Apple MacBook Air 2017 Philippines: Prices, Features, and Specs

Apple MacBook Air 2017: Great Laptop for Everyday Use

Although Apple hasn’t integrated a lot of improvements into its 2017 update of the MacBook Air, the laptop remains a great choice for home, school, and office use. It sports a 13.3-inch display and a dual-core Intel chip, allowing it to perform with ease for everyday use. Here’s what you need to know about the MacBook Air 2017 specs and features.

Energy-Efficient Display

The MacBook Air 2017’s 13.3-inch screen is topped with a glossy LED panel with a 1,440x900 pixel resolution. It may not have the Retina display similar to that of the MacBook Pro models but its screen is less energy-intensive, meaning it uses less power which contributes to its lower overall cost.

Fast Graphics Performance

If you have owned a MacBook Air 2015 and you try to compare it to the 2017 version, you won’t see much difference. The 2017 MacBook Air comes with a slightly faster chip, namely the dual-core Intel processor, which comes in two tiers – 1.8 GHz Intel Core i5 and 2.2 GHz Intel Core i7. These processors are fast enough for social media, streaming, browsing, and office needs. The 1.8 GHz chip is an improvement over the MacBook Air 2015’s 1.6 GHz processor, providing a faster graphics performance. If that’s not fast enough, you can configure this Apple laptop using an i7 Intel Core chip which is clocked at 2.2 GHz. In addition, the MacBook 2017 has a standard 8 GB of RAM that ensures fast and smooth performance.

Overclocking Feature

One of the best hardware features on the MacBook Air 2017 is the “Turbo Boost” which enhances the performance of its chip, pushing it to greater speeds. For instance, the 1.8 GHz i5 processor can reach 2.9 GHz, while the 2.2 GHz option can be pushed to 3.2 GHz. To enable this feature, make sure there’s power available and the temperature is safe enough.

Great Entry-Level Storage and Various Ports

The MacBook Air 2017’s entry-level 128-GB storage space should suffice for browsing and light office work. But if you are fond of storing images, video, or music, you might want to consider the 256-GB storage variant for a larger storage space.

When it comes to the ports and slots, you’ll get two USB 3.0 ports, one Thunderbolt 2.0 port, one MagSafe 2.0 power port, one SDXC camera card slot, and a 5 mm headphone jack.

Amazing Built-in Software and Apps

The MacBook Air 2017 is packed with amazing Apple apps, such as FaceTime for free video calls with other Apple gadgets, office apps (including Keynote presentation, Numbers spreadsheet, etc.), music making, and movie making apps.
