Apple MacBook Air 13.3-Inch NetBook Laptop Intel Core i5 1.6GHz Processor 8GB RAM 128GB SSD Intel HD Graphics macOS MMGF2LL/A:
To say that the Air is svelte is all at once stating the obvious and understating the truth. At its thickest point the computer is only 0.68″ — it tapers down to 0.11″ at its thinnest.
The system is loaded with 128GB of flash storage rather than an old-fashioned hard drive. Flash storage doesn’t just give you a lighter, thinner computer. It also allows for impressive battery life — up to 12 hours of web browsing and 30 days of standby time.
At 13.3″ in size, the 16:10 display features a native resolution of 1440 x 900. It features a glossy finish and LED backlight technology for enhanced image quality and energy efficiency.
Computers in the MacBook Air’s weight class are most often classified in the “netbook” category. Netbooks typically feature less-than-full-size keyboards, cramped trackpads, and low-powered CPUs. Not so with the MacBook Air. This computer features a standard-size backlit chiclet keyboard, the same as on the larger computers in the MacBook line. It also has a large multi-touch glass trackpad, giving you full control over your computer — without sacrificing ergonomics.
The computer is powered by a dual-core 5th-gen, low-voltage Broadwell 1.6 GHz Intel Core i5 processor and has 8GB of 1600 MHz LPDDR3 RAM. Graphics are provided by integrated Intel HD Graphics 5000. The computer features all the amenities you expect on a Mac — a FaceTime HD webcam, dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi (also compatible with 802.11a/b/g/n), Bluetooth 4.0 and built-in stereo speakers.
The MacBook Air comes with a complete suite of digital creativity applications. iMovie will help you edit your home movies, iPhoto will organize digital photos, and GarageBand allows you to compose original music.
The Macbook Air also provides three apps to keep you productive. Pages allow you to make creative word documents. Numbers helps you make spreadsheets more visually insightful. Keynote allows you to create a powerful presentation, complete with animated charts, interactive tables with cinematic effects and transitions.
This MacBook Air comes preloaded with the user-friendly Mac OS X operating system. The Mac OS X features Time Machine backup, which automatically backs up system data to an external hard drive. It also features natural scrolling, the Launchpad application launcher and support for full screen applications.
The Auto Save feature on the MacBook Air ensures that you won’t lose data, even when you forget to save a file. The OS tracks different versions of your documents, so you can go back to a previous draft of a document with ease. AirDrop makes it easy to transmit files wirelessly between computers, even if there is no central Wi-Fi network available. The revamped Mail application takes full advantage of modern widescreen displays.
