Light. Speed.

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.2 And with all-day battery life, our most popular Mac is your perfectly portable do-it-all notebook.

 

Retina Display
Four million pixels.
One immersive experience.

With a resolution of 2560 by 1600 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. The display glass goes all the way to the edge of the enclosure, so you can focus on what’s on your screen. And you’re going to love what you see.

Performance

Works hard.
Travels light.

MacBook Air packs heavy-duty performance into just 1.29 kilograms. The available quad-core Intel Core i7 processor delivers up to two times 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. The fast SSD storage starts at 256GB — double the capacity of the previous standard configuration. And it can be configured with up to 2TB, providing plenty of room for all your movies, music, photos, files and games.Up to2×faster CPU performance

Keyboard Feel the Magic.

MacBook Air now features the new Magic Keyboard, first seen on the 16‑inch MacBook Pro. The refined scissor mechanism with 1 millimetre 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.

Force Touch Trackpad

The Force Touch trackpad is one of the best in the world. It lets you interact with your Mac in a variety of ways based on subtle differences in pressure. You have precise control and a uniform response — no matter where you click the trackpad — as well as plenty of room for Multi-Touch gestures like pinch and zoom. Your fingers will feel right at home.

Touch ID Your fingerprint is your password.

The advanced security and convenience of Touch ID are built 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 on participating websites in Safari, 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.

Quickly unlock your Mac without typing a password

Securely make online purchases with Apple Pay

Instantly authenticate password-protected documents

 

Apple T2 Security Chip

MacBook Air features the Apple T2 Security Chip — our second-generation custom-engineered Mac silicon designed 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. And thanks to the T2 Security Chip, MacBook Air features a familiar voice — Hey Siri is always ready to open apps, find documents, play music and answer your questions.

 

Speakers and Camera Sound that speaks volumes.

With the latest in processing and tuning techniques, MacBook Air sounds better than ever. Stereo speakers deliver twice the bass and 25 per cent more volume. And wider stereo sound creates immersive audio when you’re listening to music or watching a movie. The FaceTime camera lets one — or many — of your friends and family members see you in high definition. And three microphones form an array that more accurately captures your voice for FaceTime calls, dictation and talking to Siri.

  • 2 × more bass
  • 25more volume
  • Three-microphone array captures your voice more accurately
  • FaceTime HD camera for one‑to‑one and group calls

 

Thunderbolt 3 One for all, all in one.

Thunderbolt 3 combines ultra-high bandwidth with the remarkable 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 40 Gbps 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.

Materials Made with 100 per cent recycled aluminium.

MacBook Air is made with an aluminium alloy created by Apple that delivers the same strength, durability and flawless finish — without mining any new aluminium from the earth. It’s designed to use shavings of recaptured aluminium that are re‑engineered down to the atomic level. The result is an enclosure as incredibly beautiful and strong
as any we have made.
