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 256GB 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 256GB 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 4.4 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Uncommon review This is an uncommon review since I wasn't interested in buying this. I got it for my sister, she asked me to open and try it before I gave it to her. So thats what I did. Big surprise when I opened the box was about the weight. I don't know why they keep calling it air. Secondly, about the screen. How can Apple release a product in mid 2017 without retina display? I guess there should be an option with that feature, but honestly they shouldn't be keeping selling products with bad resolution screens these days. Even cheap smartphones/tvs out there have better resolution screens. Shame Apple, keep stealling thounsands of dlls from us XD

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from new keyboard -- very disappointing I bought a Macbook Air just a few years ago, so, when I needed to get another one, I bought with confidence.� In most respects this mac is just as good as the old one, but the keyboard has deteriorated sharply in quality: it is noisy and clacky instead of silent; the keys tilt and wriggle around under your fingers rather than have a nice solid feel to them; even the plastic the keys are made out of seems to be cheap compared to the old one.� It looks cheap, and it feels cheap.� It's the quality you would expect on a cheap knockoff import of a windows machine.� Very disappointing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from my 2nd MacBook air in the old days i'd buy a new windows laptop every year due to their being junk...ofcourse i always bought the cheapest one loaded with junk ware... in 2012 i broke down and spend an outrageous sum of $1300 bucks for a MacBook air... have had it for 5 years which amortizes out to be less than buying new windows junk every year... my old air is/was running great till some clumsy fool dropped it and made it go a but senile... so...bought the latest air and i couldn't be happier...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Experience Everything good I had heard about B&H was absolutely true with my recen purchase of a MacBook Air. I'm a hard core bargain hunter and they the best price anywhere. Computer arrived exactly when they said it would in perfect condition with free shipping. Shopping doesn't get any better than that!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from MacBook Air I've ordered from B&H Photo 5 or 6 times, now, and I've always been very happy with their service, price, and the product I purchased.� The MacBook Air was perfect for my needs because it is fast, lightweight, and it has the best variety and number of inputs of all the MacBooks.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mac Compjuter I received my computer on time. I am loving it so far, and it is working way better than my last computer. It is just the right size for what I need, and I love the colors. I am just happy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from First MAC Laptop The MAC air appears to. E a great laptop to date. Let’s me do the basic internet searches, emails and word processing with ease. Have yet to test it’s capacity for photo editing.
