Apple 13 Inch MacBook Air (Intel Dual Core i5 1.8GHz, 4GB RAM, 256GB Flash Memory, HD Graphics 4000, OS X Lion)
MacBook Air is incredibly thin, light and is still durable for everyday use when your on the move. The design might be lightweight but that doesn't mean the MacBook Air compromises on processing power or battery life, it's a joy to use and has a battery life that will last you through the day.
The key to the slimline design is the flash storage, which allows it to measure less than two centimetres thin. Flash is solid state with no moving parts, which makes the MacBook Air reliable, durable and quiet. Taking around 90 per cent less space than a standard notebook hard drive, there's more space for a bigger battery to keep it running for longer. This all results in an ultra portable notebook that's lightweight and runs for hours on just a single charge.
High-speed processor, powerful graphics and a memory controller are all integrated into a single chip to deliver amazing performance. With an Intel HD Graphics 4000 processor that's 60 per cent faster than in previous models, it delivers high performance for your games, films and FaceTime calls. Flash storage gives you faster access to all your data, apps will launch quicky and your start up times will be reduced to just a few seconds. The 64GB of flash storage is up to 4x faster than a traditional 5400-rpm notebook hard drive.
The 13 inch widescreen display measures only 4.86mm thin but the high resolution and vibrant colours will give the impression that you are looking at a much larger screen. With the FaceTime HD camera you can speak to friends and family in crystal clear widescreen HD quality. You can make 720p HD calls from your MacBook Pro to any Mac that has a FaceTime HD camera, and hold video calls with anyone who has an iPad, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod touch and other Intel-based Mac computers.
MacBook Air's bigger battery means you can spend longer doing the things you love. When you browse the web, edit photos and watch videos, you can have up to seven hours of battery life on a single charge. If you put MacBook Air to sleep it enters standby mode to conserve battery life for up to 30 days, and it will be on in a flash when you next use it.
Thunderbolt technology offers a single connection which carries both DisplayPort and PCI Express signals. 12 times faster than FireWire 800 and delivering 10 Gbps of throughput in both directions, Thunderbolt gives you ultra-fast transfer speeds and enables you to connect multiple high performance peripherals by daisy chaining up to six devices together. There's also two USB 3.0 port for transferring data between devices at speeds up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0, and all your USB 2.0 devices are still compatible.
Stay connected with the latest three-stream 802.11n wireless technology and get the best performance at any range. MacBook Pro will find any available networks and you can connect to them with a click. Bluetooth wireless technology enables you to connect to all your wireless accessories.- A.D.
