M2 MacBook Air teardown casts doubt on cooling, reveals mysterious component

Apple’s MacBook Air (M2, 2022) has received the disassembly processing by iFixit (opens in a new tab)along with some interesting reveals about the cooling solution for the laptop, and a mysterious addition to the component mix, too.

Discovery included some things we already knew, courtesy of YouTuber Max Tech having already delved into in the bowels of the laptop. Namely that the new base model MacBook Air has its SSD configured as a single 256GB NAND flash chip, which makes it slower than the previous (M1) Air pair of 128GB NAND chips, and that’s a little disappointing (although expected, as this is the route Apple opted for the entry-level model of the MacBook Pro M2).
