Apple MacBook Air overview

  • 1Description
Found in: Work Laptops

Featuring a thin and lightweight design, the silver mid 2017 Apple 13.3" MacBook Air features a unibody aluminum enclosure that weighs less than 3 pounds. At its thickest point, the computer is only 0.68" -- it tapers down to 0.11" at its thinnest.

At 13.3" in size, the 16:10 display features a screen resolution of 1440 x 900. It features a glossy finish and LED backlight technology for enhanced image quality and energy efficiency.

The system is loaded with 128GB of flash storage rather than an old-fashioned hard drive. Flash storage doesn't just give you a lighter, thinner computer. It also allows for impressive battery life -- up to 12 hours of web browsing and 30 days of standby time.

The computer is powered by a 1.8 GHz Intel Core i5 dual-core processor and has 8GB of 1600 MHz LPDDR3 RAM. Graphics are provided by integrated Intel HD Graphics 6000. The computer features all the amenities you expect on a Mac -- a 720p FaceTime HD webcam, dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi (also compatible with 802.11a/b/g/n), Bluetooth 4.0, and built-in stereo speakers. macOS Sierra is the installed operating system.

Please note that this Mac may come with an earlier version of macOS. You can upgrade to the latest version through the Mac App Store app.

All-Day Battery
Working together with the power-efficient Intel Core architecture, the MacBook Air gets up to 12 hours of battery life on a single charge (may vary depending on use). 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.
Processor and Graphics
The MacBook Air is powered by an Intel Core i5 dual-core processor. 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 integrated Intel HD Graphics 6000 offers advanced performance you'll especially notice with games and other graphics-intensive tasks.
802.11ac Wi-Fi
MacBook Air supports dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi. When connected to an 802.11ac base station - including AirPort Extreme and AirPort Time Capsule - wireless performance is up to three times faster than 802.11n Wi-Fi. And your Wi-Fi range improves as well. With Bluetooth technology, you can connect the MacBook Air to Bluetooth-enabled devices, like speakers and headphones.
SSD Storage
Part of what makes the MacBook Air so responsive is that it's designed entirely around SSD storage. Not only does this make MacBook Air much lighter and more portable than traditional notebooks, it also provides faster access to data. The 128GB PCIe-based SSD storage is up to 17 times faster than a traditional 5400 rpm notebook hard disk drive.
Thunderbolt 2 & USB 3.0
Connect your MacBook Air to your devices and displays with a Thunderbolt 2 port that's twice as fast as the previous generation. MacBook Air also comes equipped with two USB 3.0 ports, so you can connect to USB 3.0 devices and all your USB 2.0 devices as well.
Display
The MacBook Air gives you a 1440 x 900 screen resolution on a 13.3" display that measures a mere 0.19" thin. And LED backlighting makes colors bright and vibrant from edge to edge.
FaceTime HD Camera
Let your friends and family see more of you with the 720p FaceTime HD camera. And the widescreen format means everyone can fit into the picture without having to crowd around the display.
Dual Mics
If you're making a FaceTime call, the dual mics reduce background noise from behind the notebook. And when you use Dictation, they create an adaptive audio beam that intelligently adjusts to detect your voice - instead of the noise around you.
Multi-Touch Trackpad
The Multi-Touch gestures in macOS make everything you do on the MacBook Air more intuitive and direct, 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.
Backlit Keyboard
As slim and compact as the MacBook Air is, Apple still managed to fit a full-size backlit keyboard, which provides a comfortable typing experience. 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.

