91.6% Apple MacBook Air 15 M3 review - Apple's grote alledaagse MacBook krijgt een oppepper | Notebookcheck
Ongeveer 8 maanden na de lancering van de MacBook Air 15 heeft Apple zijn grote, alledaagse MacBook geüpdatet en dankzij de nieuwe M3-processor presteert hij nog beter dan voorheen. Bovendien zijn de Wi-Fi-prestaties verbeterd. De prijs blijft echter net zo hoog.
15-inch MacBook Air M3 Malaysia review: Decent laptop, dreadful price
Bron: Soycincau Engels EN→NL
What does that extra RM500 get you then? Well you lose a little bit of screen size sure by going down to a 14.2-inch display, but that’s a Liquid Retina XDR display that’s not only a higher resolution but much brighter too and has the ProMotion 120Hz adaptive refresh rate. You’ll also find slightly better speakers, a longer rated battery life, significantly better I/O with HDMI and an SD card slot, and while it’s the same Apple M3 chip, there’s active cooling too for better sustained loads. Now I’m not saying that the 15-inch MacBook Air M3 is a bad laptop, far from it in fact. This is a yet another brilliantly built laptop from Apple.

Apple MacBook Air(15 英寸,M3)评测–轻薄包装中的大屏幕功能
Bron: Laptop Media Engels EN→NL
好了,朋友们,我们所说的有关 13 英寸机型的大部分内容同样适用于我们面前的这款苹果 MacBook Air(15 英寸,M3)。作为一款 15 英寸机型,该机超薄,重量也很轻。与大多数苹果机器一样,它的设计简洁而现代。铝制机身坚固耐用,制造质量无可挑剔。键盘具有良好的键程和点击反馈,非常适合使用。由于内存和固态硬盘都是焊接在一起的,因此要谨慎选择配置。即使是基本配置,16GB 的统一内存也足以满足大多数人的需求。如果你打算一直使用这款笔记本电脑,直到它的硬件性能过时为止,那么在资金不成问题的情况下,24GB 内存配置也不失为一个好主意。对于现代用户来说,基本的 256GB NVMe 似乎太小了,但如果你拥有外置硬盘或固态硬盘作为备份,也许默认的固态硬盘选项就能满足你的需求。重负载时没有噪音,键盘也不会太热,考虑到无风扇散热解决方案,这一点很好。说到散热,后者在中长期任务中表现出色。在长负载情况下,E 核心频率稳如磐石,而性能核心频率则降至 2.80 GHz。这比 13 英寸机器的频率高出 360Mhz。还不错。15.3 英寸 IPS 显示屏的最大亮度高、sRGB/DCI-P3 全覆盖以及良好的色彩准确性给人留下了深刻印象。如果再加上超长的电池续航时间,苹果 MacBook Air(15 英寸,M3)对于那些拥有基于 M1 的设备、需要更强大的性能以及无 PWM 显示屏、舒适的输入设备和出色的制造质量的用户来说,是一个不错的选择。

Apple MacBook Air (15″, M3) review – Big Screen Power in a Thin and Light Package
Bron: Laptop Media Engels EN→NL
Well, folks, most of the things that we said about the 13-inch model also apply to the Apple MacBook Air (15″, M3) in front of us. This machine is super thin for a 15-incher, and the weight is low as well. Just like most Apple machines, the design is clean and modern. No complaints regarding the build quality, the aluminum chassis is solid. The keyboard with its good key travel and clicky feedback is great for usage and the same can be said for the sizable and smooth touchpad. Pick your configuration carefully because the memory and the SSD are soldered. Here, even the base configuration features 16GB of unified memory which should be enough for most people. If you plan to use this laptop until it gets obsolete in terms of hardware power, the 24GB RAM configuration isn’t a bad idea if money isn’t a problem.

