Definition: MacBook Air

Launched in 2008, the MacBook Air is Apple's lightest, thinnest laptop. In 2023, a 15" model debuted, which is the largest screen ever on an Air laptop. A year later, the Air debuted with Apple's M3 chip, giving it a huge boost in horsepower. In addition, an M3-based Air supports two external monitors, making it a more versatile desktop computer and still be very lightweight for traveling. In addition, the M3 chip includes a 16-core neural processing unit (NPU) enabling it to compete in today's world of AI processing. See MacBook.
