Product information

The new stunningly designed 13.3-inch Apple MacBook Air will speed through intensive applications twice at lighting speeds while preserving battery life thanks to its fourth generation Haswell Intel Core i5 processor. Made from lightweight aluminium, it features a whole host of great connectivity options, including USB 3.0, an SD card reader and a lighting fast Thunderbolt port. Tough, slim and very portable - the MacBook Air is your perfect partner for work, rest or play.

Key benefits:

  • Your new MacBook Air will arrive with OS X Mountain Lion. Mountain Lion introduces innovative features including the all new Messages app, Notification Center, system-wide Sharing, AirPlay Mirroring, Game Centre and the enhanced security of Gatekeeper. With iCloud built into the foundation of OS X, Mountain Lion makes it easier than ever to keep your content up to date across all your devices.

  • The MacBook Air is incredibly thin and light thanks to its aluminium construction. Measuring just 1.7cm at its deepest point and weighing an astonishing 1.35kg, this laptop is perfect for taking on the road with you.

  • The latest Haswell Intel Core i5 processor will handle whatever you throw at it, allowing you to multi-task and work on intensive applications without experiencing any lag. Applications run faster and more efficiently than before. So everything you normally do on a computer you can do even quicker. Send email, write reports, create presentations, touch up photos, edit home movies and all the little (and big) tasks in between.

  • The 128GB all-flash storage will allow you to store your photos, music and personal documents in the one place. Flash storage doesn’t have any moving parts, which means it’s more reliable and quiet. Lightning fast, durable, silent — qualities that make sense in a laptop tasked with keeping up with you.

  • Expect to be delighted by the MacBook Air’s beautifully bright LED-backlit widescreen display. It’s 1440 x 900 so you’ll notice the finest of details on web content, movies or when gaming. Experience an immersive entertainment experience thanks to powerful stereo speakers which will get the most from your films, videos and music.

  • MacBook Air also features Intel’s HD Graphics 5000 shared graphics card which includes an on-chip engine for video encoding and decoding.

  • A 720p FaceTime camera will allow you to experience video calling in HD to any other device with FaceTime. This could be another MacBook or to someone’s iPhone 5 when connected to a Wi-Fi signal.

  • Two USB 3.0 ports will allow you to connect peripheral items such as mice, printers or USB storage devices, and transfer data 10 times faster than USB 2.0 with compatible devices. The Thunderbolt port allows rapid transferring of files, so you’ll save time when trying to save large files in a hurry. With two 10-Gbps data channels, Thunderbolt lets you transfer data at rates up to 12 times faster than FireWire 800 and up to 20 times faster than USB 2.0. Bluetooth 4.0 will allow you to connect to compatible devices within range, sharing libraries and playing media. Along with a handy SD card slot, you’ll even be able to enjoy your digital snaps with ease.

  • The battery life is impressive also, lasting up to 12 hours when connected wirelessly to the web - allowing you to stray from a plug socket to attend meetings or sit in a more comfortable environment.

  • Despite its size, the MacBook Air still packs a full-size keyboard that makes typing as natural as it is comfortable. And now the keyboard is backlit, so you can type with ease in even the dimmest light.

  • With the Mac App Store, getting the apps you want on your Mac has never been easier. No more boxes, no more discs, no more time-consuming installation. Click once to download and install any app on your Mac. But if an app you need isn’t available from the Mac App Store, you can use DVD or CD Sharing. This convenient feature of OS X lets you wirelessly ‘borrow’ the optical drive of a nearby Mac or PC. So, you’ll still be able to install applications from a DVD or CD and have full access to an optical drive without having to carry one around.

It brings new apps to your desktop. Adds features you’ll love to use. And introduces technologies that help your Mac perform even better—while using even less power.

Best Computer i've Ever Owned! I've been using apple products for about eight years now and always been with happy with them. My last laptop (15inch MacBook Pro late 2008) unfortunately had a few teething problems and suffered from battery problems and hinges so I thought it was time to buy a new pro. Well I was looking through all the mac computers and came across this little Gem, as a musician with the need of a big HDD for my music I was initially sceptical about buying this but this is the BEST computer I have ever own, its thin, sexy, PORTABLE and very very FAST. The 13inch is perfect has the SD disc which is very helpful. 21 December 2013
Did not work Product was useless as could not connect to wifi network in spite of two hours apple phone support. .Also fan noise was unacceptably loud.. Spent many years promising myself this item, now totally disillusioned with the Apple brand. 13 December 2013
Fastest Macbook! Very pleased with this Macbook Air! It is much faster than my previous one which was also purchased from John Lewis! Anyone thinking of converting to Mac then I would highly recommend this product! Don't be worried about the missing CD drive either just piggy back another one from another computer in your home i'm sure you will have more than one these days! 03 November 2013
Love it Great computer very fast, Took about an hour to get to terms with it, Battery is very good will last all day for my needs and charges in around 1 hour, On the down side no disc drive but i rarely use one anyway (only to rip my cd’s on), Speakers need improvement and storage could be better for the price, Cash back offer made the final decision for me. 09 October 2013
