All systems go with SSD storage
Part of what makes MacBook Air so responsive is that it’s designed entirely around SSD storage. Not only does this make MacBook Air much lighter and more portable than traditional notebooks, it also provides faster access to data. Available in capacities up to 512GB,3 this PCIe-based SSD storage is up to 17 times faster than a traditional 5400-rpm notebook hard drive.4 So when you flip open MacBook Air, it’s ready to go straightaway. Even after a month in standby mode, the screen springs to life.
Thunderbolt 2 and USB 3, Make some powerful connections
Connect your MacBook Air to your devices and displays with a Thunderbolt 2 port that’s twice as fast as the previous generation. But that’s not the whole story. MacBook Air also comes equipped with two USB 3 ports, so you can connect the latest USB 3 devices and all your USB 2 devices as well. With just a few connections, MacBook Air transforms from an ultra-portable notebook into a complete workstation.
Fifth-generation Intel Core processors, Performance, meet endurance
MacBook Air is powered by fifth-generation Intel Core i5 and i7 processors. This ultra-efficient architecture was designed to use less power and still deliver high performance. Which means not only can you do whatever you want — you can keep doing it for longer than before. In addition, the Intel HD Graphics 6000 processor offers advanced performance you’ll particularly notice with games and other graphics-intensive tasks.
