Went ahead and orderd the Midnight, with 512GB SSD, 16GB RAM, and upgraded GPU. Going to trade in my 2020 MBA as well (my 2012 MBA that's still kicking is, unsurprisngly, not eligible).

Fingerprints be damned, the Midnight color is too sexy to pass up.

I had the same thought. The reports have showed Midnight was smudgy even from WWDC, but it just looks too damn good.

I have a 2019 MBP that I love. I'd trade it in a heart beat for that Midnight Air M2 but they're only offering $330 trade. Mines 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD....Nah....

Die young and save yourself....

He must have got it, we haven't heard from him in a while.

Has anyone figured out why the M2 MacBook Air needs an accelerometer?

Is this a gaming thing, or a AR/VR thing?

Fighter jet pilots use them for looking up stuff?

Yeah that's very strange. Center Stage maybe? There's not really any moving parts to the thing so I'm just spitballing.

[edit]: Hmm. M2 Air isn't listed on the compatibility support page, so I dunno.

So it goes.

Black box so they know when the computer was dropped.

Just got mine today. First MacBook Air since the original one.

The size is incredible. It's super light and feels much better than my 2020 M1 13" MBP. It's exactly as small as reviewers have said. it's the size of the bottom case of the MacBook Pros.

I got the Midnight one, and the color is definitely going to be a fingerprint magnet, but it just looks too damn good to not get. Definitely seems more black to me for the most part, but I'm sure as I use it, in different environments, the blue will start to show more.

No real performance hits as far as I can tell from the M1 MBP, but then again, this computer is just basically used for office work and internet browsing, so there's no real power needed here.

The notch is interesting, but I like the extra screen space and I'm sure it will just blend in after using it for a while.

I am finding it odd to not have a Touch Bar, but the regular physical buttons are much better.

So is this with autocarrot 🥕 on or off?

Haha. I was trying to type that out while wrangling a three year old.

How do I delete the cache on my Mac? I've already tried all sorts of programs that my friends advised me.

My wife also got a new MBA, but got this one in silver. She was bored of the Space Gray and didn't really want the Midnight or Starlight.

It's the first silver Apple notebook we've had in a while and it looks a little weird to be honest. May end up putting a case on it to get the matte black color she's looking for.

Received my Midnight MBA and goddamn do I love it so far. Having the dedicated function row is awesome — at least for me. No more awkward pinky maneuvers (insert Dr Evil meme).

Feels A LOT snappier than my 2020 MBA.
