Portable & Powerful
Unbelievably thin and light, the new 11.6-inch Apple MacBook Air is a portable yet powerful portable computer. Running on Apple’s latest operating system, OS X Mavericks, the MacBook Air features a fourth generation Intel Core i5 processor and dedicated flash memory to ensure rapid performance. Made from lightweight aluminium, it features a whole host of great connectivity options, including USB 3.0 and a lighting fast Thunderbolt port. Tough, slim and very portable - the MacBook Air is your perfect partner for work, rest or play.
Thin, Light and Durable
Incredibly thin and light, MacBook Air 13-inch measures just 1.7cm at its deepest point and weighs an astonishing 1.35kg making it ideal to take with you. The amazing portability of this machine is helped by the 128GB flash storage. Flash storage doesn’t have any moving parts, which means it’s more reliable and quiet. Lightning fast, durable, silent — qualities that make sense in a laptop tasked with keeping up with you. Despite its size, MacBook Air packs a full-size keyboard that makes typing as natural as it is comfortable. It’s also backlit, so you can type with ease in even the dimmest light.
Fourth Generation Intel Core i5
The fourth generation Intel Core i5 processor will handle whatever you throw at it, allowing you to multi-task and work on intensive applications without experiencing any lag. Applications run faster and more efficiently than before. So everything you normally do on a computer you can do even quicker. Send email, write reports, create presentations, touch up photos, edit home movies and all the little (and big) tasks in between. The i5 uses the Intel HD Graphics 5000 GPU to ensure visuals are smooth whether you’re playing a game, watching a video or editing a photo.
Two USB 3.0 ports will allow you to connect peripheral items such as mice, printers or USB storage devices, and transfer data 10 times faster than USB 2.0 with compatible devices. The Thunderbolt port allows rapid transferring of files, so you’ll save time when trying to save large files in a hurry. With two 10-Gbps data channels, Thunderbolt lets you transfer data at rates up to 12 times faster than FireWire 800 and up to 20 times faster than USB 2.0.
The screen on the MacBook Air is amazingly thin- just 4.86mm- but still manages to stand out, with a resolution of 1440 x 900 pixels and LED backlighting ensuring that colours are bright and vibrant from edge to edge. The widescreen 720p FaceTime camera will let your friends and family see more of you in video calls and ensure that groups can fit into a picture without having to crowd around the display. The dual microphones reduce background noise from behind the mics, so your speech will be as clear as your face.
