The 13.3 inch screen is backlit by LED and has an impressive resolution of 1440 x 900 pixels. Connectivity wise, it has the usual Wireless 802.11n inside along with Bluetooth 2.1+EDR. An Apple USB Ethernet adapter is also available, but sold separately. Battery life has been increased on this model to around 7 hours of usage with WiFi enabled.

Price wise, this particular model costs $1,299.00 for the 128GB model and $1,599.00 for the 256GB model. Increasing the RAM and processor in each will also bump up the price a little.

  1. WOW that thing looks thin! I see it’s up next to an iPhone. WIth the Rover Puck 4G, you can get 4G internet on your Air and iPhone and 6 other devices at the same time. I think 4g is a must on new gadgets… it’s the fastest internet around. The Puck is also prepaid so you don’t have to lock into any contracts. And did I mention it’s unlimited downloads?? Try getting that on your 3G plan. Try it fo’ sho’.
