At A Glance

While the MacBook Air improvements are mostly subtle, they succeed in making an already excellent product even more desirable.

Manufacturer’s Description

Sure, MacBook Air is unbelievably thin and light. But we also designed it to be powerful, capable, durable, and enjoyable to use. With enough battery life to get you through the day. That's the difference between a notebook that's simply thin and light and one that's so much more.
