MacBook Air, Apple’s latest laptop, also labeled “the world’s thinnest laptop,” will be available by the end of January 2008. Weighing in at only 3 pounds and pricing at $1799, the MacBook Air is a groundbreaking innovation. It lays down the latest standards where ultra-portable computing is concerned. The fact that is indeed a very thin computer does not underestimate its computing power.
Sporting an aluminum-colored coating, the MacBook Air looks almost invisible when closed due to thin slice-thin appearance. It features a 13.3 inch LED back-lit widescreen display, a full-size keyboard and of course Apple’s famous multi-touch feature similar to the iPhone. Just like the iPhone, you spread your fingers to enlarge images or zoom out and squeeze them together to zoom in.
In addition, it has a built-in iSight web camera, a 1.8 inch 80 GB hard disk drive, also similar to the hard drive found in Apple’s iPhone, and a 1.6GHz Intel Core Duo processor and it also has the option to upgrade to a 1.8 GHz Intel Duo Core processor. The 1.8 GHZ MacBook Air laptop will be going for a whopping $3,098.
Apple’s newest lean machine also has a built-in 802.11 Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 2.1 EDR capabilities. It is designed for wireless networking or personal wireless computing and is ideal for professionals always on the move. It is very portable and can literally fit in an interoffice manila envelope.
Where images are concerned, the MacBook air has set the tone. It produces high quality images rich in color through its 1280 by 800 pixel resolution. This futuristic laptop was streamlined in many aspects in that it is also environment friendly and can be recycled easily.
