The MacBook Air is powered by an Intel processor that delivers responsive, reliable computing whatever the task thanks to a capable 2.2 GHz clock speed. Intel® HD Graphics offers impressive visuals across media and everyday computing, so you can enjoy HD films, browsing and all of your daily tasks at their best. Computers in the MacBook Air's weight class are most often classified in the "netbook" category. Netbooks typically feature less-than-full-size keyboards, cramped trackpads, and low-powered CPUs. Not so with the MacBook Air. This computer features a standard-size backlit chiclet keyboard, the same as on the larger computers in the MacBook line. It also has a large multi-touch glass trackpad, giving you full control over your computer -- without sacrificing ergonomics.
Multitasking and demanding processes are aided by 8 GB of RAM which, when combined with the efficiency of OS , delivers smooth computing regardless of what you're working on. The Auto Save feature on the MacBook Air ensures that you won't lose data, even when you forget to save a file. The OS tracks different versions of your documents, so you can go back to a previous draft of a document with ease. AirDrop makes it easy to transmit files wirelessly between computers, even if there is no central Wi-Fi network available. The revamped Mail application takes full advantage of modern widescreen displays.
