The deeper you look, the more beautiful it becomes.

Sure, MacBook Air is unbelievably thin and light. But we also designed it to be powerful, capable, durable, and enjoyable to use. With enough battery life to get you through the day. That’s the difference between a notebook that’s simply thin and light and one that’s so much more.

Thin, light, durable.Thank you, flash storage.

Flash storage helps make MacBook Air incredibly thin and light — under an inch and as little as 2.38 pounds.1 Flash is also solid state, meaning there are no moving parts. Which makes it reliable, durable, and quiet. And it takes up much less space than a traditional hard drive — about 90 percent less, in fact. That creates room for other important things, like a bigger battery. So you have a notebook that weighs almost nothing and runs all day long. Now that’s mobility mastered.

The best way to Multi-Touch on a notebook.

Multi-Touch technology is part of practically every Apple product. It’s the best and most personal way to interact with your devices. And the optimal way to experience Multi-Touch on a notebook is through a trackpad. That’s precisely the case with MacBook Air. The trackpad’s spacious, all-glass surface doesn’t have a button because the whole thing is the button. And with Multi-Touch gestures in OS X, you can interact with MacBook Air in ways that feel more intuitive and realistic than ever before.

Anyone can try to make a notebook that’s thin and light. Success comes in doing it without cutting corners. That’s why MacBook Air features a full-size keyboard that’s just as comfortable to type on as a desktop keyboard. And the keyboard is backlit, so you can type in low-light conditions with ease. A built-in sensor detects changes in the ambient lighting and adjusts the keyboard and display brightness automatically, giving you the perfect illumination in any environment.

A battery that can get you through the day. And the month.

If you looked inside MacBook Air, you’d see something remarkable: how much space we devoted to the battery. That’s thanks to smaller components such as flash storage. And when the goal is to design the perfect notebook for everyday use, giving priority to the battery just makes sense. With the 11-inch MacBook Air, you’ll get up to 9 hours of battery life — or up to 8 hours when watching iTunes movies. And the 13-inch model lasts up to a staggering 12 hours — or up to 10 hours of iTunes movie playback.2 Put MacBook Air to sleep for more than 3 hours, and it enters standby mode. That means you can come back to MacBook Air up to an entire month later and it wakes in an instant. Time is on your side, courtesy of MacBook Air.

  1. Weight varies by configuration and manufacturing process.
  2. Testing conducted by Apple in May 2013 using preproduction 1.3GHz dual-core Intel Core i5-based 13-inch MacBook Air units and preproduction 1.3GHz dual-core Intel Core i5-based 11-inch MacBook Air units. The wireless web test measures battery life by wirelessly browsing 25 popular websites with display brightness set to 12 clicks from bottom or 75%. The HD movie playback test measures battery life by playing back HD 720p content with display brightness set to 12 clicks from bottom or 75%. The standby test measures battery life by allowing a system, connected to a wireless network, to enter standby mode with Safari and Mail applications launched and all system settings left at default. Battery life varies by use and configuration. See www.apple.com/lae/batteries for more information.
