The deeper you look, the more beautiful it becomes
Of course, MacBook Air is unbelievably thin and light. But it's 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 laptop 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 2cm and as little as 1.08kg. 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 per cent less, in fact. That creates room for other important things, like a bigger battery.
A battery that can get you through the day
When the goal is to design the perfect laptop 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 while surfing the web or up to 10 hours while watching iTunes films.
Now with Intel 5th Gen processing
Whatever the task may be. The powerful 5th Gen Intel Core i5 with Turbo Boost speeds up to 2.7GHz comes as standard. This processor is 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. And with the Intel HD Graphics 6000 processor, you get fast graphics performance. So when you’re trying to go up a level in your favourite game — or taking on other graphics-intensive tasks — things move more smoothly and with greater detail.
OS X 10.10 Yosemite. It’s what makes a Mac a Mac.
OS X is the operating system that powers every Mac. Built on a rock-solid UNIX foundation, it’s engineered to take full advantage of what the hardware is capable of. It’s designed to be as easy to use as it is beautiful to look at. It comes with an amazing collection of apps you’ll use — and love — every day. And it enables your Mac and iOS devices to work wonderfully together.
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. 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.
