Retina Display: Four Million Pixels, One Brilliant Debut
With a resolution of 2560-by-1600 for over 4 million pixels, the results are positively jaw dropping. Images take on a new level of detail and realism.Text is sharp and clear. And True Tone technology automatically adjusts the white point of the display to match the colour temperature of your environment - making web pages and email look as natural as the printed page. With 48 percent more colours than the previous generation, everything you see is rich and vibrant. The display glass goes right to the edge of the enclosure, making the borders 50 percent thinner than before. So you can focus on what's on your screen. And you're going to love what you see.

Thunderbolt 3: One for All, All in One
Thunderbolt 3 combines ultra-high bandwidth with the ultra-versatility of the USB-C industry standard to create one revved-up universal port - and MacBook Air has two of them. Thunderbolt 3 integrates data transfer, charging, and video output in a single connector, delivering up to 40Gb/s of throughput for twice the bandwidth of Thunderbolt 2. Existing devices are easily connected with a cable or adapter. And Thunderbolt 3 is reversible, so no matter how you plug it in, it's always right side up.
