MacBook Air 13" Early 2015 (Grade B)
The Apple MacBook Air "Core i5" 1.6 11-Inch (Early 2015/Broadwell) features a 14-nm "Broadwell ULT" 1.6 GHz Intel "Core i5" processor (5250U) with two independent processor "cores" on a single chip, a 3 MB shared level 3 cache, and an "integrated" Intel HD Graphics 6000 graphics processor that shares system memory.
This all is packed in a razor thin (0.11-0.68 inch), 2.3 pound, aluminum case with an integrated 720p "FaceTime HD" webcam, a backlit full-size keyboard and an 11.6" widescreen TFT LED backlit active-matrix "glossy" display (1366x768 native resolution).
Connectivity includes 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, analog audio out, a single "Thunderbolt" 2 port, and two USB 3.0 ports.
Compared to its predecessor, this model looks effectively identical, but has a more advanced processor and architecture, more advanced graphics, longer reported battery life, and Thunderbolt 2 support. It has some different identifiers, too.
