Up to 12 hours of battery life

The 11-inch MacBook Air now lasts up to 9 hours between charges and the 13-inch model lasts up to an incredible 12 hours. So from your morning coffee till your evening commute, you can work unplugged. When it’s time to kick back and relax, you can get up to 8 hours of iTunes movie playback on the 11-inch model and up to 10 hours on the 13-inch model. And with up to 30 days of standby time, you can go away for weeks and pick up right where you left off.

The newest Intel processors

Whatever the task, fourth-generation Intel Core processors with Intel HD Graphics 5000 are up to it. From editing photos to perfecting a presentation to just browsing the web, everything moves ultrafast. These new processors also help give MacBook Air its extended battery life, thanks to a new architecture that’s designed to use less power.

New 802.11ac Wi-Fi support

With the latest 802.11ac technology, MacBook Air takes Wi-Fi speeds over the top. Connect to an 802.11ac base station — including the new AirPort Extreme or AirPort Time Capsule — and experience wireless performance up to 3x faster than the previous generation. 802.11ac also delivers expanded range, so you can work more freely than ever.

Faster all-flash storage

Flash storage in MacBook Air is now up to 45 percent faster than the previous generation. So everything you do is snappier and more responsive. MacBook Air even wakes up faster than ever, thanks to flash storage and the latest Intel Core processors. And now the 11-inch model comes standard with twice the capacity — 128GB — yet still starts at $999.
