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 so sharp and clear you’ll feel like you’re reading documents, email and websites on a printed page.
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 — just like that — your Mac unlocks.
Keyboard. Redesigned from A to Z.
The latest-generation MacBook Air keyboard features our butterfly mechanism — providing four times more key stability than a traditional scissor mechanism, along with greater comfort and responsiveness. And individual LED-backlit keys with an ambient light sensor help you type in low-light environments.
Thunderbolt 3. One for all, all in one.
Thunderbolt 3 combines ultra-high bandwidth with the ultra-versatility of the USB‑C industry standard to create one revved-up universal port — and MacBook Air has two of them. Thunderbolt 3 integrates data transfer, charging and video output in a single connector, delivering up to 40 Gbps of throughput for twice the bandwidth of Thunderbolt 2. Materials
The first Mac made with 100% recycled aluminium.
