M2 MacBook Air teardown casts doubt on cooling and reveals a mysterious component

Apple’s MacBook Air (M2, 2022) received the disassembly treatment by iFixit (opens in new tab)with some interesting revelations about the cooling solution for the notebook, and a mysterious addition to the component mix as well.

The discovery included some things we already knew, courtesy of YouTuber Max Tech who has already dug into the laptop’s innards. 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 Air’s pair of 128GB NAND chips (M1), and that’s a little disappointing (although expected, as this is the route Apple took with the base model of the M2 MacBook Pro).
