With fifth-generation Intel core processors, Thunderbolt 2.0 connectivity and the same all-day battery life, the 2015 MacBook Air is thin, light, powerful and ready for anything. From editing photos to browsing the web, everything happens ultrafast. Flash storage in MacBook Air is up to 17x faster than a 5400-rpm notebook hard drive. So everything you do is snappy and responsive. And all that power is encased in an incredibly thin 0.68 unibody design that weighs only 2.38 pounds.
Fifth-genertation Intel core Processors
MacBook Air is powered by fifth-generation Intel Core processors. This ultra-efficient architecture was designed to use less power and still deliver high performance. Which means not only can you do whatever you want ” you can keep doing it for longer than before. In addition, the Intel HD Graphics 6000 processor offers advanced performance you™ll especially notice with games and other graphics-intensive tasks.
Fast All-Flash Storage
Part of what makes MacBook Air so responsive is that it™s designed entirely around flash storage. Not only does this make MacBook Air much lighter and more portable than traditional notebooks, it also provides faster access to data. Available in capacities up to 512GB, this PCIe-based flash storage is up to 17x faster than a traditional 5400-rpm notebook hard drive. So when you flip open MacBook Air, it™s ready to go right away. Even after a month in standby mode, the screen springs to life.
Thunderbolt 2 and USB 3
With a Thunderbolt 2 port that™s twice as fast as the previous generation, you can connect your MacBook Air to the latest devices and displays, like the Apple Thunderbolt Display. But that™s not the whole story. MacBook Air also comes equipped with two USB 3 ports, so you can connect the latest USB 3 devices and all your USB 2 devices as well. With just a few connections, MacBook Air transforms from an ultraportable notebook to a complete workstation.
Up to 12 Hours of Battery Life
Thanks to compact all-flash storage in MacBook Air, there™s plenty of room for a big battery. Working together with the power-efficient fifth-generation Intel Core architecture, this battery can post some impressive numbers. The 11 model gets up to 9 hours of battery life on a single charge and the 13 model gets up to 12 hours. That gives you all-day power for surfing the web or watching iTunes movies. Put MacBook Air to sleep for more than 3 hours, and it enters standby mode to conserve battery life for up to 30 days. And if you enable Power Nap, you™ll continue to receive new email and calendar invitations while your computer is asleep.
The Multi-Touch gestures in OS X make everything you do on MacBook Air more intuitive, direct, and fun. And the spacious Multi-Touch trackpad is perfectly designed for them, whether it™s a three-finger swipe to activate Mission Control or a four-finger pinch to see all your apps in Launchpad. Gesture responses are smooth and realistic. So when you'e scrolling up and down a web page or swiping from one full-screen app to another, it™s almost like you'e touching what you'e seeing.
As incredibly compact as MacBook Air is, it still manages to fit a full‘size keyboard that makes typing as natural as it is comfortable. And the keyboard is backlit, so you can type with ease in even the dimmest light. A built-in ambient light sensor detects changes in lighting conditions and adjusts the display and keyboard brightness automatically. From a seat in a sunny caf to a seat on a cross‘country red‘eye, you™ll always have the perfect lighting for any environment.
