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 with True Tone technology, 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 a resolution of 2560x1600 for over 4 million pixels, the results are positively jaw-dropping. Images take on a new level of detail and realism. Text is sharp and clear. And True Tone technology automatically adjusts the white point of the display to match the colour temperature of your environment â making web pages and email look as natural as the printed page. With 48 per cent 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 per cent thinner than before. So you can focus on whats on your screen. And youre going to love what you see.
Touch ID. Your fingerprint is your password.
The advanced security and convenience of Touch ID are now built directly into MacBook Air. Simply place your finger on the Touch ID sensor and â just like that â 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 â select Apple Pay at checkout, and with just one touch youre done. No need to enter shipping or billing info, and your card details are never shared. With Touch ID, your private information stays private.
