What is a MacBook Air?

The MacBook Air is an ultra-thin notebook designed for people who need to use their Mac on the move and want it as small and light as possible. It really is very small and light which is made possible by using flash storage instead of a conventional hard drive and by some incredible design and engineering. Although small, the MacBook Air is pretty powerful using Intel Core i5 or i7 processors and it's battery life, usually a weakness in ultra-compact notebooks, is up to 7 hours on a single charge. The ultra-thin displays (under 5mm thick) have a resolution equivalent to much larger screens so although small it feels more like a bigger one. There is no CD/DVD drive but it can wirelessly share one from a nearby Mac or you can use an external USB drive.

What do I need to know?

All Macs share many of the same features, and are available in a range of different specifications and prices so several different models may be suitable for your requirements - they all run the same software and do more or less the same thing, so how do you decide which is the right one? We've put together a couple of guides to help you. Read our guide to the different Mac models and our tips on how to choose the right used Mac to help you decide what you need.

Where can I buy one?

There are many places you can buy an MacBook Air - specialist resellers such as MacWarehouse and PC World, leading internet retailers Amazon and eBay and also an ever increasing number of high street retailers such as Currys, Dixons, Saverstore and John Lewis who also sell the MacBook Air. We have put together an MacBook Air price comparison page checking prices from all these sources to find the best deals for you.

What about secondhand MacBook Airs?

Secondhand can be an attractive option, saving you the initial depreciation that happens as soon as you open the box, and if you buy a fairly new secondhand one, all the manufacturer's warranty will still be in place so you will be fully covered in the event of any faults. If you're prepared to go slightly older, you can often pick up some real bargains with last year's model going for a fraction of it's original price. eBay is of course one of the best places to find secondhand MacBook Air bargains and we have created a page that searches eBay for you to find the best deals on secondhand MacBook Air for sale. Our unique filtering system trawls through the eBay database selecting only the most relevant offers and best deals to save you time.
