Apple MacBook Air 2018
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 percent 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 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.
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 or authenticate a document, 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 help open apps, find documents, play music and answer your questions.
Keyboard. Redesigned from A to Z.
The latest-generation MacBook Air keyboard features Apple’s 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.Specifications
