2.38-pound MacBook Air
Unveiled early 2015 by Apple, the 11.6″ MacBook Air Notebook is an ultra-compact notebook computer highlighting a spectacularly thin and lightweight design. This 2.38-pound MacBook Air Notebook Computer comes in a better improved version, with the lessons learned from the miniaturized iPad.
Full of Character
Characterized by its unibody aluminum enclosure, strong as it is light, because it is cut from a solid block of aluminum, with a housing that is stronger than those found on laptops built via traditional means, to say that the Air is svelte is all at once stating the obvious and understating the truth, at its thickest point the computer is only 0.68″ — it tapers down to 0.11″ at its thinnest.
Underscoring an impeccable glossy finish and LED backlight technology for enhanced image quality and energy efficiency, with a 11.6″ size, the 16:9 display features a native resolution of 1366 x 768. Up to 9 Hours of Web Browsing
The MacBook Air is simply ready to serve you, it comes with a 128GB of flash storage rather than an outdated hard drive. Flash storage doesn’t just give you a lighter, thinner computer. It also allows for remarkable battery life — up to 9 hours of web browsing and 30 days of standby time.
Computers in the MacBook Air’s weight class are commonly categorized in the “netbook” class. Netbooks usually feature less-than-full-size keyboards, cramped trackpads, and low-powered CPUs. This MacBook Air takes an exception to that. This computer features a standard-size backlit chiclet keyboard, the same as on the larger computers in the MacBook line. It also has a large multi-touch glass trackpad, giving you full control over your computer — without forfeiting ergonomics.
The computer is powered by a dual-core 5th-gen, low-voltage Broadwell 2.5 GHz Intel Core i5 processor and has 4GB of onboard 1600 MHz LPDDR3 RAM. Graphics are provided by integrated Intel HD Graphics 6000. The computer features all the amenities you expect on a Mac — a FaceTime HD webcam, dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi (also compatible with 802.11a/b/g/n), Bluetooth 4.0 and built-in stereo speakers.
The Macbook Air also offers 3 Apps to keep you optimally productive. Pages let you to make creative word documents. Numbers helps you make spreadsheets more visually insightful. Keynote allows you to construct an authoritative presentation, comprehensive with animated charts, interactive tables with cinematic effects and transitions.
This MacBook Air comes preloaded with the comprehensible Mac OS X operating system. The Mac OS X features Time Machine backup, which automatically backs up system data to an external hard drive. It also features natural scrolling, the Launchpad application launcher and support for full screen applications. Mission Control combines the functionality of Dashboard, Exposé, and Spaces — giving you a bird’s eye view of everything that is happening on your computer.
No Data Loss
You would not get to lose any data even when you forget to save a file, with the Auto Save feature on the MacBook Air. The OS tracks different versions of your documents, so you can go back to a previous draft of a document with ease. AirDrop makes it stress-free to transmit files wirelessly between computers, even if there is no central Wi-Fi network available. The revamped Mail application takes full advantage of modern widescreen displays.
And of course, you can expand the functionality of your computer system by browsing through the multitude of productivity applications, games, and other software that is available for purchase from the Mac App Store. Because the software in the store is curated by Apple, you can be sure that it is free of malware and safe to use. And, like the iOS App Store, you’ll automatically be notified when updated versions of your favourite programs are available for download.
Fashionably Thin, Light, Durable. Thank You, Flash Storage
Flash storage helps make MacBook Air incredibly thin and light – under an inch and as little as 2.96 pounds. And it takes up much less space than a traditional hard drive – about 90 percent less, in fact. That creates room for other important things, like a bigger battery. So you have a notebook that is gorgeously thin, light, and durable, it practically weighs almost nothing and runs all day long. Now that’s mobility mastered.
The Best Way to Multi-Touch on a Notebook
Multi-touch technology is an indispensable part of Apple products. It’s an immersive way to interact with your devices. And the optimal way to experience Multi-Touch on a notebook is through a trackpad. That’s specifically the case with MacBook Air. The trackpad’s spacious, all-glass surface doesn’t have a button because the whole thing is the button. And with multi-touch gestures in Mac OS X, you can interact with MacBook Air in ways that feel more intuitive and realistic than ever before
See Your QWERTY in Lights
Anyone can try to make a notebook that’s thin and light, but success comes in doing it without cutting corners. That’s why MacBook Air features a fully featured keyboard that’s just as comfortable to type on as a desktop keyboard. And the keyboard is backlit, so you can type in low-light conditions with ease. 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
A Battery That Can Get You Through the Day and the Month
Thanks to smaller components such as flash storage, Apple is able to allocate space for a bigger battery. And when the goal is to design the perfect notebook for everyday use, giving priority to the battery just makes sense. With the MacBook Air, you’ll get up to 12 hours of battery life for both web browsing and when watching iTunes movies. Put MacBook Air to sleep for more than 3 hours and it enters standby mode. That means you can come back to MacBook Air up to an entire month later and it wakes in an instant. Please note that battery life may vary depending on use
A Thing of Beauty and Durability
The MacBook Air features a unibody design for both the main enclosure and the display. Unibody construction means a higher-precision, less complex design with fewer parts. That translates to a notebook that’s exceptionally thin and light, yet durable enough to handle the rigors of everyday use. In addition, MacBook Air offers innovations like the MagSafe 2 power connector, which breaks cleanly away from the notebook if you accidentally trip over the power cord.
