PRODUCT OVERVIEW -

Overview

Features

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 all-day battery life, MacBook Air is your perfectly portable, do-it-all notebook.

Retina Display

Four million pixels. One brilliant debut.

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 per cent more colours 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 per cent thinner than before. So you can focus on what’s on your screen. And you’re going to love what you see.

  • 13.3” high-resolution Retina display
  • 48% more colours than previous generation
  • Razor-sharp text clarity

Touch ID

Your fingerprint is your password.

The advanced security and convenience of Touch ID are now 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.

  • 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 — 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. And thanks to the T2 Security Chip, a familiar voice comes to MacBook Air — Hey Siri is always ready to open apps, find documents, play music and answer your questions.

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.

Force Touch Trackpad

The Force Touch trackpad 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.

Performance

Your all-purpose, all-day notebook.

Even though it weighs just 1.25 kilos, 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.

  • Up to 16GB memory
  • Up to 1.5TB SSD storage
  • Eighth-generation Intel Core i5 processor
  • Latest wireless technologies with 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.2
  • 1.25kg light
  • 15.6mm thin

Battery Life

With up to 12 hours of battery life, MacBook Air is your day-in, day-out dynamo. Check email, browse the web, shop online, write documents, watch videos, manage spreadsheets and more, all without plugging in. Taking a transatlantic flight? Line up the films, because MacBook Air is ready to play for up to 13 hours — non-stop.2

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.

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 than the previous generation. And wider stereo sound creates immersive audio when you’re listening to music or watching a film. The high-definition FaceTime camera lets one — or many — of your friends and family see you in sharp detail. And three microphones form an array that more accurately captures your voice for FaceTime calls, dictation and talking to Siri.

  • 2x more bass for fuller sound with greater range
  • 25% more volume than previous generation
  • Three-microphone array captures your voice more accurately
  • FaceTime HD camera for one-to-one and group calls

Materials

The first Mac made with 100% recycled aluminium.

Introducing 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, and the greenest Mac ever created.1

  • 47% lower carbon emissions compared with previous generation3
  • 6000 series aluminium for strength and durability

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 do 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.
