The MacBook Air takes portability to new heights, since it’s super thin and weighs less than 3 pounds. But don’t let its size fool you — there is some powerful tech packed into this machine. In terms of visuals, you’re getting a 13.3-inch Retina display for a super crisp picture. And with a sleek gray exterior and True Tone technology, which adjusts the display’s color temperature based on surrounding light, this notebook’s looks are easy on the eyes in more ways than one.
A prime component of this flagship device is the Magic Keyboard. It features punchy, responsive keys with more travel than your typical MacBook keyboard; that is, they go down further when pressed, which provides a more satisfying typing experience. Plus, you’ll find a Touch ID sensor for unlocking your device and authenticating purchases. Read more about this and other features in our full review of the laptop here.
Meanwhile, its 10th generation Intel Core i3 processor can handle multitasking and light gaming, and with 256GB of solid-state storage, you’ll enjoy zippy file transfers and short loading times. Last but not least, this MacBook Air has 8GB of RAM, more than enough for running multiple apps at the same time.
