Apple MacBook Air
Amongst the lightest Apple laptops is the Apple MacBook Air. With a lower price point than some models, the MacBook Air starts at under £1000 making it an affordable piece of tech for cost-conscious consumers.
Perfect for those who are in need of a portable laptop when travelling, it is compact and easy to carry when on the go. Additionally, the MacBook Air is suitable for home use. The MagSafe connector ensures that in the event of anyone tripping over or anything tugging on the charging cable, it will simply disconnect from its port with no resistance to prevent damage.
The latest model of MacBook Air supports 802.11ac Wi-Fi. When connected to a base station such as the AirPort Extreme or AirPort Time Capsule, the wireless performance of the laptop is increased up to 3 times faster than the previous generation of Wi-Fi. The range of Wi-Fi is also improved, allowing users to work freely without being restrained by a limited Wi-Fi range. It is also possible to connect Bluetooth devices to the MacBook Air, ridding you of any pesky wires while staying more connected than ever.
The MacBook Air also boasts up to 12 hours of battery life from Apple MacBook Air batteries , giving an incredible 2 hour jump on all MacBook and MacBook Pro models. There are USB and SD card ports in the MacBook Air, meaning that there is no need for adapters, dongles or card readers. This ensures transferring photos to and from the MacBook Air is easy and efficient.
Although the MacBook Air is thin and light, it manages to retain a full-sized keyboard that is both comfortable to type on and backlit so you are able to see what you are typing in any lighting. A multi-touch trackpad is also included, which uses different commands such as swipes and pinches with your fingers to switch between apps, scrolling through pages and much more.
It is also possible to customise your laptop with MacBook Air stickers .
