- Providing both portability and performance, the Gold Apple 13.3″ MacBook Air with Retina Display houses a 1.1 GHz 10th Gen Intel Core i5 Quad-Core processor, which can be boosted up to 3.5 GHz, and 8GB of 3733 MHz LPDDR4X RAM in its trademark thin and light unibody wedge design made from 100% recycled aluminum. For faster boot times and app launches, the MacBook Air utilizes a 512GB PCIe SSD. With over 4 million pixels, the 13.3″ Retina Display features a 2560 x 1600 screen resolution and a 16:10 aspect ratio for 227 pixels per inch (PPI). The display also features up to 48 percent more colour than the previous generation. With True Tone technology, the white balance automatically adjusts to match the colour temperature of the light around you for a more natural viewing experience. Integrated Iris Plus Graphics handles your graphical demands. For more graphical performance, the MacBook Air supports Thunderbolt 3-enabled external graphics processors, also known as eGPUs. This is because there are dual Thunderbolt 3 ports with DisplayPort support, allowing you to output up to a single 6K external display.
- The MacBook Air now also features the Force Touch Touchpad and the Magic Keyboard with a redesigned scissor mechanism, providing 1mm of key travel, and the inverted-“T” arrangement of the arrow keys, resulting in a comfortable yet accurate typing experience. The Touch ID sensor lets you quickly unlock your MacBook Air with just your fingerprint. You can also use Touch ID to make purchases over the web, thanks to Apple Pay. Touch ID works with the Apple T2 chip, providing on-the-fly data encryption for everything stored on the SSD as well as “Hey Siri” functionality. Since the MacBook Air makes it easy to travel with, you’ll be using it in a variety of environments with different lighting conditions. The backlit Magic Keyboard has an ambient light sensor so it adjusts to your environment, conserving battery life. Speaking of battery life, the MacBook Air provides up to 11 hours of wireless web browsing and up to 30 days of standby time, thanks to its built-in 49.9 Wh lithium-polymer battery. When it’s time to recharge, you can plug in the 30W power adapter into its Thunderbolt 3 (USB Type-C) port. Connect to the internet via Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac) and use Bluetooth 5.0 to connect peripherals and accessories wirelessly.
