With the new MacBook, Apple set out to do the impossible: engineer a full-size experience into the lightest and most compact Mac notebook ever. That meant reimagining every element to make it not only lighter and thinner but also better. The result is more than just a new notebook. It’s the future of the notebook.
Up to 12-hours of battery life
The 11-inch MacBook Air lasts up to 9 hours between charges and the 13-inch model lasts up to an incredible 12 hours. So from your morning coffee till your evening commute, you can work unplugged. When it’s time to kick back and relax, you can get up to 10 hours of iTunes movie playback on the 11-inch model and up to 12 hours on the 13-inch model. And with up to 30 days of standby time, you can go away for weeks and pick up right where you left off.
Thin. Light. Powerful.
Whatever the task, new fifth-generation Intel Core i5 and i7 processors with Intel HD Graphics 6000 are up to it. From editing photos to browsing the web, everything happens ultrafast. And all that power is encased in an incredibly thin 1.7-centimetre unibody design that weighs only 1.08 kilograms.
The next generation of wireless
With the latest 802.11ac technology, MacBook Air takes Wi-Fi speeds over the top. Connect to an 802.11ac base station — including AirPort Extreme or AirPort Time Capsule — and experience wireless performance up to three times faster than the previous generation of Wi-Fi. 802.11ac also delivers expanded range, so you can work more freely than ever.
Fast all-flash storage.
Flash storage in MacBook Air is up to 17 times faster than a 5400-rpm notebook hard drive. So everything you do is snappy and responsive. MacBook Air even wakes up fast, thanks to flash storage and fifth-generation Intel Core processors.
Powerful apps included.
Every new Mac comes with iPhoto, iMovie, GarageBand, Pages, Numbers and Keynote. So you can be creative and productive right from the start. These apps have been updated to match the beautiful design of OS X Yosemite. You also get great apps for email, surﬁng the web, sending texts and making FaceTime calls — there’s even an app for ﬁnding new apps.
Easy to use, beautiful to look at and engineered to take full advantage of your Mac hardware, OS X El Capitan is the world’s most advanced desktop operating system. It comes with an amazing collection of apps for the things you do every day. With OS X El Capitan, it’s simple to do amazing things and delightful to do all the everyday things. And it works seamlessly with your apps and iOS devices.