80% Apple MacBook Air M3 review: small upgrades
Bron: The Verge Engels EN→NL
There are people like my mother for whom a base 13- or 15-inch MacBook Air M3 would be fine for now. She mostly writes emails and watches movies with her current MacBook, but since the memory can’t be upgraded later, it’s worth spending an extra $200 to extend its usable lifespan by several years. Most high school students and humanities majors can get by with the same, too, but again: anything less than 16GB of memory and 512GB of storage is not ideal, especially in the long term. The MacBook Air is still one of the best laptops you can buy for general-purpose use, and since you can’t completely avoid Apple’s upgrade funnel, spending an extra $100 to get the M3 instead of the M2 is small potatoes compared to how far the upgrade funnel could take you. If you have an M1 Air or earlier and are fine giving up the wedge shape, you’re going to have a great time with the M3 Air, as long as you upgrade the memory. And maybe the storage. Or maybe spend even more to get the Pro instead.

86% 15-inch M3 MacBook Air review: Read this before you even think about buying
Bron: Mashable Engels EN→NL
The 15-inch M3 MacBook Air may seem like a simple refresh, but as someone who owns the M2 MacBook Air, I’d definitely trade it in for the new-generation model. Our testing shows that the M3 MacBook Air is about 20% faster, give or take, than the M2 MacBook Air, particularly when it comes to creator-focused workflows. In other words, expect zippier performance, whether you’re a fledgling video editor or a photo-editing hobbyist. The 15-inch M3 MacBook Air continues to blur the line of the Air and Pro models, providing ample “oomph” for creatives, professionals, and students who need robust performance that can handle their multifaceted workflows.

90% MacBook Air 15-inch (M3) review: More than just a big MacBook Air
Bron: Laptop Mag Engels EN→NL
After having spent the last two weeks with the MacBook Air 15 M3, it's safe to say that this is another excellent laptop from Apple. While I can see a clear performance difference between the M3 Air 15 and my M2-powered daily driver, I would still caution that most M2 owners can likely hold out for an M4 upgrade in the future. If money is no object, then by all means, go ahead, but realistically a couple of seconds shaved off opening an app isn't worth the cost. However, I think this is an easy upgrade recommendation for anyone on an M1 or Intel-based MacBook Air. You are looking at not only a massive performance boost but also stepping into the more modern Air design, which crucially includes MagSafe 3, allowing you to use both Thunderbolt/USB 4 ports while charging.

100% Apple MacBook Air 15-inch (M3, 2024) review: the big Mac adds more muscle
Bron: T3 Engels EN→NL
With a 15.3-inch display, the 'Big Air' in Apple's MacBook line-up has a simple sales pitch: it's a MacBook Air, embodying everything typically slim, light and portable about that, except it's got a bigger screen. And now it's got more power, too, thanks to the M3 chip inside for this 2024 release. So what are the compromises? Well, it costs more than a 13-inch model, as you'd expect. I've also seen minor battery life decreases in my tests compared to the previous model. And that in-screen notch may continue to divide the crowd. But the more I use the 15-inch model, the more I want it as a desktop replacement. Happy as a long-time MacBook Air 13-inch user, which is great for portability, the larger-screen MacBook Air still maintains a small footprint and lightweight design all considered – truly delivering on that 'Air' name.

90% Apple M3 MacBook Air 15-inch review: The sweet spot laptop
Bron: Tom's Guide Engels EN→NL
The fact that it's hard to find something wrong with the MacBook Air 15-inch M3 tells you a lot about Apple's mid-range laptop. You get very strong performance from the M3 chip paired with super long battery life, a great display, and a sturdy, lightweight design. Competing Windows laptops with Intel Core Ultra 7 processors offer a bit more raw processing power, but they're not in the same league as the 15-inch Air when it comes to endurance. As for AI, I think the Neural Engine inside the 15-inch MacBook Air has a lot of potential to make you more productive using a new wave of AI tools — especially when it comes to generative AI photo editing and creation. But the M3 is not that much of a leap over the M2 in this department.

