All the Power You Want. All Day Long.

The new MacBook Air is thin, light, and durable enough to take everywhere you go -- and powerful enough to do everything once you get there. A fourth-generation Intel Core processor and Intel HD Graphics 5000 deliver high performance, while using less power. So you get remarkable battery life: up to 12 hours on this 13.3-inch model. And with up to 45 percent faster flash storage compared to the previous generation and new 802.11ac Wi-Fi for up to 3x faster wireless, the new MacBook Air is quicker and more responsive than ever.

This version of the MacBook Air (model MD761LL/A) sports a 13.3-inch high-resolution display, 1.3 GHz Intel Core i5 dual-core processor (with a Turbo Boost of up to 2.6 GHz), 256 GB of flash memory storage, and 4 GB of RAM (see full specifications below).

Key Features

Up to 12 Hours of Battery Life

Power through your whole work day with the 13-inch MacBook Air, which delivers up to 12 hours of battery life -- more time power for word processing, presentations, email, and more . The increase is due to a larger battery (thanks to the compact all-flash storage in the MacBook Air) and the new power-efficient Intel Core processor architecture. Put the MacBook Air to sleep for more than 3 hours, and it enters standby mode to conserve battery life for up to 30 days.

802.11ac: The New Definition of Fast

The MacBook Air now supports ultrafast 802.11ac Wi-Fi. When connected to an 802.11ac base station -- including the new AirPort Extreme and AirPort Time Capsule -- wireless performance is up to three times faster than with the previous generation of MacBook Air. And your Wi-Fi range improves as well.

Flash Memory Storage

By replacing the standard spinning hard drive typically found in laptops (as well as desktop PCs) with flash memory, the MacBook Air delivers an almost instantaneous boot-up when you open the display, as well as faster application launches and snappier overall performance. Additionally, Apple has shed the enclosure that typically surrounds flash memory (usually about the same size as a standard hard drive), thus giving it a smaller footprint and helping to decrease the size of the MacBook Air.

Fourth-Generation Intel Core i5 Dual-Core Processing

The ultra-efficient architecture of the fourth-generation Intel Core i5 processor was designed to use less power and still deliver high performance. It has a 1.3 GHz speed, which can dynamically accelerate up to 2.6 GHz to match your workload thanks to updated Intel Turbo Boost Technology.

And with the Intel HD Graphics 5000 processor, you get up to 40 percent faster graphics -- performance you'll especially notice with games and other graphics-intensive tasks.

Revolutionary Thunderbolt Technology

Developed by Intel with collaboration from Apple, high-speed Thunderbolt I/O (input/output) technology delivers an amazing 10 gigabits per second of transfer speeds in both directions. Built into the MacBook Air, the Thunderbolt port allows you to connect to new Thunderbolt-compatible peripherals as well as existing USB and FireWire peripherals using simple adapters. You'll be able to move data up to 20 times faster than with USB 2.0 and more than 12 times faster than with FireWire 800, and you can daisy-chain up to six high-speed devices without using a hub. Thunderbolt also supports DisplayPort for high resolution displays and works with existing adapters for HDMI, DVI, and VGA displays.

USB 3

With USB 3 built into the MacBook Air, you can connect your external hard drive and transfer large files in seconds instead of minutes. Every MacBook Air comes with two USB 3 ports--with speeds up to 10 times faster than USB 2--and you can connect all your USB-compatible devices, including your iPhone, iPad, iPod, or digital camera.

Integrated HD FaceTime Webcam

You'll be able to easily connect with friends, family, and business colleagues using the MacBook Air's HD 720p FaceTime camera, which is integrated into the thin bezel above the display and features three times the resolution of the previous FaceTime camera. And with Apple's FaceTime application, you're not limited to video chats with other Macs--you can now make video calls to iPhone and iPod touch users.
