Product Description

Everything we've learned has come to this

We learned a lot from iPad. The new MacBook Air is proof. It’s designed around all-flash storage for better responsiveness and reliability. It features a trackpad with full Multi-Touch support. And though it’s incredibly thin and light, its large battery gives you portable power that lasts for hours.

Advanced technology from iPad. Taken to the air

A truly mobile device needs to be light, thin and strong enough to take with you wherever you go. It also needs to perform quickly, spring to life instantly and have enough battery power to keep up with you. It should have no spinning hard drive, no optical drive and no unnecessary parts. All of that is true of iPad. And now, it’s true of Apple’s most mobile notebook ever: MacBook Air.

Out-of-the-box flash storage

MacBook Air continues its legacy of firsts with something entirely new for any Mac: flash storage. As standard. In fact, the new MacBook Air is designed completely around flash storage. But in a totally different way. Typically, flash storage is housed in a package that’s the same size as a conventional hard drive. Yet the flash chips themselves occupy a very small portion of that housing. Getting rid of the hard drive enclosure and using only the parts that matter — the actual flash chips — frees up about 90 per cent more space. And just like that, there’s room for other important things, like a bigger battery. Now you have a notebook that weighs practically nothing and runs for hours on a single charge. That’s mobility mastered.

The best way to Multi-Touch on a notebook

No one knows Multi-Touch technology better than Apple. Introduced with the very first iPhone and taken even further with iPad, Multi-Touch is now part of practically every Apple device. It’s simply the best and most personal way to interact with your software. And the optimal way to experience Multi-Touch on a notebook is through a trackpad. That’s precisely the case with MacBook Air. Now you can perform more gestures than you have fingers on a roomier, all-glass surface that’s smooth to the touch.

An incredible battery. Case closed (or open)

If you looked inside MacBook Air, you’d see something remarkable: how much space we devoted to the battery. Apple engineers were able to fit all the computer components on one of our smallest logic boards ever. Removing the flash storage enclosure and placing the flash chips on the logic board freed up even more room. And voila: space for a bigger battery. So you can get up to 5 hours of battery life on the 11-inch MacBook Air and up to 7 hours on the 13-inch model. And when you put MacBook Air to sleep for more than an hour, it enters what’s called standby mode. So you can come back to MacBook Air a day, a week — even up to an entire month later — and it wakes in an instant. Time is on your side, courtesy of MacBook Air.

FaceTime Camera

When MacBook Air first debuted, it was groundbreaking in many ways. Chief among them was the precision unibody enclosure. Now that same engineering process comes to the MacBook Air display. Just like the main enclosure, the display housing is crafted from a single piece of aluminium, with all the structural elements machined directly into it. Total unibody construction means a less complex design with fewer parts. That makes MacBook Air exceptionally thin and light, yet still durable enough to handle the rigours of everyday use.

    Bought ours for a discount on the Apple refurb store, as a replacement for a 5yrs old polycarbonate Macbook. We paid 14% less than the brand-new price, which softens the pain from the main negative point about this machine, which is its cost; hence why only 4-stars.

    Apart from that, it is a wonderful little computer.
    Screen resolution is good enough, bright and vibrant.
    It is delightful to handle, and oozes quality.
    Its performance in everyday operations (browsing, word processing, etc.) is equivalent to my 15" Core i7 MacBook Pro (see my Amazon review for that). I can hook it up to my Cinema Display and it works just as well as its bigger brother. In fact, because of the SSD in the MacBook Air, is boot-up and -down times are much faster.

    I also tested its performance via NovaBench. Results as follows (all based on Snow Leopard):

    MY MACBOOK PRO score= 788
    Intel Core i7 running at 2660MHz
    GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M
    RAM: 8192 MB

    OUR MAC MINI score= 367
    Intel Core 2 Duo running at 2400MHz
    GPU: NVIDIA GeForce 320M
    RAM: 4096 MB

    OUR MACBOOK AIR score: 274
    Intel Core 2 Duo running at 1400MHz
    GPU: NVIDIA GeForce 320M
    RAM: 2048 MB

    OUR OLD MACBOOK score: 247
    Intel Core 2 Duo running at 2000MHz
    GPU: GMA X3100
    RAM: 1024 MB

    You can see that it is much slower than the MacBook Pro of course, but it is not that far off our 2.4GHz Mac Mini (4GB of RAM) and actually faster than the MacBook it replaced (2.0GHz Core2Duo with 1GB of 800MHz RAM).

    So, to summarise, the little MacBook Air is no slouch unless you want to do something heavy with photo/video editing.

    As I write this, the price has been heavily discounted. I suppose it's to make up for Lion (10.7) not being present. It's not really a big deal, as you can get it from the Mac App Store for about twenty quid, whilst your in your underwear. (i.e. you don't even have to leave your home)

    This is a CRACKING machine, despite having only 2GB of RAM. It super-snappy, thanks to the SSD.

    The MacBook Air is a marvel, it's no surprise that Apple have ditched the white plastic Macbook - this is the future. (An aside: have you noticed that they've removed the optical drive from the new Mac Mini? Optical drives are so passé.

    This is last the last generation Macbook Air, the current Intel i5 is a lot faster, in most tests double the speed without any impact on battery life. Most recent Air also has a backlit keyboard. Worth paying the extra for. Other than that its an excellent notebook.

    If you can wait, the new Macbook Air with the new Intel Ivybridge processor should be out April/May time.
