Power to go. And keep going.

Underneath the sleek exterior, MacBook Air is packed with powerful components that give you smoother graphics, faster storage and all-round serious performance. Not to mention enough battery life to get you through the day. The result? A computer that’s as capable as it is portable.

Fourth-generation Intel Core processors with fast graphics.

Fifth-generation Intel Core i5 and i7 processors — based on the groundbreaking Broadwell ULT architecture — give MacBook Air the power you need to finish the task at hand. Whatever the task may be. The dual-core Intel Core i5 with Turbo Boost speeds up to 2.7GHz comes standard. Or you can choose the optional dual-core Intel Core i7 processor for 2.2GHz of processing power and Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.2GHz. In addition, these processors are much more power-efficient, which means you’re able to do all the things you love to do on a computer for longer than ever — up to nine hours between battery charges on the 11-inch MacBook Air and up to 12 hours on the 13-inch model.1 And with the Intel HD Graphics 6000 processor, you get fast graphics performance. So when you’re trying to level up in your favourite game — or taking on other graphics-intensive tasks — things move more smoothly and with greater detail.

Fast memory.

Up to 8GB RAM

MacBook Air features up to 8GB of superfast, power-efficient 1600MHz LPDDR3 memory. Combine that with powerful processors and fast flash storage and you get a notebook that can run more memory-intensive applications at the same time — without compromising performance.

High-speed Thunderbolt and USB 3.

A high-speed Thunderbolt 2 port and two USB 3 ports allow MacBook Air to transfer data at lightning-fast speeds and connect to displays like the Apple Thunderbolt Display. So with a few connections, you can turn a highly portable notebook into a highly versatile workstation.