96% 15-inch MacBook Air (M3) review: Simply the best, but better
Bron: Macworld.co.uk Engels EN→NL
The MacBook Air is a great laptop, especially for users who prioritize mobility. Thanks to Apple silicon, it can handle whatever task you need to do, whether it’s as simple as using a word processor while being online with a gazillion Safari tabs open, or a bit more complex with iMovie and GarageBand, or pro-level work with a video production tool or software development. If you are still(!) using an Intel MacBook, I enthusiastically encourage you to upgrade to an M-Series laptop. If you upgrade to the M3 MacBook Air, you’re going to love-love-love the performance and perhaps even kick yourself for waiting so long. I realize that some users are in a position where their dependence on Intel is based on tools that are an absolute necessity, but if you can find an alternative that’s M-series friendly, see what you can do to adopt it.

MacBook Air M3 | Buy or Skip?!
Bron: Tom's Guide Engels
The new 13- and 15-inch MacBook Air laptops have arrived with the latest Apple M3 processor. Not only are these notebooks the most powerful MacBook Airs yet, but they’re also the most affordable M3 MacBooks. As great as these devices are, however, you might not need one — especially if you own or price out the previous M2 models. Let’s look at reasons to buy or skip based on my MacBook Air M3 review.

100% Apple MacBook Air 15-inch (M3) review: Bigger, bolder, faster, better
Bron: Techradar Engels EN→NL
Sometimes I struggle to explain why someone might choose a larger, heavier MacBook Air 15-inch over the super-light and thin 13-inch version. It's an especially difficult conversation because, aside from size, there are no functional differences between the new Apple MacBook Air 15-inch (M3) and equally-new 13-inch M3 model – and while you're here you'll also want to check out our in-depth Apple MacBook Air 13-inch (M3) review. Aesthetically, they have the same design. MacBook Air left the wedge look behind a couple of years ago (and officially canceled it this year with the removal of the M1 MacBook Air) and now sports a flat and still pleasing slab look. Both MacBook Airs are made of recycled aluminum and an anodized midnight black finish that does a decent if imperfect job of repelling fingerprints (space black on the MacBook Pro hides the prints a little better).

80% Apple MacBook Air 15-Inch (2024, M3) Review
Bron: PC Mag Engels EN→NL
Apple’s second slash at its larger MacBook Air finds itself in a different environment than the first did during its 2023 launch. The Windows-loyal competition gets increasingly faster at catching up every year, and this year it appears to be nipping at Apple’s heels, thanks largely to Intel Core Ultra. The new 15-inch MacBook Air is still an excellent deal that scales well in price for more multitasking capability or storage space, but key rivals have proved to be competitive on performance and price, namely systems like the MSI Prestige 16 AI Evo. Of course, Apple’s go-to defenses against such comparisons are build quality and reliability, and those hold up here. However, this was a missed opportunity to shore up those defenses with some design tweaks, like an SD card reader or more USB ports, at the very least.

Commentaar

Apple M3 10-Core GPU: Een geïntegreerde grafische adapter, ontworpen door Apple, met 10 kernen. Deze iGPU is ingebouwd in de Apple M3 SoC; hij maakt gebruik van de unified memory architectuur en heeft ondersteuning voor nieuwe technologieën zoals mesh shading en ray tracing. In onze tests was de M3 GPU (10 cores) meestal 5% tot 20% sneller dan de 10-core M2 GPU, afhankelijk van de taak. Net als de rest van de Apple M3 chip, is de grafische adapter vervaardigd op een 3 nm TSMC proces (mogelijk N3B).

Deze grafische kaarten zouden alle huidige spellen moeten kunnen draaien, maar de meeste spellen zullen alleen met gemiddelde of lage detail instellingen en lage resoluties goed werken. Oudere of minder veeleisende spellen kunnen nog wel met goede grafische instellingen gespeeld worden.
