The Apple MacBook Air series is the most popular lineup of MacBooks. However, the recent MacBooks were only available with a 13-inch screen, which was too small for many people.

As a result, Apple launched the new 15-inch Apple MacBook Air. This is also the only 15-inch MacBook that Apple currently sells.

The new 15-inch MacBook Air is almost exactly the same as the 13-inch MacBook Air. Apart from the screen size and battery capacity, the only key differences are that the 15-inch model has a better sound system and starts with a 10-core GPU that comes with 35W dual USB-C port compact power adapter.
