THE MACBOOK AIR™
Rewiew by Lydia Miranda
The new MacBook Air™ is super thin, super portable, and is unlike any other laptop. Mac didn't get the results overnight - multiple wireless innovations with its breakthrough design. With the Air, mobile computing suddenly has a new standard. The Air is so thin (0.76"); it can fit into a manila envelope. It still has a 13.3" widescreen LED back lighted display, full-size keyboard, and large multi-touch trackpad. It's incomparably portable without the usual ultra portable screen and keyboard compromises seen on other manufacturer's attempts!
The thinness of the Air is the result of numerous size and weight shaving innovations; aluminum alloy case, a thin hard drive to hidden I/O ports to a lower-profile battery. Everything has been considered and reconsidered with thinness in mind while producing a laptop, which weights only 3 pounds!
The Air is designed and engineered to take full advantage of the wireless world - a world in which 802.11n Wi-Fi is now so fast and so available. The Air includes a bigger trackpad. You can pinch, swipe, or rotate to zoom in on text, advance through a photo album, or adjust an image.
The innovative now-you-see-it, now-you-don't port hatch flips down to reveal (and closes to hide) all the ports you really need; a USB 2.0 port, a headphone jack, and a micro-DVI port that supports DVI, VGA, composite, and S-video output. Even the MagSafe power connection has been reconsidered and slimmed to fit The Air.
The Air comes with a 2GB of RAM built in which allows multiple application usage. The 80GB hard drive provides more than enough storage space and you have the option to upgrade to a 64GB solid state drive (which has no moving parts for enhanced durability).
Unlike other portable laptops, the Air includes a built-in iSight camera. It's so smartly integrated, you hardly notice it's there. The iSight camera and iChat software make video chatting easy - anywhere there's a wireless network.