    Apple MacBook Air reviews

    13.3" MacBook Air (Mid 2017, Silver) is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 117.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 1st Mac, works great Looked at both new MacBook Pro 13 and this Air. Decided to go with Air because of better keyboard, standard ports, (the Pro now requires dongles to connect most devices), and much lower price. The main drawback is the screen is lower resolution than the Pro, but for my use (email, MS office, web browsing) the resolution is fine. Performance is excellent; compared to windows laptops battery life is amazing streamed 3 hours of youtube and had only dropped to 90% battery level. I have never used MAC OS for any period of time, but I was able to get comfortable with it after a day or two.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great laptop, iffy shipping The laptop itself is exactly what I wanted. I've had Macs for years, so I knew what I was ordering and what to expect. When it arrived, though, the laptop box was extremely damaged, with one end being ripped open. This damage had been done BEFORE it was shipped because the white Apple box, the damaged brown box, and a lot of packing material was put into a much larger undamaged box to ship to me. Luckily there was no damage to the actual laptop because of the way it was packaged inside the white box. But what if it had been damaged? Whoever packaged it knowingly put a potentially broken laptop in a box and shipped it anyway. I have pictures, but it won't let me attach them to this review.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Satisfied. Hoping it will last until college I have been a window user for a really long time and wanted to try a Mac OS. Even though I was informed about the low specs of the MacBook Air but it was clearly enough for my school work as a high schooler. I'm hoping to use it when I go into college. The transition between windows to Mac OS took a little bit of time but even my friends with MacBook Air said it was worth the money. The processing of normal web surfing such as videos and other general activities was a piece of cake for this laptop. The battery life is amazing and I don't have to charge it an hour or so later. I'm very satisfied with this purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Service for a 1st time customer First time working with B&H.... in fact I had never heard of them until searching for dealers selling new Macbooks.� I searched the web, read reviews, and B&H seemed to be legit. Took a chance and purchased the Macbook air from B&H.� I was informed when the order was to be shipped and arriving at my house.� They updated the schedule when the delivery was picked up at B&H and the delivery date was spot on. Everything arrived as planned....new Macbook Air in original packaging with all expected pieces. I was using the Macbook that same day.� Great service.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does not disappoint After my (elderly) MacBook Pro was slowly dying, I started watching all the websites for pricing on a new one. I know B and H have great prices (and no sales tax) so I usually check there when looking to make a big purchase such as this. B and H did not disappoint! The price was BETTER than any other website, the shipping was fast and I couldn't be happier! �I needed a new lap top, but do not need a lot of fancy extras, so this is perfect! Does everything I need, fast and easy. �Thanks B and H

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I wanted This is my first Mac, and I'm very pleased with it. I was discouraged by all the complicated microsoft software and windows operating system. I wanted something easy and lightweight for my basic household tasks, and some graphic designing of quilts. This fits the bill! I've had it about 4 weeks now, and I'm still learning how to use apple apps, but I was immediately able to get online and do my holiday shopping and all my internet tasks with ease. This was a great purchase and an excellent deal with the holiday sale.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Investment The Laptop came in perfect condition. As if I bought it from the Apple Store. Probably stored better than Apple Store honestly. Definitely recommend to anyone who was on the fence about ordering and the condition it'll come in. Also, just FYI, for people that leaves bad reviews because the laptop performance, etc. Do your research before paying top dollar for anything or you'll be disappointed every time. Is it as good as the MacBook Pro? Of course not, but it shouldn't be. I can tell you that if you've done your research and is worried about the mere quality the laptop will come in then you won't be disappointed. And if you want the latest and greatest then don't settle and save an extra $400 and get a MacBook Pro. Either way you won't be dissatisfied by either Apple Laptop.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from A Big Mistake I bought this Apple Air Laptop for my daughter as her Surface 2 Pro's battery no longer held much of a charge and MS wanted $500 for a replacement. She uses Apple computers at work and liked them more that Windows computers. Once she took the Air out of the box it was clear there was a big problem. The screen is terrible. Well below even a 1080p screen quality. It is surprising the Apple would put such a poor quality screen in an otherwise very nice computer. We went to the Apple store to make sure ours was not defective and it was the same as others The next disappointment was that unlike Apple which allows returns within the first 15 days, B&H only allows returns within the first 20 days if it is not opened. How can you possibly test the computer without opening the box? So I made two mistakes. One was not going to the Apple store and testing the Air in person and the other was purchasing it from B&H which has a terrible computer return policy.
