'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.

Apple MacBook Air M2

Apple's 2023 MacBook Air M2 is currently $300 at Best Buy. 

June Wan/ZDNET

Apple's 2023 MacBook Air with M2 chip is one of ZDNET's picks for best laptops, and is ZDNET reviews editor June Wan's most-recommended laptop thanks to its combination of portability, performance, and price. The latter is even better right now -- ahead of Presidents' Day you can buy the 15-inch MacBook Air for $999 at Best Buy, a discount $30 more than what we saw during Cyber Monday. 

The 2023 MacBook Air M2 features a sleek and modern design and MagSafe charging, along with a six-speaker sound system, two USB-C/Thunderbolt ports, and an 18-hour battery life. It weighs just over 3 pounds, making it one of the lighter laptops of its size.
