Apple’s long established and super-popular laptop has a little something for everyone! Available in 11-inch and 13-inch varieties, the MacBook Air is small enough to fit into most bags or backpacks without causing a noticeable bulge. In addition, the low 3 to 3.5 pound weight will not slow you down when you’re running across campus or jogging through an airport!
The MacBook Air turns in decent performance and a great 3-6 hours of battery life (in real world tests). The familiar “raised key” keyboard on the “Air” is a welcome sight for many long-standing Apple users as typing on these laptops is very comfortable.

As with many Mac laptops, internal expansion options are limited so we’d recommend you choose the RAM and SSD you’ll need BEFORE ordering!
