Sales for the new MacBook Air 2022 are now live. You can secure the new MacBook Air M2 right now at a host of retailers. However, stock is running out fast, so you may be wondering where to buy the MacBook Air 2022 right now. 

Apple has given the MacBook Air a serious overhaul. You're not only getting the powerful new Apple M2 chip but also a design that's 20% smaller than the previous Air and a new 13.6-inch Liquid Retina display that's 25% brighter. There's also a new 1080p FaceTime HD camera, four-speaker sound system, and four color options.

The MacBook Air M2 didn't see any discounts on Prime Day, but keep an eye on the latest MacBook deals as one retailer is bound to offer that first price cut. (Costco was first with a $50 discount for members only). 

Prices for the MacBook Air 2022 start at $1,199, which is a notable $200 increase over the MacBook Air M1. But the upgrades on offer seem worth the price hike. If you're fine with less power and an older design, the older Air is still available for $999.

Following a week of preorders, the MacBook Air 2022 will then go on sale July 15. And with some early back to school sales on Apple's new laptops you could secure a neat deal on the new Air. In fact, the Apple 2022 back to school discount is already knocking $100 off MacBook Air M2 preorders and also bundles a $150 Apple gift card. You must be a student to get this deal. (For more deals, check out our Apple Store promo codes page for more ways to save on Apple gear).
