Higher productivity for everyday tasks
The MacBook Air is equipped with a 4-core processor, which makes it even faster when performing daily tasks such as sorting photos, creating presentations, and even editing videos. With the latest 10th generation Intel Core processors, up to the quad-core 1.2 GHz i7 with Turbo Boost acceleration up to 3.8 GHz, the MacBook Air is now up to 2 times faster than the previous generation. And the Intel Iris Plus graphics processor in the MacBook Air received an increase of up to 80 percent, so the laptop handles resource-intensive tasks such as video editing and computer games much faster.
New Magic Keyboard
Now MacBook Air is equipped with the new Magic Keyboard, which was first introduced on the MacBook Pro 16 inches. The updated “scissors” mechanism with a 1 mm key travel ensures comfortable and ergonomic printing. The arrow keys are in the form of an inverted letter “T”, so they are easier to use when typing blindly. In the manufacture of the body of the novelty, only recycled aluminium is used. The laptop has preserved a cult design and is offered in three colour options: gold, silver and “grey space”. The 13-inch Retina display contains over 4 million pixels and is capable of transmitting millions of different colours.
Twice as much memory
The minimum storage capacity of the MacBook Air is 256 GB, which is twice as much as the previous generation models. Thanks to this, the device will fit even more videos, photos and other files. And users who need more memory can choose a MacBook Air with an SSD drive of up to 2 TB.
Built-in security and privacy features
The MacBook Air is powered by a 2nd generation Apple T2 Security Chip. It checks whether the software that is installed on the device at the initial boot has been hacked and provides continuous encryption of all data stored in the SSD memory module. Thanks to this, on any Mac computer with a T2 chip, including the MacBook Air, data during loading and storage is protected as much as possible. Also, the T2 chip protects the data that Touch ID uses, so users can not worry about the safety of important information when unlocking the Mac, entering passwords online and shopping on the Internet.
