Apple MacBook Air

 

Not too long ago, the MacBook Air practically stood alone in the computer landscape with its unique blend of design, size, and performance, an improvement on the thin laptop with low-voltage CPU. The MacBook Air, in turn, influenced the arrival of the...

The 13-inch MacBook Air has new Intel CPUs, better battery life, and an improved 720p Webcam, and finally adds USB 3.0 ports, while shaving $100 off the price from last year's models

The design, while strong, stays largely the same: there's no Ethernet port, and the base SSD storage option of 128GB is smaller than a standard hard drive, though common for ultrabooks

This year's MacBook Air opts for gradual improvements rather than anything revolutionary, but lowered prices continue to make it the go-to mainstream recommendation for any MacBook owner-to-be.

Apple MacBook Air/1.6GHz

 

The MacBook Air is a super-slim ultraportable laptop computer that you can slip into very thin spaces. Like anything else that Apple crafts, the Air's industrial design is phenomenal. But its beauty is little more than skin deep.

Greatly improved graphics power ; Sleek, sexy, spartan design ; Full-size keyboard ; Fantastic keyboard ; Weighs three pounds ; Bright display

Single USB port ; So slim, there's little room for inputs ; Poor battery life ; No video adapters in box ; Slower than much more affordable Apple laptops ; Unswappable battery

The Air's looks can't be denied. Its performance and expandability are whole other matters, though.

Apple MacBook Air (80GB)

 

If there was ever a product that needs no introduction, it's the MacBook Air. It represents Apple's concept of a truly next-gen notebook both in terms of what it has, and what it does not have. Of course, it's also super-thin, and brings new meaning to...

Amazingly light; snappy performance; lot of neat features

Non-removable battery; few expansion options; Remote Disc is flaky

the Air is so beautiful and easy to use that we found ourselves becoming one of those Mac people who fall in “love” with the Apple product

The MacBook Air: Thoroughly Reviewed

 

We've taken the past couple of weeks to thoroughly review the MacBook Air. Curious about how Apple's latest notebook really measures up? Read on and don't worry, we kept the Air puns to a minimum.

When Apple announced the MacBook Air, it was met with harsh criticism from many; it was almost as if the Air was being treated as the next MacBook Pro instead of an ultra portable Mac

Apple MacBook Air Review

 

Apple's latest notebook, the MacBook Air, is being hailed as the world's thinnest. At well under an inch at the thickest point, the Air offers a thin design coupled with an extremely lightweight package for a notebook that has the same basic footprint...

Works out of the box with Windows Vista (even if it does have a few hiccups) ; Thin and lightweight design that manages to stay incredibly strong ; Battery life claims are not far off from being accurate

Belches out heat like nobody's business ; No replaceable battery ; Slow charging speeds ; Almost no ports

Apple is pushing the envelope (cough cough) with the MacBook Air ... in various ways that some people will love and others will hate. On one hand they offer a super thin, lightweight design, but on the other they take away ports and give you a...

MacBook Air Review

 

They're calling it the iPod of laptops - Apple's board-sweeping answer to Sony, Dell and all the others who've been proudly strutting their ultraportables. It was enough to send David Pogue into paroxysms of delight, whinnying about "admiration for...

MacBook Air First Thoughts Review

 

The MacBook Air is quite simply the most stunning notebook we've seen in recent memory. There just isn't any way to prepare yourself for the thinness of this notebook until you hold it in your hands for the first time. A thickness of just 0.16 to 0.76...

Sure, you can fit the MacBook Air in a manila envelope ... but most consumers won't be impressed if the $1,800 laptop that comes out of the envelope isn't very powerful. Stay tuned for our full review of the MacBook Air in a few days
