If you’re hungry for performance and durability, then an “Apple” is just what you need. The MacBook Air may not be red or big, but you won’t find any “Apple” juicier than this classy line of ultraportable notebook computer. For those who believe that size does matter, they probably haven’t laid their fingers or eyes on this class-act, a thin and light machine that has just enough muscle to handle anything you throw at it. With the MacBook Air, Apple has proven that greatness can come in all sizes.
A Battery that just Won’t Quit
When we say that MacBook Air is the juiciest “Apple” out there, we aren’t kidding. Crazy as it may sound, the 11-inch model of the machine has a battery life of up to 9 hours, while the 13-inch model can keep running for a staggering 12 hours before stopping to catch its breath. This basically means your MacBook Air won’t call it a day until you do. That, however, is not all. Putting your machine to sleep for more than three hours sends it to standby mode, which conserves its battery life for up to 30 days. By turning on Power Nap, it continues to receive email and calendar invitation even while asleep. Exaggerated and unbelievable as it all may sound, this is the truth that Apple delivers with its latest line of its notebook computer.
Timeless Design with Mouth-Watering Features
Apple may not be perfect, but one area where you’d rarely find it faltering is the design of its products. With MacBook Air, it hits the nail right on its head yet again. The signature class is prominent on the machine, with the large, glass-surface touchpad making the experience enjoyable on one hand, while the excellent back-lit keyboard with a layout considered impeccable by many adding to its overall appeal on the other. To expand the MacBook Air experience beyond its physical boundaries, Apple has included the Thunderbolt port and two USB 3 ports, making it possible for you to connect it to the latest USB 3 and USB 2 devices, as well as the Apple Thunderbolt Display. This effectively transforms the portable machine into a complete workstation within a matter of seconds.
Performance Meets Endurance
An ant is capable of carrying 50 times its body weight. Why are we bringing this up out of blue? Well, MacBook Air manages to accomplish something quite similar in terms of performance and endurance. Powered by fourth-generation Intel Core i5 and i7 processors and up to 8GB of RAM, the ultraportable notebook is no push-over. The processors ensure the delivery of high performance while consuming way less power than what one would expect. As a result, not only is the machine capable of doing pretty much everything, but it also does it for a much longer time. If you’re into gaming or find yourself indulging in other graphic-intensive tasks, the MacBook Air lets you do these things with ease, thanks to the Intel HD Graphics 5000 processor. It may not be as powerful as the recent NVIDIA GPUs, but that’s an avoidable trade-off for a long battery life.
It’s Fast. It’s Flash. It’s the Storage
In order to make MacBook Air as light as it is, Apple has designed it around flash storage. This further boosts its responsiveness, as the PCIe-based flash storage happens to be nine times faster than a traditional 5400-rpm notebook hard drive. As a result, what you get is an ultraportable machine that is zippier than ever.
If you’ve been on a quest to get your hands on a machine that is powerful, fast, ultra-light, and runs one of the most stable operating systems in the world, then MacBook Air is what you’ve been searching for all this time. The fact that it’s made by Apple only adds to its value, reliability, and ability to live up to the expectations, no matter how high they may be.
