    MACBOOK AIR 13-INCH - M1 CHIP - 8-CORE CPU / 8-CORE GPU - 8GB - 512GB - GOLD

    MacBook Air

    Power. It’s in the Air.

    Apple's thinnest, lightest notebook, completely transformed by the Apple M1 chip. With CPU speeds up to 3.5x faster and GPU speeds up to 5x faster. Apple's most advanced Neural Engine for up to 9x faster machine learning. The longest battery life ever in a MacBook Air. And a silent, fanless design. This much power has never been this ready to go.

    M1

    Small chip. Giant leap.

    It’s here. Apple's first chip designed specifically for Mac. Packed with an astonishing 16 billion transistors, the Apple M1 system on a chip (SoC) integrates the CPU, GPU, Neural Engine, I/O and so much more onto a single tiny chip. With incredible performance, custom technologies and industry-leading power efficiency, M1 is not just a next step for Mac — it’s another level entirely.

    CPU

    8-core CPU Devours tasks. Sips battery.

    M1 has the fastest CPU Apple have ever made. With that kind of processing speed, MacBook Air can take on new extraordinarily intensive tasks like professional-quality editing and action-packed gaming. But the 8‑core CPU on M1 isn‘t just up to 3.5x faster than the previous generation2 — it balances high-performance cores with efficiency cores that can still speed through everyday jobs while using just a tenth of the power.

    GPU

    8-core GPU Plays hard. Works wonders.

    The MacBook Air's 8-Core GPU gives you up to 5X faster graphics.

    MACHINE LEARNING

    Up to 9x faster. Even for a 16‑core Neural Engine, that’s a lot to process. Apps on MacBook Air can use machine learning (ML) to automatically retouch photos like a pro, make smart tools such as magic wands and audio filters more accurate at auto‑detection, and so much more. That’s not just brain power — that’s the power of a full stack of ML technologies.

    MACOS BIG SUR

    The power of macOS Big Sur on M1.

    Developed to unlock the potential of the M1 chip, macOS Big Sur transforms Mac with major performance benefits and so much more. Powerful updates for apps. A beautiful new design. Industry-leading privacy features and best‑in‑class security. It’s Apple's most powerful software ever — running on their most advanced hardware yet.

    SPEED AND RESPONSIVENESS

    More power. Wakes instantly.

    The M1 chip and macOS Big Sur work together to make the entire system snappier. MacBook Air wakes instantly from sleep. Everyday tasks from flipping through photos to browsing Safari are faster. And your hardest‑working apps all have access to the power they need.

    BIGGEST COLLECTION OF APPS EVER

    Run powerful apps built for M1. All your existing apps work thanks to Rosetta 2. And for the first time, you can use your favourite iPhone and iPad apps directly on macOS Big Sur. Altogether you’ll have access to the biggest collection of apps ever for Mac.

    UNIFIED MEMORY

    The do‑it‑all notebook gets do‑the‑unbelievable memory. The M1 chip brings superfast unified memory. This single pool of high‑bandwidth, low‑latency memory allows apps to share data between the CPU, GPU and Neural Engine efficiently — so everything you do is fast and fluid.

    STUNNING RETINA DISPLAY

    Lifelike colours for unreal beauty.

    Images take on new levels of detail and realism on the brilliant 13.3‑inch, 2560x1600-resolution Retina display. Text is sharp and clear. Colours are more vibrant than ever. And the glass goes right to the edge of the enclosure, so nothing takes away from your gorgeous view.

    P3 WIDE COLOUR GAMUT

    A wider palette of colours on display.

    25% more colours than sRGB.

    PIXEL DENSITY

    Razor sharp text clarity.

    TRUE TONE TECHNOLOGY

    Good looking. And easy on the eyes. MacBook Air automatically adjusts the white point of your display to the colour temperature of your environment for a more natural viewing experience.

    CAMERA AND MICS

    You’re live on the Air.

    The image signal processor in the M1 chip helps you look your best for every FaceTime call and video conference. Three built‑in microphones make sure what you say gets heard whether you’re on a call, dictating a note or asking Siri about the weather.

    FaceTime HD camera

    Get clearer, sharper images. See more detail in shadows and highlights. And face detection uses the Neural Engine to adjust white balance and exposure for even more natural-looking skin tones.

    Three-microphone array

    Say “Hello” to mics that focus on your voice instead of what’s going on around you.

    MAGIC KEYBOARD

    Get down to it. Write away.

    When a keyboard types like a dream and still does a whole lot more: that’s magic. With new pre-programmed shortcuts, useful features are even easier to access. Get help from Siri, switch keyboard languages, respond with the perfect emoji, find documents with Spotlight — there’s so much you can do with just a tap. And the backlit keys with ambient light sensor help you type in low‑light settings.

    Scissor mechanism

    The refined scissor mechanism delivers the best typing experience ever on a Mac notebook.

    Force Touch trackpad

    Precise control with plenty of room to swipe, pinch or zoom.

    TOUCH ID

    One touch is all it takes to lock or unlock MacBook Air. Use your fingerprint to rent a movie, buy an app, or access things like secure documents or system settings without having to re-enter your password. And when you shop online with Apple Pay, Touch ID fills in your shipping and billing information without sharing your card details.

    CONNECTIVITY

    Charges, chats, streams, works and plays well with others.

    Wi‑Fi 6

    The next generation of Wi‑Fi isn’t just faster — it keeps MacBook Air going strong even as more and more devices join the network.

    Thunderbolt / USB 4

    Ultra‑high bandwidth meets ultra‑versatility. Thunderbolt enables data transfer, charging and video output all through a single port — and MacBook Air has two of them.
