This slim, lightweight laptop makes it easy to tackle serious work anywhere, packing a powerful CPU and HD screen into a sub-3lb. frame
Apple MacBook Air 13.3” Laptop with Intel Core i5-5250U Processor, 8GB RAM, and 128GB SSD
Designed with portability in mind, this slim, lightweight laptop weighs less than 3lb., making it a breeze to carry with you to coffee shops, through airport security, or anywhere you travel. Despite its slim proportions, it doesn’t skimp on power—a 5th-generation Intel Core i5 CPU and 8GB of RAM keep everything running smoothly.
Stream shows, catch the latest movie trailers, or explore an online video game’s vivid fantasyland in crisp, clear detail. Saturated with more than 1 million pixels, the display produces image quality similar to what you’d see on an HDTV. Such sharpness and clarity also make the text on your favorite news and social-media sites clear and easy to read.
Solid-State Drive: Speed and Reliability
The built-in solid-state drive (SSD) performs the same duties of a traditional hard-disk drive, but up to 100 times faster. Unlike hard-disk drives, SSDs don’t rely on moving parts to write, store, and retrieve data; instead, they use flash memory chips that can boot up your computer and launch apps in mere seconds. Without the moving parts, SSDs are also lighter, take up less space within your computer, and are less susceptible to damage and data loss from computer bumps.
Video Chat with Anyone, Anywhere
A built-in webcam can make it feel like people miles away are in the room with you, helping you connect more clearly than with a phone call or email. Collaborate with colleagues in other offices, listen as your niece or nephew rapturously explains their finger painting, or laugh every time your friend’s cat walks across their keyboard.
Do More with High-Speed Thunderbolt 2
Whether you’re uploading 4K video or backing up your entire photo library, Thunderbolt 2 connectivity helps you move files to and from your computer smoothly. When connected to compatible devices, a Thunderbolt 2 port supports data transfer speeds of up to 20GB/s—four times the speed of USB 3.0—in both directions. With that kind of bandwidth, you can move large files and connect an external 4K monitor, all from a single port.

From the start, Steve Jobs was enthralled with not only the novelty of technology but also its design. When speaking about the Apple computer, he said it was “going to be insanely beautiful.” Over the years, Apple’s products have worked to fuse innovative technology with almost artful design. The iMac stunned the world with its colorful plastic shells, which the New York Times said “more closely resemble a pack of Life Savers than a new computer line.” The glossy white iPod—no bigger than a deck of playing cards—could hold an entire library of music. Time Magazine named the iPhone the Invention of the Year for its stunning design and, uniquely, because of the promise it held for even better products in the future. With each new item they launch, Apple works to shape the way future societies communicate, learn, and dance when they’re alone.
