Light, small, and powerful, the all new MacBook Air.
Flash storage is standard in every MacBook Air. Because flash chips are very small, MacBook Air notebooks are incredibly thin and light. Flash is also solid state, meaning there are no moving parts, which makes it reliable, durable, and quiet. And because Apple places the flash chips directly on the logic board, they take up much less space. That creates room for other important things, like a bigger battery. So you have a notebook that weighs almost nothing and runs for hours on a single charge.
Multi-Touch technology is part of practically every Apple product. The trackpad’s spacious, all-glass surface doesn’t have a button because the whole thing is the button. And with new Multi-Touch gestures in OS X Lion, you can interact with MacBook Air in ways that feel more intuitive and realistic than ever before.
MacBook Air features a full-size keyboard, not a condensed version of what you’re used to. When you type on the MacBook Air, it’s just as comfortable as typing on a desktop keyboard. And now the keyboard is backlit, so you can type comfortably even in low-light conditions. A built-in sensor detects changes in the ambient lighting and adjusts the keyboard and display brightness automatically, giving you the perfect illumination in any environment.
If you were to look inside MacBook Air, you’d see something remarkable: how much space Apple devoted to the battery. That’s thanks to smaller components such as flash storage. And when the goal is to design the perfect notebook for everyday use, giving priority to the battery makes sense. Put MacBook Air to sleep for more than an hour, and it enters standby mode. That means you can come back to MacBook Air a day, a week, even up to an entire month later, and it wakes in an instant.
MacBook Air features a unibody design for both the main enclosure and the display. Unibody construction means a higher-precision, less complex design with fewer parts. And that translates to a notebook that’s exceptionally thin and light, yet durable enough to handle the rigors of everyday use.
