Product Expert laptops

In contrast with its predecessors, the 13.3-inch MacBook Air 2018 has a Retina display, which can display the tiniest details of images. On top of that, the screen is nearly edgeless, which means you have relatively more screen space than with other 13.3-inch laptops. You can use a MacBook Air at home, on the go, or in a lecture room, since the MacBook is thin (1.56cm) and light (1.25kg), which means you can easily take it with you. Thanks to Touch ID, you can log in with your fingerprint, so you can quickly get to work. You can leave the charger at home, since a charged battery will last for about 12 hours. Complete your MacBook Air with an Apple Magic Mouse.
