The incredibly thin and light MacBook Air is now more powerful than ever. It features a brilliant Retina display, new Magic Keyboard, Touch ID, processors with up to twice the performance, faster graphics and double the storage capacity. The sleek wedge-shaped design is created from 100 per cent recycled aluminium, making it the greenest Mac ever. And with all-day battery life, our most popular Mac is your perfectly portable, do-it-all notebook.
Four million pixels. One immersive experience.
With a resolution of 2560x1600 for over 4 million pixels, the results are positively jaw-dropping. Images take on a new level of detail and realism. Text is sharp and clear. And True Tone technology automatically adjusts the white point of the display to match the colour temperature of your environment — making web pages and email look as natural as the printed page. With millions of colours, everything you see is rich and vibrant.
Works hard. Travels light.
MacBook Air packs heavy-duty performance into just 1.29 kilos. The available quad-core Intel Core i7 processor delivers up to 2x faster CPU performance and up to 80 per cent faster graphics performance, to help you power through everything from browsing the web to playing games to editing video. Up to 16GB of high-performance 3733MHz memory lets you work seamlessly even with multiple apps open.
Feel the Magic.
MacBook Air now features the new Magic Keyboard, first seen on the 16-inch MacBook Pro. The refined scissor mechanism with 1mm of travel delivers a responsive, comfortable and quiet typing experience. The inverted “T” arrow keys help you fly through lines of code, spreadsheets or game environments. And the backlit keys with ambient light sensor help you type in low-light settings.
Your fingerprint is your password.
The advanced security and convenience of Touch ID are built directly into MacBook Air. Simply place your finger on the Touch ID sensor and — just like that — your Mac unlocks. Use your fingerprint to immediately access locked documents, notes and system settings, without entering yet another password. Online shopping is even easier — select Apple Pay at checkout, and with just one touch you’re done. No need to enter shipping or billing info, and your card details are never shared. With Touch ID, your private information stays private.
Apple T2 Security Chip
MacBook Air features the Apple T2 Security Chip — second-generation custom Mac silicon designed by Apple to make MacBook Air even more secure. So when you use Touch ID to unlock your Mac, authenticate a document or pay a merchant online, your information stays safe. With on-the-fly data encryption, all your data stored on the SSD is automatically and fully encrypted.
One for all, all in one.
Thunderbolt 3 combines ultra-high bandwidth with the ultra-versatility of the USB?C industry standard to create one revved-up universal port — and MacBook Air has two of them. Thunderbolt 3 integrates data transfer, charging and video output in a single connector, delivering up to 40Gb/s of throughput for twice the bandwidth of Thunderbolt 2. Existing devices are easily connected with a cable or adapter. And Thunderbolt 3 is reversible, so no matter how you plug it in, it’s always the right way up.
