Lightness strikes again.
The most loved Mac is about to make you fall in love all over again. Available in silver, space grey and gold, the new thinner and lighter MacBook Air features a brilliant Retina display, Touch ID, the latest-generation keyboard and a Force Touch trackpad. The iconic wedge is created from 100 per cent recycled aluminium, making it the greenest Mac ever.1 And with an all-day battery life, MacBook Air is your perfectly portable do-it-all notebook.
Retina Display Four million pixels.One brilliant debut.
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 so sharp and clear you’ll feel like you’re reading documents, email and websites on a printed page. And with 48 per cent more colours than the previous generation, everything you see is rich and vibrant. The display glass goes all the way to the edge of the enclosure, making the borders 50 per cent thinner than before. So you can focus on what’s on your screen. And you’re going to love what you see.
Touch ID. Your fingerprint is your password.
The advanced security and convenience of Touch ID are now 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
Keyboard Redesigned from A to Z.
The latest-generation MacBook Air keyboard features our butterfly mechanism — providing four times more key stability than a traditional scissor mechanism, along with greater comfort and responsiveness. And individual LED-backlit keys with an ambient light sensor help you type in low‑light environments.
Performance Your all‑purpose, all‑day notebook.
Even though it weighs just 1.25 kilograms, the new MacBook Air packs quite a punch. An eighth-generation Intel Core i5 processor helps you power through daily activities, from reading email and browsing the web to creating Keynote presentations and editing in iMovie. Up to 16GB of memory lets you work seamlessly even with multiple apps open, while up to 1.5TB of SSD storage lets you launch apps in a flash and provides plenty of room for all your documents, photos and videos.
Thunderbolt 3 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 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.
macOS Simply powerful.
macOS is the operating system that powers everything you do on a Mac. It lets you do things you simply can’t with other computers. That’s because it’s designed specifically for the hardware it runs on — and vice versa. And macOS Mojave brings new features inspired by its most powerful users, but designed for everyone.
