The Best MacBooks
Updated Dec 11, 2022
The best Mac laptop for most people is the 13-inch MacBook Air with Apple’s M1 processor. It’s not the newest MacBook Air, but it’s less expensive than the latest model and more than fast enough for the things most people use a computer for—web browsing, working on documents, coding, and light photo and video editing. And for a better screen, an extra charging port, a nicer webcam, and a slightly faster processor, we recommend the new MacBook Air with the M2 processor as our upgrade pick.
