Amazingly thin. Amazingly full size.
The thinness of MacBook Air is stirring. But perhaps more impressive, there’s a full-size notebook encased in the 0.16 to 0.76 inch of sleek, sturdy anodised aluminium. The unibody design — formed from a single piece of aluminium — makes MacBook Air incredibly durable. And at just 3.0 pounds*, MacBook Air is more than portable. It’s with you everywhere you go.
A no-compromise display.
The moment you open the new MacBook Air, you’re greeted by instant full-screen brightness. And its slim design doesn’t compromise in size: the glossy 13.3-inch, widescreen LED-backlit MacBook Air display is the same viewable size as the screen on MacBook. The 1280 × 800 resolution gives you vibrant images and rich colours. And LED makes it more power efficient, which translates into longer battery life.
Full-size, full-feature keyboard.
The keyboard is full size with crisp keys. The keys are also backlit, making it easy to work in low-light settings such as airplanes and conference halls. A built-in ambient light sensor automatically adjusts keyboard illumination and display brightness for optimal visibility. And with the oversize Multi-Touch trackpad, it just keeps getting better for fingers.
A noticeable graphics boost.
With a new integrated graphics processor, MacBook Air changes the game and just about everything you do with it. The NVIDIA GeForce 9400M provides up to an amazing 4x performance boost over the original MacBook Air.1 Photos appear in iPhoto quickly. Transitions in Keynote are seamless. Games play more smoothly. And movie and video playback is better than ever before. No other ultraportable offers such amazing performance in such a slim design.
The brilliance of Multi-Touch.
MacBook Air includes a spacious trackpad with Multi-Touch technology. You can pinch, swipe, or rotate to zoom in on text, advance through a photo album, or adjust an image. Or try out the new four-finger swipe. With this gesture, you can navigate up and down for Expose modes or left and right to switch between applications.
A smart LED display.
The LED-backlit display provides instant full-screen brightness the moment you open MacBook Air. LED technology also makes the display more power efficient, which translates to longer battery life. And since this display is mercury and arsenic free, it’s as easy on the environment as it is on the eyes.
Thin is in the details.
The innovative now-you-see-it, now-you-don’t port hatch flips down to reveal (and closes to hide) all the ports you really need: a USB 2.0 port, a headphone jack, and a new Mini DisplayPort that supports DVI, Dual-Link DVI and VGA video output. The Mini DisplayPort connects to the new Apple LED Cinema Display, and it supports other displays up to 30 inches.
More room for everything.
The MacBook Air hard drive is now larger at 120GB. So there’s plenty of storage for work, play, and whatever else happens in between. Or choose a 128GB solid-state drive, which has no moving parts for enhanced durability.
The battery is slim. The performance isn’t.
Like everything on MacBook Air, the battery doesn’t compromise power for portability. You can access the web wirelessly for four and a half hours.
Faster is better.
MacBook Air performance is as impressive as its form, thanks to its 1.6GHz or 1.86GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor. This chip was custom-built to fit within the compact dimensions of MacBook Air. And now, it’s faster than ever. The new 1066MHz frontside bus, additional L2 cache (6MB total) and 2GB of faster DDR3 RAM provide plenty of speed and memory for working with your favourite applications.
Built-in iSight camera.
MacBook Air also includes a built-in iSight camera so smartly integrated, you hardly notice it’s there.
The iSight camera and iChat software make video chatting easy anywhere there’s a wireless network.
