Apple MacBook Air with Intel Core 2 Duo Processor

This MacBook Air is powered by the Intel Core 2 Duo processor. This is a dual-core processor running at 1.4GHz.  It has an 800MHz system bus and 3MB of shared L2 cache.  This model comes with 2 GB of DDR3 SDRAM and can be expanded to a maximum of 4GB.

The screen is an 11.6″ LED-backlit widescreen display with a resolution of 1366×768.  It’s driven by the NVIDIA GeForce 320M graphics card with 256MB of DDR3 SDRAM shared with main memory. Shared memory means it won’t perform that great on games, but you’re not buying  a Mac to play the latest games anyway.

For storage you get 64GB of flash storage, which is the main reason you’re buying this computer.  It does not have any optical drive internally, but you can pay an exorbitant price to Apple to get an external SuperDrive. This laptop does not have a media card reader slot.

For networking you get a built-in high-speed AirPort Extreme wireless LAN adapter compatible with 802.11 a/b/g/n standards.  It does not have any wired networking options. This Air does support Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR at least.

External ports include 2 high-speed USB 2.0 ports, 1 Mini DisplayPort, 1 headphone and 1 microphone slot. Not exactly the most expandable laptop, is it? Other features include a built-in FaceTime webcam and omnidirectional microphone for video chatting and Web conferencing. You also get a glass multitouch trackpad with pinch, rotate and other multitouch gestures.

For software this MacBook Air comes installed with OS X Snow Leopard and all its various accouterments like iLife ’11.

This laptop measures 7.6″x11.8″x0.7″ and weighs 2.3 pounds.  Definitely, one of the most portable laptops out there. The Lithium-polymer battery can provide up to 5 hours of unplugged power.

You can find the underpowered Apple MacBook Air MC505LL/A for around $1000.
