Our loooooooooooooooongest battery life.
With jaw-dropping battery life—up to 18 hours—MacBook Air delivers the power to work where, how, and for as long as you want.²

Mac works with IT.
Set up devices from anywhere with zero-touch deployment. And manage Mac at any scale with mobile device management.

Reason #5

4 percent of the world’s top innovators deploy Mac at scale.⁴

Reason #8
Excel. Zoom. Slack. And so much more.
All the business apps you need run beautifully on Mac—from Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace to SAP and Dropbox.⁵ And thanks to the Apple M1 chip, popular iPhone and iPad apps for work can now run on Mac, too.

Reason #9
Security’s built right in.
Mac is the most secure personal computer on the planet, thanks to built-in features like hardware-verified secure boot, on-the-fly encryption, Touch ID, and Gatekeeper.

Reason #10
