The thin and light notebook, at the height of its power.

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.

Fourth-generation Intel Core i5 and i7 processors — based on the groundbreaking Haswell 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 as standard. Or you can choose the optional dual-core Intel Core i7 processor for 1.7GHz of processing power and Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.3GHz. 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 9 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 5000 processor, you get advanced graphics performance.2 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 super-fast, 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 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.
