Sure, MacBook Air is unbelievably thin and light. But we also designed it to be powerful, capable, durable, and enjoyable to use. With enough battery life to get you through the day. That’s the difference between a notebook that’s simply thin and light and one that’s so much more. Whatever the task, new fifth-generation Intel Core i5 and i7 processors with Intel HD Graphics 6000 are up to it. From editing photos to browsing the web, everything happens ultrafast. And all that power is encased in an incredibly thin 0.68-inch unibody design that weighs only 2.38 pounds.
