The Apple MacBook Air weighs only 3 pounds and is less than 1" tall when shut. You've probably seen the commercial where a hand pulls one of these microthin laptops out of a manila folder.
It's amazing how Apple was able to provide you with a computer so thin, yet so filled with features and abilities.
Despite it's lack of size, the MacBook Air laptop manages to possess a stunning 13.3-inch LED-backlit widescreen display, a full-size, backlit keyboard, built-in iSight video camera for video conferencing, and a spacious trackpad. It is powered by a 1.6GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor with 4MB L2 cache, as well as standard features such as 2GB of memory, an 80GB 1.8-inch hard drive, the latest 802.11n Wi-Fi technology, and Bluetooth 2.1.
The vibrant, glossy widescreen display is energy efficient, and its spacious trackpad offers multi-touch gesture support for pinch, rotate and swipe, making it more intuitive than ever to browse and rotate photos, or to zoom into web pages in Safari. The keyboard fits inside a sleek and durable aluminum enclosure, and since it's backlit, you can use it in dimly lit environments such as airplanes, studios, or conference halls. A built-in ambient light sensor automatically adjusts the brightness of the keys as well as the display brightness for optimal visibility.
MacBook Air delivers up to five hours of battery life for wireless productivity and includes AirPort Extreme 802.11n Wi-Fi networking, which delivers up to five times the performance and twice the range of 802.11g. Apple's Migration Assistant software enables users to quickly transfer files, applications, and preferences from your old Mac to MacBook Air right over your wireless network.
The laptop includes a micro-DVI port so users can connect to Apple's gorgeous 20-inch or 23-inch Cinema Displays, extending their desktop or connect to projectors and other displays via DVI, VGA, Composite, and S-video adapters. It also has USB 2.0 for plugging in peripherals or charging an iPod or iPhone, a headphone jack, and Apple's acclaimed MagSafe Power Adapter designed especially for mobile users.
Software-wise, you'll get iLife '08, the most significant update ever to Apple's award-winning suite of digital lifestyle applications, featuring a major new version of iPhoto and a completely reinvented iMovie, both seamlessly integrated with the new .Mac Web Gallery for online photo and video sharing. You'll also enjoy Leopard, the sixth major release of the world's most advanced operating system. Leopard introduces Time Machine, an effortless way to automatically back up everything on a Mac; a redesigned Finder that lets users quickly browse and share files between multiple Macs; Quick Look, a new way to instantly see files without opening an application; Spaces, an intuitive new feature used to create groups of applications and instantly switch between them; a brand new desktop with Stacks, a new way to easily access files from the Dock; and major enhancements to Mail and iChat. .Mac members can use the new Back to My Mac feature to browse and access files on their home computer from a MacBook Air over the Internet while out on the road.
The MacBook Air is also very environmentally friendly. It's made up of an aluminum enclosure, a material highly desired by recyclers. It features Apple's first mercury-free LCD display with arsenic-free glass, and brominated flame retardant-free material for the majority of circuit boards. The internal cables are all PVC-free. In addition, MacBook Air consumes the least amount of power of any Mac, and its retail box, made primarily from 100-percent, post-consumer recycled material, is 56 percent smaller by volume than the previously smallest MacBook packaging.
MacBook Air users can also buy the companion MacBook Air SuperDrive, a compact external drive specially designed just for it. The SuperDrive is powered by MacBook Air's USB port, eliminating the need to carry a separate power adapter. However, there's little need for an optical drive now that you can wirelessly rent movies from the iTunes Store, wirelessly backup files with Time Capsule, and access the optical drives on remote PCs or Macs to wirelessly install software applications on MacBook Air.
