Mac Book Air Review - Is It Really That Good?

May 21, 2008
The MacBook Air is one hot selling laptop. The Mac Book Air is Apple's new Ultra Light, Ultra Thin notebook. Although this isn't the first ultra thin notebook to hit the market (the first was the X505 from Sony in 2003), this is probably the most hyped.

The MacBook Air will find a following with on-the-go Travelers and Business people no doubt. The Air sports a wedge design that tapers from approximately 3/4" to less than a 1/4" at the front of the "wedge". The little "heavy weight" notebook weighs in at a mere 3lbs.

Other features for the on-the-go Students and Business people will find useful are:

Built-in AirPort Extreme Wi-Fi wireless networking that is IEEE 802.11A/B and C compatible
Built in BlueTooth and EDR
1 Built in USB 2.0 port
1 Micro DVI port
1 Audio Out Port
13.3 inch backlit TFT Glossy Widescreen
Intel Core 2 Duo processor with a 4MB on-chip shared L2 cache
Built in sight camera
Built in mono speaker
Omnidirectional microphone
These features and more will make the MacBook Air a hit with business traveler as well as the on-the-go student.

MacBook Air Is Green Friendly
Apples states that the MacBook Air is also Environmentally friendly. Apples product information states that the Air uses the least power of any Mac. It uses a highly recyclable aluminum case, Mercury free LCD display and arsenic free glass, PVC free internal cables, most of the packaging is recyclable plus the MacBook Air meets Energy Star requirements. The MacBook Air also received a Silver rating from EPEAT.

What Comes With the MacBook Air
The MacBook Air ships with a Micro DVI to DVI adapter, a Micro DVI to VGA adapter, a cleaning and polishing cloth, MagSafe power adapter, Install and Restore DVD's plus full documentation. If the Mac Book Air has a fault, it's that it doesn't come with some of the standard items that other light weight notebooks come with. But it's a Mac and it's air light, so we can put up with some things not being available to us..right?

According to Steve the new MacBook Air's will not start shipping for another 2 weeks. Only time will tell whether or not the MacBook Air will be the light weight power house that it has been hyped to be, but with all the features packed into this 3lb giant, it's certainly off to a good start! Keep watching for a full review of the Macbook Air when mine arrives!
