Lean. Mean. M3 machine. MacBook Air sails through work and play. Supercharged with the M3 chip, boosted by 8GB of RAM, Apple's 2024 MacBook Air is designed to go places. Super‑light, just over 11 millimetres thin, and with up to 18 hours of battery life, you can take the super‑portable MacBook Air anywhere and blaze through whatever you’re into.

A chipload of power.

The moment you open your MacBook Air, it’s ready for whatever you throw at it. And no matter how intense the workload, it stays silent thanks to a fanless design. Whether you’re multi-tasking between apps, editing videos, or playing games, the M3 chip brings more speed and fluidity to everything you do.

MacBook Air with M3 leverages the incredible AI performance of the Neural Engine to deliver intelligent macOS features that enhance productivity and creativity, including powerful camera features, real-time speech to text, and visual understanding.

A battery that just keeps going

Somehow, despite its impossibly thin design, the MacBook Air lasts up to 18 hours between charges. Pretty impressive, considering most of us struggle to even stay awake for that long. Oh, and just in case you need some juice quick, fast charging gives you up to 50% battery life in just 30 minutes.

To be clear, it's gorgeous

The 13-inch Liquid Retina display comes with support for 1 billion colours meaning photos and videos pop with rich contrast and sharp detail, and text appears super-crisp for easy reading.

Look sharp. Sound great.

Look your best with the 1080p FaceTime HD camera, whether you’re catching up with friends and family or collaborating with co‑workers around the globe.

What is RAM?

RAM (Random Access Memory) is different to the permanent storage provided by hard disk drives (HDD), solid state drives (SSD) or memory cards in your equipment. RAM is used by your device to temporarily store data to carry out everyday operations. The more RAM your machine has, the faster you can expect it to open and run programs. This device has 8GB RAM.

Let your fingers do the talking

The comfortable and quiet backlit Magic Keyboard comes with full-height function keys and Touch ID, which gives you a fast, easy and secure way to unlock your Mac and sign in to apps and sites — all at the touch of a finger.

Make some powerful connections

The MagSafe charging cable easily attaches and detaches with magnets, preventing any unintended flights. Two Thunderbolt ports let you connect high-speed accessories and charge your Mac. And the headphone jack supports high‑impedance headphones. With the M3 model, you can access Wi‑Fi 6E.

Includes AppleCare warranty

Every Mac comes with a one-year limited warranty and up to ninety days of complimentary support. You can also choose to get optional AppleCare+ to extend your coverage (available separately).

Additional information: manufacturers often update their Operating System (OS) software over the course of a device's lifespan – this means that your product might ship with a more advanced OS than specified.
