New Apple MacBook Air / Intel Core i5 / 11.6 inch / 64GB / 2GB / Laptop
Apple MacBook Air 11.6' Laptop - Intel Core i5, 64GB, 2GB Memory The new Apple MacBook Air 11.6 laptop is up to 2.5x faster than before and features the latest Intel Core i5 processor, so it's even quicker to perform everyday and data-intensive tasks. Furthermore, a superfast Thunderbolt I/O port allows you to connect high-speed peripherals to the MacBook Air and transfer data up to 12x faster than FireWire 800 and 20x faster than USB 2.0, putting the MacBook Air at the heart of your super-sleek and stylish computer setup. As well as incredibly fast performance, the Apple MacBook Air looks stunning too. Its durable, unibody design is amazingly thin, light and compact, making it easy to take with you wherever you go. And with a long-lasting 5-hour battery, or 30 day standby time, you can enjoy your multimedia content, browse the web or get on with your work for longer between charges. New to the Apple MacBook Air 11.6' laptop is a backlit keyboard. It has a built-in sensor that detects changes in the ambient lighting and automatically adjusts the illumination of your full-sized QWERTY keyboard, allowing you to type easily in low-light conditions. Also making it onto the MacBook Air for the first time is Apple's brand new operating system, OS X Lion. The new operating system has more than 250 new features, which make your MacBook Air even better than before. With OS X Lion you can easily interact with your laptop using intuitive multi-touch gestures on the MacBook Air's Multi-Touch pad. You can see everything that is running on your laptop with the new Mission Control view which gives you a bird's-eye view of the programs on your system, without having to open them up individually. When you want to access your applications, Launchpad will put them conveniently in the centre of your screen for easy access. You can then view them in full-screen and flick between different apps by swiping the Multi-Touch pad. Just like the Apple iPhone and iPad 2, the ultra-light MacBook Air features flash storage, adding speed, reliability and efficiency to the laptop. With flash storage your MacBook Air starts up in a matter of seconds and accesses data quickly. This version of the Apple MacBook Air features 64GB of flash storage which you can save your multimedia, documents and files on. And all of this content is brought to life on the MacBook Air's beautifully designed high-resolution 11.6' screen. The display measures in at an incredible 4.86mm, yet it packs in so many millions of pixels that it will feel like you're looking at a much bigger screen. Films, videos and music will also benefit from powerful stereo speakers that help give you immersive entertainment. The wafer-thin MacBook Air display houses something pretty huge: the FaceTime camera. It's so thin (even thinner than the camera on iPhone 4) that you'll barely notice it, but it's incredibly capable. Using the FaceTime for Mac app, you can make video calls with anyone who has a Mac, iPad 2, iPhone 4 or the latest iPod touch.
