Unbelievably thin and light, the new 11.6-inch Apple MacBook Air is a portable yet powerful portable computer. Running on Apple’s latest operating system, OS X Yosemite, the MacBook Air features a fifth generation Intel Core i5 processor and dedicated flash memory to ensure rapid performance. Made from lightweight aluminium, it features a whole host of great connectivity options, including USB 3.0 and a lighting fast Thunderbolt 2 port. Tough, slim and very portable - the MacBook Air is your perfect partner for work, rest or play.
Incredibly thin and light, MacBook Air 11-inch measures just 1.7cm at its deepest point and weighs an astonishing 1.08kg making it ideal to take with you. The amazing portability of this machine is helped by the 256GB flash storage. Flash storage doesn’t have any moving parts, which means it’s more reliable and quiet. Lightning fast, durable, silent — qualities that make sense in a laptop tasked with keeping up with you. Despite its size, MacBook Air packs a full-size keyboard that makes typing as natural as it is comfortable. It’s also backlit, so you can type with ease in even the dimmest light.
The fifth generation Intel Core i5 processor will handle whatever you throw at it, allowing you to multi-task and work on intensive applications without experiencing any lag. Applications run faster and more efficiently than before. So everything you normally do on a computer you can do even quicker. Send email, write reports, create presentations, touch up photos, edit home movies and all the little (and big) tasks in between. The i5 uses the Intel HD Graphics 6000 GPU to ensure visuals are smooth whether you’re playing a game, watching a video or editing a photo.
MacBook Air features a large battery that works with the power-efficient fifth generation Intel Core processor to last all day. You can expect up to 9 hours of battery life on a single charge when surfing the web or as much as 10 hours when watching films from iTunes. MacBook Air will also preserve its own battery life by entering standby mode after it’s been asleep for more than three hours, helping to conserve battery life for up to 30 days. You can even continue to receive new emails and calendar invitations while your MacBook’s asleep by enabling Power Nap.
With 802.11ac Wi-Fi you’ll be able to connect to an 802.11ac router and experience wireless performance that’s up to 3 times faster than previous generations. Bluetooth 4.0 will allow you to connect to Bluetooth enabled devices like speakers, headphones and other computers to stream and share files without wires. Two USB 3.0 ports will allow you to connect peripheral items such as mice, printers or USB storage devices, and transfer data 10 times faster than USB 2.0 with compatible devices. The Thunderbolt 2 port allows rapid transferring of files, so you’ll save time when trying to save large files in a hurry, delivering transfer speeds of up to 20 Gbps.
The screen on the MacBook Air is amazingly thin- just 4.86mm- but still manages to stand out, with a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels and LED backlighting ensuring that colours are bright and vibrant from edge to edge. The widescreen 720p FaceTime camera will let your friends and family see more of you in video calls and ensure that groups can fit into a picture without having to crowd around the display. The dual microphones reduce background noise from behind the mics, so your speech will be as clear as your face.
