  • 8GB of high-performance 1.1GHz dual-core Intel Core i3 3733MHz memory, with Turbo Boost up to 3.2GHz and a 4MB L3 cache, lets you work seamlessly even with multiple apps open
  • The fast SSD storage starts at 256GB--double the capacity of the previous standard configuration, providing plenty of room for all your movies, music, photos, files, and games
  • Featuring a brilliant Retina display with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 for over 4 million pixels, images take on a new level of detail and realism, text is sharp and clear, and with millions of colours, everything you see is rich and vibrant.
  • True Tone technology automatically adjusts the white point of the display to match the colour temperature of your environment, making web pages and emails look as natural as the printed page
  • The display glass goes right to the edge of the enclosure, so you can focus on what’s on your screen
  • Wi-Fi (802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n compatible) and Bluetooth 5.0 wireless technology give you the power to connect wirelessly with ease
  • With all-day battery life, the built-in 49.9Wh lithium‑polymer battery gives you up to 11 hours of wireless web, up to 12 hours of Apple TV app movie playback, or up to 30 days of standby time
  • Incredibly thin and light, it packs heavy-duty performance into just 1.29kg (2.8lb.)
  • 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 40Gb/s of throughput for twice the bandwidth of Thunderbolt 2; existing devices are easily connected with a cable or adapter (sold separately). And Thunderbolt 3 is reversible, so no matter how you plug it in, it’s always right side up
  • The new Magic Keyboard, first seen on the 16-inch MacBook Pro, has a refined scissor mechanism with 1mm of travel that delivers a responsive, comfortable and quiet typing experience
  • Inverted-T arrow keys help you fly through lines of code, spreadsheets or game environments
  • Backlit keys with ambient light sensor help you type in low-light settings
  • The Force Touch trackpad lets you interact with your Mac in a variety of ways based on subtle differences in pressure, so 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
  • The advanced security and convenience of Touch ID means you can simply place your finger on the Touch ID sensor and your Mac unlocks 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 without needing to enter shipping or billing info, and your card details are never shared
  • The Apple T2 Security Chip is a second-generation custom Mac silicon designed by Apple to make MacBook Air even more secure with on-the-fly data encryption, which means all your data stored on the SSD is automatically and fully encrypted
  • Hey Siri is always ready to open apps, find documents, play music, and answer your questions
  • Stereo speakers deliver twice the bass and 25% more volume, while wider stereo sound creates immersive audio when you’re listening to music or watching a movie
  • The FaceTime camera lets your friends and family members see you in high definition, while 3 microphones form an array that more accurately captures your voice for FaceTime calls, dictation, and talking to Siri
  • Sidecar lets you use your iPad (sold separately) as a second Mac display
  • Every Mac comes equipped with a collection of powerful creativity and productivity apps, with dedicated apps for music, TV and podcasts, and smart new features in the apps you use every day

    Reviewed by  - December 14, 2020

    I had a macbook air 2010 i bought for 350$ used. Buying this one was the biggest purchase I ever made. It's worth it tho. Because the keyboard is awesome and smooth - Image is very crispy and great quality ! Speaker very good and camera is still 720 but then again depends what you use it for. It's an experience MacBook. I love mine. Use it to make more money ! I trade foreign exchange pairs using the MacBook so just make sure you buy it to PRODUCE INCOME. Not just think u're cool with it

  • This computer is great, only if you need it though
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Sarah - August 29, 2020

    I bought this computer on a whim because when I was younger I had always dreamed of a MacBook. The display is gorgeous and I watch a lot of shows on it and edit some videos here and there. I got the 256 gb one so the cheapest, it does run out of space quick if you’re planning on playing games on this (which I wouldn’t recommend.) personally this computer is perfect for school and most likely work. I have a PC that is meant for gaming but it’s nice to take something this small with me places. It has just the right amount of weight but I do say it is pretty thin so I HIGHLY recommend a case. This also comes with a year warranty which is a plus.
