Product Description

Hell, yeah. This is a MacBook, and that means quality - no matter how you look at it. Like everything Apple does, this MacBook Air is visually stunning and has quality features that are streamlined and a breeze to use. It's sleek. It's futuristic. It's almighty. Underneath its slender design and trademark silver coloring, there's hardware that packs a punch. The 1.8GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 processor comes with a little Turbo Boost, so it's quicker than lightning no matter what you're doing. You will also experience the SSD storage (an obvious perk) with an 8GB of memory that will improve your speed even more. In terms of the screen, you'll be hypnotized by the Intel HD Graphics on the 13.3-inches of retina display screen - colors are deeper, images more clear. Of course, as an Apple laptop you get all of the preloaded goodies like iMovie, Safari, iTunes, Keynote, and Siri, and will be able to link up your MacBook with any other Apple devices you own. Throw in the two USB 3 ports and another for Thunderbolt 2 and the end result is a laptop of almost timeless perfection that does everything you'll ever need.
