The MacBook Air started as the go-to Mac if you're a frequent traveler. It then became Apple's budget laptop option.
The Air comes in two sizes. There's an 11.6-inch model for those looking for a super small laptop. And there's a 13.3-inch model for those wanting a bigger screen.
To keep its size down, the Air has a few space-saving features. Perhaps the coolest is the flash storage. That means there's no physical disc that holds your data. This is a more reliable, quieter, and faster method of storing information.
Flash storage also makes booting up, opening programs, and browsing through media extremely fast.
All the Air models have a fourth-generation (Haswell), dual-core 1.3GHz Intel Core i5 processor and 4GB of RAM standard. You can upgrade to a 1.7GHz Core i7 processor and 8GB of RAM.
