Multi-Touch trackpad. It goes hand in hand with macOS.
The Multi-Touch gestures in macOS make everything you do on MacBook Air more intuitive, direct, and fun. And the spacious Multi-Touch trackpad is perfectly designed for them, whether it’s a three-finger swipe to activate Mission Control or a four-finger pinch to see all your apps in Launchpad. Gesture responses are smooth and realistic. So when you’re scrolling up and down a web page or swiping from one full-screen app to another, it’s almost like you’re touching what you’re seeing.
Backlit keyboard. What you see is what you type.
As incredibly compact as MacBook Air is, it still manages to fit a full‑size keyboard that makes typing as natural as it is comfortable. And the keyboard is backlit, so you can type with ease in even the dimmest light. A built-in ambient light sensor detects changes in lighting conditions and adjusts the display and keyboard brightness automatically. From a seat in a sunny café to a seat on a cross‑country red‑eye, you’ll always have the perfect lighting for any environment.

This is my review of the Apple MMGF2LL/A MacBook Air 13.3-Inch Laptop (8GB RAM 128 GB SSD) MMGF2.
There isn’t much I can say about this computer. I had a MacBook Pro back in 2009 that got water damage and I just had the hard drive transferred over to this brand new one (I was able to salvage photos!) and before that I had an Apple G4 when I first started in college. I’ve always loved Apple computers.
My mother, who was never tech savvy and kept her Motorola Razr phone for yearsssss past when it should have been thrown away, even loves the Apple computers. She got one after seeing my first one and now she is absolutely in love. She’s had them for years now also.
If you aren’t already an Apple user, do the research or ask an expert to make sure they are right for you. For me, they’ve always been super user-friendly. If you are an Apple user, check out the specs and see which one is right for you. Mine is used for Amazon, photos, and general interneting.
I strive to be as honest and thorough as possible when reviewing products online because I know when I shop online, I rely heavily on real-life reviews and real-life photos. I love when I find something online that looks so great… almost too good to be true… and I can find a review below with real photos and an explanation. That way I can be sure that what I’m buying really is the amazing deal I’m hoping for… orrrrr (hopefully not) a disaster disguised as a triumph[…]

Fifth-generation Intel Core processors in MacBook Air give you more time to do more things. Add that to an array of other smart and efficient features, and you have an incredible amount of power in your hands. While carrying next to nothing.
*** This ultra-efficient architecture was designed to use less power and still deliver high performance. Which means not only can you do whatever you want — you can keep doing it for longer than before. In addition, the Intel HD Graphics 6000 processor offers advanced performance you’ll especially notice with games and other graphics-intensive tasks.
*** With a Thunderbolt 2 port that’s twice as fast as the previous generation, you can connect your MacBook Air to the latest devices and displays, like the Apple Thunderbolt Display. But that’s not the whole story. MacBook Air also comes equipped with two USB 3 ports, so you can connect the latest USB 3 devices and all your USB 2 devices as well. With just a few connections, MacBook Air transforms from an ultraportable notebook to a complete workstation.
*** Dual mics. They’ll hear you loud and clear. The dual microphones in MacBook Air are great for when you want to be heard. If you’re making a FaceTime call, for example, the mics reduce background noise from behind the notebook. And when you use Dictation, they create an adaptive audio beam that intelligently adjusts to detect your voice — instead of the noise around you.
*** Two USB 3 ports (up to 5 Gbps), Thunderbolt 2 port (up to 20 Gbps), MagSafe 2 power port, SDXC card slot. Full-size backlit keyboard with 78 (U.S.) or 79 (ISO) keys, including 12 function keys and 4 arrow keys (inverted “T” arrangement) with ambient light sensor Multi-Touch trackpad for precise cursor control; supports inertial scrolling, pinch, rotate, swipe, three‑finger swipe, four-finger swipe, tap, double-tap, and drag capabilities
