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.
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.
Lighning Speed 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.
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.
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.
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.
