MacBook Air – The Future of the notebook


MacBook Air combines the power of Mac with the portability of iPad to create the next generation of MacBooks. It is available in both 11- and 13-inch models and weighs as little as 2.3 pounds (1.06 kg), making it the lightest, most portable Mac ever. It uses the same flash storage technology as iPad to deliver instant-on responsiveness and long battery life. In addition, MacBook Air features a widescreen high-resolution display, a full-size keyboard, a glass Multi-Touch trackpad and a built-in FaceTime camera. Powered by high-performance graphics and fast Intel processors, MacBook Air allows you to accomplish daily tasks with speed and ease.
The new MacBook Air, the ultimate everyday notebook featuring the latest Intel Core processors, flash storage, Thunderbolt I/O, and a backlit keyboard.

Both the 11- and 13-inch MacBook Air now feature the latest generation of Intel processors, the Core i5 and i7. With speeds up to 1.8GHz and faster memory, the new MacBook Air gains up to 2.5x the processing performance over the previous generation. MacBook Air also features the Intel HD Graphics 3000 processor, which includes an on-chip engine for video encoding and decoding. That means you experience video playback and FaceTime calls that are smoother, more responsive, and more true to life.

Thunderbolt I/O : Lightning Fast Data Transfer
Thunderbolt technology brings lightning-fast data transfer and more expansion capabilities to MacBook Air. Connect the new Apple Thunderbolt Display and do even more with a notebook that already does it all. With one port, MacBook Air gives you access to a world of high-speed peripherals capable of transferring data up to 12 times faster than FireWire 800 and up to 20 times faster than USB 2.0. Or use the Thunderbolt port to connect the new Apple Thunderbolt Display and transform your ultracompact MacBook Air into a complete desktop workstation. Power over 4 million eye-popping pixels while enjoying some major benefits: Gigabit Ethernet, FireWire 800, an additional Thunderbolt port, three USB ports, a FaceTime HD camera, 2.1 stereo sound, and a built-in microphone.

Thin Light Durable and Backlit Keybaord


MacBook Air is surprisingly slim, yet it features a full-size keyboard that makes typing exceptionally comfortable. And now the keyboard is backlit, so you can type with ease even in low light. A built-in sensor detects changes in the ambient lighting and adjusts the keyboard and display brightness automatically, giving you the perfect illumination in any environment.

The Multi Touch Trackpad
The Multi-Touch gestures in OS X Lion make everything you do on MacBook Air more intuitive, direct, and fun. And the spacious Multi-Touch trackpad is perfectly designed for them, whether it’s a three-finger swipe to activate Mission Control or a four-finger pinch to see all your apps in Launchpad. Gesture responses in Lion are smooth and realistic. So when you’re scrolling up and down a web page or swiping from one full-screen app to another, it’s almost like you’re touching what you’re seeing.

Long Lasting Battery
If you looked inside MacBook Air, you’d see something remarkable: how much space we devoted to the battery. That’s thanks to smaller components such as flash storage. And when the goal is to design the perfect notebook for everyday use, giving priority to the battery just makes sense. With MacBook Air, you can get up to 5 hours of battery life on the 11-inch model and up to 7 hours on the 13-inch model.

Connectivity
When you’re wireless, you’re truly mobile. That’s why MacBook Air features 802.11n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 technology. Wireless connectivity allows you to browse the web, send email, and print documents no matter where you are.4 MacBook Air weighs almost nothing, so you can go from room to room, dorm to dorm, or cubicle to cubicle and stay connected. Two USB 2.0 ports, an SD card slot (on the 13-inch model), and a headphone port give you plenty of options. And the Thunderbolt port connects to the new Apple Thunderbolt Display and high-speed Thunderbolt peripherals such as external hard drives.
