The MacBook Air features fifth-generation Intel Core processors with stunning graphics, ultrafast flash storage, great built-in apps, and all-day battery life.* It's thin, light, and durable enough to take everywhere you go — and powerful enough to do everything once you get there.
This 13.3-inch model of the MacBook Air (Z0UU1LL/A) sports up to 12 hours of battery life, a 2.2 GHz Intel Core i7 dual-core processor (with a Turbo Boost of up to 3.2 GHz), 512 GB of flash memory storage, and 8 GB of RAM (see full specifications below). It also includes both a high-speed Thunderbolt port and two USB 3 ports, enabling you to easily connect to external displays and a wide variety of high performance peripherals.
The MacBook Air is powered by OS X, the world's most advanced operating system and built to bring out the best in your Mac.
Up to 12 Hours of Battery Life
Power through your whole work day with the 13-inch MacBook Air, which delivers up to 12 hours of battery life — more time power for word processing, presentations, email, and more. The increase is due to a larger battery (thanks to the compact all-flash storage in the MacBook Air) and the new power-efficient Intel Core processor architecture. Put the MacBook Air to sleep for more than 3 hours, and it enters standby mode to conserve battery life for up to 30 days.
The MacBook Air supports ultrafast 802.11ac Wi-Fi. When connected to an 802.11ac base station — including the new AirPort Extreme and AirPort Time Capsule — wireless performance is up to three times faster than with the previous generation of MacBook Air. And your Wi-Fi range improves as well.
Flash Memory Storage
By replacing the standard spinning hard drive typically found in laptops (as well as desktop PCs) with flash memory, the MacBook Air delivers an almost instantaneous boot-up when you open the display, as well as faster application launches and snappier overall performance. Additionally, Apple has shed the enclosure that typically surrounds flash memory (usually about the same size as a standard hard drive), thus giving it a smaller footprint and helping to decrease the size of the MacBook Air.
Fourth-Generation Intel Core i5 Dual-Core Processing
The ultra-efficient architecture of the fourth-generation Intel Core i5 processor was designed to use less power and still deliver high performance. It has a 1.4 GHz speed, which can dynamically accelerate up to 2.7 GHz to match your workload thanks to updated Intel Turbo Boost Technology.
And with the Intel HD Graphics 6000 processor, you get up to 40 percent faster graphics — performance you'll especially notice with games and other graphics-intensive tasks.
Thunderbolt 2 and USB 3
Delivering an amazing 20 gigabits per second of transfer speeds in both directions, the ultrafast and ultraflexible Thunderbolt port allows you to move data up to 20 times faster than with USB 2.0 and more than 12 times faster than with FireWire 800. You can also daisy-chain up to six Thunderbolt-compatible peripherals without using a hub. Thunderbolt also supports DisplayPort for high resolution displays and works with existing adapters for HDMI, DVI, and VGA displays.
The MacBook Air also comes with two USB 3 ports, enabling you to connect your external hard drive and transfer large files in seconds instead of minutes with speeds up to 10 times faster than USB 2. And you can connect all your USB-compatible devices, including your iPhone, iPad, iPod, or digital camera.
Integrated HD FaceTime Webcam
You'll be able to easily connect with friends, family, and business colleagues using the MacBook Air's HD 720p FaceTime camera, which is integrated into the thin bezel above the display and features three times the resolution of the previous FaceTime camera. And with Apple's FaceTime application, you're not limited to video chats with other Macs — you can now make video calls to iPhone and iPod touch users.
