Apple MacBook Air 8th Gen Intel Core i5-8210Y @1.6GHz 8GB RAM 256GB SSD 13″ Retina Display Bluetooth Webcam WiFi Intel UHD Graphics 617 Late 2018
The Apple MacBook Air “Core i5” 1.6 13-Inch (Retina, Late 2018) model features a 14-nm “Amber Lake Y” 1.6 GHz Intel “Core i5” processor (8210Y) with two independent processors “cores” on a single chip, a 4 MB shared level 3 cache, 8 GB of 2133 MHz LPDDR3 SDRAM and 256 GB of onboard PCIe-based flash storage, and an “integrated” Intel UHD Graphics 617 graphics processor that shares system memory. Both the RAM and the SSD could be upgraded at the time of initial system purchase, but not subsequently.
This model is powered by a 14 nm, 64-bit “8th Generation” Intel Mobile Core i5 “Amber Lake Y” (I5-8210Y) processor which includes two independent processors “cores” on a single silicon chip. Each core has a dedicated 256k level 2 cache, shares 4 MB of level 3 cache, and has an integrated memory controller (dual channel). This system also supports “Turbo Boost 2.0” — which “automatically increases the speed of the active cores” to improve performance when needed (up to 3.6 GHz for this model) — and “Hyper-Threading” — which allows the system to recognize four total “cores” or “threads” (two real and two virtual).
13.3″ Retina IPS Display
With four times as many pixels as an HD display, the 13.3″ Retina IPS Display provides up to 48 percent more color than the previous generation. The Retina Display has a 2560 x 1600 screen resolution and a 16:10 aspect ratio for 227 pixels per inch (ppi). The display glass goes right to the edge of the screen, making the bezels 50 percent thinner than before.
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. No need to enter shipping or billing info and your card details are never shared.
Apple T2 Security Chip
Introducing the Apple T2 chip, a second‑generation custom Mac silicon designed by Apple to make MacBook Air even more secure. The Apple T2 chip includes a Secure Enclave coprocessor that provides the foundation for secure boot and encrypted storage capabilities. It also consolidates many discrete controllers, including the system management controller, audio controller, and SSD controller, into one. And the Apple T2 chip brings a familiar voice to MacBook Air – Hey Siri is always ready to open apps, find documents, play music, or answer your questions.
The keyboard features the butterfly mechanism, which provides four times more key stability than a traditional scissor mechanism, and has greater comfort and responsiveness. And individual LED-backlit keys with an ambient light sensor help you type in low-light environments.
Force Touch Trackpad
The Force Touch trackpad lets you interact with your MacBook Air in a variety of ways based on subtle differences in pressure. You have precise control and a uniform response — no matter where you click the trackpad — as well as plenty of room for Multi-Touch gestures, like pinch and zoom.
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 improved stereo speakers feature twice the bass with greater range and have 25 percent more volume than the previous generation. The wider stereo sound creates immersive audio when you’re listening to music or watching a movie.
FaceTime HD Camera
The front-facing HD camera allows you to FaceTime with friends and family in HD quality for either one-on-one or group calls. The three integrated microphones form an array that can accurately capture your voice for FaceTime calls, as well as dictation and talking to Siri.
