You’re looking at the Apple MacBook Air. You’ve probably heard of it before and it’s popular for several reasons. Take its design for example, it’s one of the thinnest and that makes it one of lightest laptops in the world. In fact, it weighs just 1.35kg. Its size and weight have no effect on its performance. The screen looks stunning and the whole thing is powered by an Intel Core i5 processor. You get 8GB of RAM but what?s more important, it comes with 128GB of solid-state storage. This has some considerable advantages. It doesn’t vibrate or make any noise, and it’s several times faster than traditional hard drives seen on other laptops. The trackpad allows use of gestures that work brilliantly with the Mac OS platform. Don?t fear though, you can install Windows on it if you want to. That?s not all, it has Thunderbolt and USB 3 support that makes transferring data to and from external drives and peripherals much faster. It’s not priced too high for what you get, so you should strongly consider it especially if you plan on using it for a long time.
Make big things happen. All day long.
MacBook Air lasts up to an incredible 12 hours between charges. So from your morning coffee to your evening commute, you can work unplugged. When it’s time to kick back and relax, you can get up to 12 hours of iTunes movie playback. And with up to 30 days of standby time, you can go away for weeks and pick up where you left off.
Thin. Light. Powerful. And ready for anything.
Whatever the task, fifth-generation Intel Core i5 and i7 processors with Intel HD Graphics 6000 are up to it. From editing photos to browsing the web, everything happens ultra-fast. And all that power is encased in an incredibly thin 1.7-centimetre unibody design that weighs only 1.35 kilos.
Thunderbolt 2 and USB 3.Make some powerful connections.
Connect your MacBook Air to your devices and displays with a Thunderbolt 2 port that’s twice as fast as the previous generation. But that’s not the whole story. MacBook Air also comes equipped with two USB 3 ports, so you can connect the latest USB 3 devices and all your USB 2 devices as well. With just a few connections, MacBook Air transforms from an ultra-portable notebook into a complete workstation.
Multi-Touch trackpad. It goes hand in hand with macOS.
The Multi-Touch gestures in macOS make everything you do on MacBook Air more intuitive, direct and fun. And the spacious Multi-Touch trackpad is perfectly designed for them, whether it’s a three-finger swipe to activate Mission Control or a four-finger pinch to see all your apps in Launchpad. Gesture responses are smooth and realistic. So when you’re scrolling up and down a web page or swiping from one full-screen app to another, it’s almost like you’re touching what you’re seeing.
Backlit keyboard. What you see is what you type.
As incredibly compact as MacBook Air is, it still manages to fit a full-sized keyboard that makes typing as natural as it is comfortable. And the keyboard is backlit, so you can type with ease in even the dimmest light. A built-in ambient light sensor detects changes in lighting conditions and adjusts the display and keyboard brightness automatically. From a seat in a sunny cafe to a seat on an overnight flight, you’ll always have the perfect lighting for any environment.
iCloud. Your content. On all your devices.
iCloud stores your content and lets you access your music, photos, calendars, contacts, documents and more from whatever device you’re on. So if you take a picture with your iPhone or make changes to your meeting schedule on your iPad, iCloud makes sure everything appears on your Mac too. And it works both ways – create a to-do list on your Mac and you can make edits to it on your iPhone.
LED-backlit display. Millions of pixels. Millimetres thin.
MacBook Air gives you 1440×900-pixel resolution on a display that’s just a mere 4.86 millimetres thin. And LED backlighting makes colours bright and vibrant from edge to edge. So whether you’re editing photos, perfecting a presentation or watching a movie, you’re going to love what you see.
FaceTime HD camera. Stay sharp.
Let your friends and family see more of you with the 720p FaceTime HD camera. Every smile looks bright, even halfway round the world. And the widescreen format means everyone can fit into the picture without having to crowd round the display.
Dual mics. They’ll hear you loud and clear.
The dual microphones in MacBook Air are great for when you want to be heard. If you’re making a FaceTime call, for example, the mics reduce background noise from behind the notebook. And when you use Dictation, they create an adaptive audio beam that intelligently adjusts to detect your voice – instead of the noise around you.
