MacBook Air – as light as air


Apple. Not orange; not mango; not papaya; not banana. But Apple.
Neither it’s fruit. Haha…!!!
But it’s Apple Computer...!!!

Alright, it’s a well-known brand name that I don’t have to describe who’s Apple. I just want to mention that “here comes another interesting Apple product”.

It’s the Apple MacBook Air. (it almost can float)

It’s the world’s thinnest laptop/notebook computer.

Physical design is:
Height: 0.16-0.76 inch (0.4-1.94 cm)
Width: 12.8 inches (32.5 cm)
Depth: 8.94 inches (22.7 cm)
Weight: 3.0 pounds (1.36 kg)



It’s just 0.76 inches thick…!!! Converted to as thin as 19.304mm, if you would prefer in metrics.

It has 13.3” wide screen TFT LED backlit display, supporting millions of colours.
It’s powered by Intel Core 2 Duo Processor. Give options of either 1.6GHz or 1.8GHz.
It has touch pad is a multi-touch technologies, where you use more than one fingers to operate different scrolling and viewing functions.
It has 2GB RAM and 80GB very thing HDD.
It has built-in Camera, which is called iSight Camera.
It also claims to have battery life of up to 5 hours.
Ports available are audio out, one USB port, and Micro-DVI ports.
Never to forget is its wireless connectivity. It supports WiFi 802.11n (draft spec).
And of course it’s backward compatible with 802.11a/b/g.
Ah ha…there’s Bluetooth as well (there’s no reason for MacBook Air miss it).

To me, the most important feature of MacBook Air is its Keyboard.
It’s an backlit-keyboard. Yes, so I don’t have to shine lights on keyboard to hunt for the right keys I want to type anymore. I have been waiting for a laptop with this backlit keyboard feature, as I often use the laptop in dark.



Well, any missing things?
Yes. What it misses is the optical drive. There’s no optical drive in MacBook Air. But worry not, external optical drive can be connected to it anytime when needed.

Another point to take note is its speaker. It has built-in mono speaker. It’s not Stereo.

So, that wraps up the important details of the MacBook.
You may visit its website to get more details.

So, let’s enjoy its photos now (all photos from Apple Website).
