Apple’s MacBook Air – A Look
Every year during the Macworld, Apple has some great products to launch . Last year, they really captured the market with the introduction if iPhone, this time Steve Jobs has introduced MacBook Air – a slim 13.3 inch laptop that weights around 3 pounds, is 0.16-0.76 inches thick and 8.9 inches deep.
Similar to existing MacBooks, it has a backlit keyboard with light sensors that can adjust according to brightness. It has a display resolution of 1280 x 800. Similar to iPhone, the touchpad is capable of recognizing and using multi touch. As for processing, it has an Intel C2D processor running at around 1.6-1.8 GHz. It features 2 GB of DDR2 667 RAM. As for storage, the normal HDD is a slim version of PATA 4200 RPM drive while it also has an option of using a 64 GB SSD card for storage purpose. It has a built in AirPort extreme wireless networking along with Bluetooth 2.1 +EDR. It has battery life of around 5 hrs when used with SSD storage.
Although, the features looks great, i think it is definitely going to lose out on its price. The basic version is available for around $1798 and the full fledged one will cost more than $3000 . The design is definitely beautiful but i think there are better options available for the same price. What do you guys think ?
