If you’re in the market for an incredibly light, yet fully endowed laptop computer that bridges the gap between the tablet and the desktop, think about the MacBook Air. It’s the next best thing to the MacBook Pro, but costs less. As it’s “Air” moniker implies, it also travels lightly, weighing in at a just over two pounds.
The MacBook Air comes in 11- and 13-inch models. Here are some specs:
Battery life. Up to 12 hours for the 13-inch; 9 hours for the 11-inch – both translate into virtually a full work day on one charge.
Power and RAM. Fourth-generation Intel 1.3GHz dual-core processors team up with built-in 4 gigs (upgradable to 8 gigs) of RAM to run everything from multimedia to business applications.
Storage: Forget about the whirring, hot and power-hungry spinning hard drives. The MacBook Air comes equipped with lightning-fast flash storage that wakes up and runs the MacBook Air with far more storage capacity than any comparable device on the market. Both models come with 128BG or 256GB options and can be upgraded to a whopping 512GB — enough storage for just about every need.
802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth provide optimum wireless performance at about three times faster than the previous generation, along with increased range and connectivity to peripheral devices. Both models have USB and Thunderbolt ports.
Multimedia features include stereo speakers, dual microphones and a headphone port. The MacBook Air also has a built-in 720p FaceTime HD camera.
The Mavericks OSX operating system. Mavericks teams up with the MacBook Air to provide:
- a sharp HD display with multi-screen management
- power-saving features for even longer battery life
- ready-to-go productivity apps—Maps, iWorks, Calendar) at no extra cost
- cross-platform compatibility to Windows 8.1 via Parallels, VMware, etc.
