The MacBook Air is a line of laptop computers developed and manufactured by Apple Inc. It consists of a full-size keyboard, a machined aluminum case, and, in the more modern versions, a thin light structure. The Air was originally positioned above the previous MacBook line as a premium ultraportable. Since then, the original MacBook’s discontinuation in 2011, and lowered prices on subsequent iterations, have made the Air Apple’s entry-level laptop. In the current product line, the MacBook Air is situated below the performance range MacBook Pro.

It was introduced in January 2008 with a 13.3-inch screen, and was promoted as the world’s thinnest notebook, opening a laptop category known as the ultrabook family. Apple released a second generation MacBook Air in October 2010, with a redesigned tapered chassis, standard solid-state storage, and added a smaller 11.6-inch version. Later revisions added Intel Core i5 or i7 processors and Thunderbolt.

The third generation was released in October 2018, with reduced dimensions, a Retina display, and combination USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 ports for data and power. An updated model was released in February 2020 with the Magic Keyboard and an option for an Intel Core i7 processor. A fourth generation model, based on Apple silicon processors, was introduced in November 2020.

Apple incorporated several features in the design, such as the reduction of lead to make it more environmentally friendly. It contains no BFRs and PVC wiring, meets Energy Star 5.0 requirements, has a recyclable enclosure, and is rated EPEAT Gold. Its display is made with arsenic-free glass and contains no mercury.
