MacBook Air Revealed

Yesterday, Apple revealed it’s latest goodies to be made available. This time the winner of the show was the MacBook Air which is a seriously slim MacBook with the option of a flash based hard drive. The MacBook Air has some impressive features with the size of the thing being most noticeable. It measures just 0.76″ thick which is slim compared to a Sony Vaio and it weighs just 3 pounds. The screen is 13.3″ and wide-screen backlit with LED’s. Resolutions range from 720 x 480 up to 1280 x 800. An integrated 37-watt-hour lithium-polymer battery powers the MacBook Air which can keep it running for 5 hours with wireless enabled. That alone is a fairly impressive number. The processors options are either 1.6Ghz or 1.8Ghz and the unit comes standard with an 80GB HDD with the option for a 64GB SSD drive. SSD is the way to go, but does add a hefty number on to the total ($1299 extra). If you can afford to splash our for the extra .2 GHZ and SSD then do it.


For connectivity you are looking at Wireless 802.11n draft specification with backwards compatibility for a/b/g. Bluetooth is 2.1 + EDR (Enhanced Data Rate).


Another nice feature about the MacBook Air is the backlit keyboard and a multi touch mouse pad which works in the same way a multi touch screen on the iPhone works. If you want to zoom, you just gesture with moving your fingers apart etc…

Overall it’s a very nice MacBook and well worth pre ordering.
