Power to go.And keep going.
Underneath the sleek exterior, MacBook Air is packed with powerful components that give you smoother graphics, faster storage, and all-around serious performance. Not to mention enough battery life to get you through the day. The result? A computer that’s as capable as it is portable.
Fifth-generation Intel Core Processors with fast graphics.
Fifth-generation Intel Core i5 and i7 processors — based on the Broadwell ULT architecture — give MacBook Air the power you need to finish the task at hand. Whatever the task may be. The dual-core Intel Core i5 with Turbo Boost speeds up to 2.7GHz comes standard. Or you can choose the optional dual-core Intel Core i7 processor for 2.2GHz of processing power and Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.2GHz. In addition, these processors are much more power efficient, which means you’re able to do all the things you love to do on a computer for longer than ever — up to 12 hours between battery charges.1 And with the Intel HD Graphics 6000 processor, you get fast graphics performance. So when you’re trying to level up in your favorite game — or taking on other graphics-intensive tasks — things move more smoothly and with greater detail.
MacBook Air comes standard with 8GB of superfast, power‑efficient 1600MHz LPDDR3 memory. Combine that with powerful processors and fast flash storage and you get a notebook that can run more memory-intensive applications at the same time — without compromising performance.
Fast Flash Storage.
Up to 512GB.
From the moment you start up MacBook Air, you realize this is exactly how a notebook should perform. Much of that power is thanks to flash storage, which is up to 17x faster than a traditional 5400-rpm notebook hard drive.2 Apps launch quickly. Files and documents open faster. Even after a month in standby mode, MacBook Air springs to life.
High-speed Thunderbolt 2 and USB 3.
A high-speed Thunderbolt 2 port and two USB 3 ports allow MacBook Air to transfer data at lightning-fast speeds. So with a few connections, you can turn a highly portable notebook into a highly versatile workstation.
