Apple MacBook Air (MREF2X/A) with Retina Display – 13.3″, 256GB SSD, Gold
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 all the way 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.
Touch ID Your fingerprint is your password.
The advanced security and convenience of Touch ID are now built 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 on participating websites in Safari, 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.
Apple T2 Security Chip
MacBook Air features the Apple T2 Security Chip — second-generation custom‑engineered 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.
Your all‑purpose, all‑day notebook.
Even though it weighs just 1.25 kilograms, 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
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
The first Mac made with 100 per cent 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.
