The processor performance is 3.5 times faster than the previous generation Air, the graphics are 5 times faster, and the SSD speed is 2 times faster. At the same time, the compactness of the device was preserved.

In addition, the battery life has increased: When browsing the web over Wi-Fi, the new MacBook Air will last up to 15 hours on a single charge, or up to 18 hours if you're just playing videos offline. That's 6 hours longer than its predecessor and the longest battery life in a MacBook Air. They also promise that video calls will last twice as long as before.
