This Apple MacBook Air review is aimed at would-be purchasers of one of the latest additions to the computer market by Apple. MacBook Air is one of the best laptops Apple has ever made as some of features included in it vouch for.
The MacBook Air has a chip that is Core-2 Duo in a particularly designed package with a small motherboard that reduces the thickness of the laptop. The Air has an LCD screen which is backlit using LEDs. This not only saves battery but also permits the LCD to dim much lesser or lower than the other screens (CCFL) in the case of an extra or additional battery. This model has Wireless N/B/G, 2GB RAM, Bluetooth 2.1EDR and 1.6GHz chip. It has an 80GB Drive (4200 RPM). For these prime features, you will need to pay about $1799. Fortunately, you can get this great product by obtaining discount coupons which enable you to purchase the Air and other Apple products at substantially reduced prices. The only disadvantage of this model is that it does not have an Ethernet port. You will need to buy an Ethernet jack separately.
While the thinness of the Air makes it very fashionable, all the components could not fit into it. Apart from the Ethernet port, this laptop also does not have FireWire. However, it has a monitor port which is external, a headphone jack and one USB-port. It has a camera (iSight) that can be used for video chatting or conferencing.
The MacBook Air has one speaker which is, surprisingly, louder than those found in MacBook Pro models. This speaker is built on the black keyboard under the three arrow keys. The cooling system of the MacBook Air is also quite admirable and you can place it on your laps without any fear of a temperature discomfort. The Air is narrow and light in weight making it very comfortable when typing because the wrists rest very well on the laptop. MacBook Air is high in performance, handles multitasking efficiently and also handles big files very well.
The MacBook Air line has one of the thinnest models in history. It has two categories of thickness: 0.16″ to 0.76″ which is an amazing invention. It however does not fit in small bags but can be carried to the library or on trips because it is very light in weight.
