price worth it? The answer to these questions can help you to make the right decision.

After its launch in October last year, the Apple-made M3 silicon chip has been the talk of the tech town for a long time. The tech giant claimed the CPU performance of the M3 chip is up to 30% faster than M2. In comparison to the fastest Intel-based MacBook Air, it is 13x faster. So a MacBook Air M3 is an obvious choice over a MacBook Air M2. Both come in the same price range. The sleek fan-less design and a significantly light weight of 1.5 kg can also make you consider it a replacement for some entry-level MacBook Pro models. But, to make a fair decision you need to know more.

Performance of MacBook Air M3

Coming to the MacBook Air M3 performance, a 3-nanometre processing M3 chip powers this new batch of MacBook Air. The models in both sizes come with an 8-core CPU with four performance and 4 efficiency cores, along with a 16-core Neural Engine. Now this can ensure a smooth 4K video rendering, which is a hard job in comparison to many daily tasks you might carry on your MacBook Air. Coming to the graphics, all models of MacBook Air M3 are powered by a 10-core GPU except the 13-inch base model which comes with an 8-core GPU. The base models come with 8GB unified memory and are configurable up to 24GB.

MacBook Air M3 Display

Just like in the previous generation MacBook Air, Apple used the best-in-quality LED-backlit with IPS technology and 500 nits brightness. With Wide Colour (P3) and True Tone technology, it supports up to 1 billion colours. The brightness is automatically adjusted in accordance with the available surrounding light. Typically, the Mac Air M3 supports one external display with up to 6K resolution at 60Hz. But there’s an update here. Close the lid of the MacBook and you will be able to connect to a second external display with up to 5K resolution at 60Hz.

MacBook Air M3 Battery & Power

Apple claims that the MacBook Air M3 can support up to 18 hours of Apple TV app movie playback and up to 15 hours of wireless web browsing. Charging can be done via two USB-C ports at a maximum speed of 70W. The MagSafe port is also an option for charging. The MacBook Air M3 battery life is dependent on how you use it. While tasks like video rendering and gaming will drain the battery faster, other tasks can prolong the battery life.

Audio MacBook Air 3

Coming to the audio, there’s an upgrade from the previous generation MacBook Air. The 13-inch comes with a 4-speaker sound system and the 15-inch is equipped with a 6-speaker sound system with force-cancelling woofers. They support Spatial Audio when playing music or video with Dolby Atmos on built-in speakers and dynamic head tracking when using AirPods (3rd generation), AirPods Pro and AirPods Max. The supported audio formats include AAC, MP3, Apple Lossless, FLAC,

Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus and Dolby Atmos.

Price of MacBook Air M3 in India

Coming to the price, the 13-inch MacBook Air M3 starts at Rs 1,14,900/- and can go up to Rs 1,54,900/-. The 15-inch models range between Rs 1,34,900/- and Rs 1,74,900/-. The price will vary according to the customised configuration and from the source you will be buying.

Why buy a Mac Air M3?

With all the above tech features, one thing is crystal clear MacBook Air M3 is a much better option than the M2 models and at times can be compared to MacBook Pro M3 models, which come for a higher price. No matter whether you are planning to upgrade your Mac or are a first-time Mac user, it is undoubtedly a good choice. For gamers, content creators, and music producers who travel often, a 16 GB variant can be a good option instead of the pricier and heavier MacBook Pro. Those who are looking for heavier tasks, like 3D rendering and all, can avoid MacBook Air. For general users, a MacBook Air M3 8 GB will be the perfect companion.
