The MacBook Air delivers a solid overall experience. Its battery life is good for a premium laptop, its bright crisp Retina display features Apples True Tone display technology and its gold colour looks smooth. For these reasons, the MacBook Air is one of the best 13 – inch laptops.
With a resolution of 2560-by-1600 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 the environment, making web pages and email look as natural as the printed page. The display glass goes right to the edge of the enclosure, which gives more focus to what appears on the screen.
The Apple MacBook Air is a heavy-duty performance laptop. Its quad-core Intel Core i5 processor delivers up to 2 times faster CPU performance and up to 80% faster graphics performance, to power through everything. Up to 8GB (16GB upgrade), LPDDR3 memory works seamlessly even with multiple apps open. The fast SSD storage starts at 256GB and can be configured with up to 2TB, providing plenty of room for more movies, music, photos, files, and games.
