The new thinner and lighter MacBook Air features a brilliant Retina display, the security and convenience of Touch ID, the latest‑generation keyboard, and a Force Touch trackpad. And with an enclosure made with 100 percent recycled aluminum, it’s the greenest Mac ever. MacBook Air is your perfectly portable, do‑it‑all notebook.
What’s the new with it?
- Retina Display: Four million pixels.
With four times as many pixels as an HD display, 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 percent more colors than the previous generation, everything you see is rich and vibrant. The display glass goes right to the edge of the enclosure, making the borders 50 percent 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 right 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. With Touch ID, your private information stays private.
- 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.
- Performance: Your all‑purpose, all‑day notebook.
Even though it weighs just 2.75 pounds, the new MacBook Air packs quite a punch. 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.
- 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 percent more volume than the previous generation.
- Materials: The first Mac made with 100% recycled aluminum.
An aluminum alloy created by Apple that delivers the same strength, durability, and flawless finish — without mining any new aluminum from the earth. It’s the greenest Mac ever created.
