About This Product
Apple MacBook Air (2020) with Retina Display
Providing both portability and performance, the Silver Apple 13.3″ MacBook Air with Retina Display houses a 1.1 GHz 10th Gen Intel Core i3 Dual-Core processor, which can be boosted up to 3.2 GHz, and 8GB of 3733 MHz LPDDR4X RAM in its trademark thin and light unibody wedge design made from 100% recycled aluminum. For faster boot times and app launches, the MacBook Air utilizes a 256GB PCIe SSD. With over 4 million pixels, the 13.3″ Retina Display features a 2560 x 1600 screen resolution and a 16:10 aspect ratio for 227 pixels per inch (ppi). The display also features up to 48 percent more color than the previous generation. With True Tone technology, the white balance automatically adjusts to match the color temperature of the light around you for a more natural viewing experience. Integrated Iris Plus Graphics handle your graphical demands. For more graphical performance, the MacBook Air supports Thunderbolt 3-enabled external graphics processors, also known as eGPUs. This is because there are dual Thunderbolt 3 ports with DisplayPort support, allowing you to output up to a single 6K external display.
The MacBook Air now also features the Force Touch Touchpad and the Magic Keyboard with a redesigned scissor mechanism, providing 1mm of key travel, and the inverted-“T” arrangement of the arrow keys, resulting in a comfortable yet accurate typing experience. The Touch ID sensor lets you quickly unlock your MacBook Air with just your fingerprint. You can also use Touch ID to make purchases over the web, thanks to Apple Pay. Touch ID works with the Apple T2 chip, providing on-the-fly data encryption for everything stored on the SSD as well as “Hey Siri” functionality. Since the MacBook Air makes it easy to travel with, you’ll be using it in a variety of environments with different lighting conditions. The backlit Magic Keyboard has an ambient light sensor so it adjusts to your environment, conserving battery life. Speaking of battery life, the MacBook Air provides up to 11 hours of wireless web browsing and up to 30 days of standby time, thanks to its built-in 49.9 Wh lithium-polymer battery. When it’s time to recharge, you can plug in the 30W power adapter into its Thunderbolt 3 (USB Type-C) port. Connect to the internet via Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac) and use Bluetooth 5.0 to connect peripherals and accessories wirelessly.
This Mac comes preloaded with macOS. Updates can be downloaded for free via the Mac App Store. Please check Apple’s website for upgrade eligibility.

Thunderbolt 3 is a hardware interface that utilizes the reversible USB Type-C connector. Doubling the speed of its predecessor, Thunderbolt 3 features a maximum throughput of 40 Gb/s when used with compatible devices. The connector also transmits data via USB 3.1 at up to 10 Gb/s, and dual-bandwidth DisplayPort 1.2 allows you to connect up to two 4K displays simultaneously. Additionally, you can daisy chain up to six devices from a single Thunderbolt 3 port.
The advanced security and convenience of Touch ID is built into the MacBook Air. Simply place your finger on the integrated Touch ID sensor and your MacBook Air unlocks. Use your fingerprint to immediately access locked documents, notes, and system settings. You can also use Apple Pay securely during checkout while online shopping.
