New MacBook Air Released
TODAY Apple releaseda new MacBook Air. With this new version of the MacBook Air, you get several things. These include new Intel cores, longer lasting battery, different ports on your laptop and much more.
First, the new MacBook Air is much faster. They have included the latest and most up-to-date Intel core processors that are out there. Apple is claiming that these new processors will increase the speed of the MacBook Air by up to 2.5 times. The MacBook Air also features the Intel HD Graphics 3000 processor, this includes an on-chip engine for video encoding and decoding. That means you experience video playback and FaceTime calls that are smoother, more responsive, and more true to life.
Second, it will feature the ThunderBolt port.This port gives you access to a world of high-speed peripherals capable of transferring data up to 12 times faster than FireWire 800 and up to 20 times faster than USB 2.0. Or use the Thunderbolt port to connect the new Apple Thunderbolt Display and transform your ultracompact MacBook Air into a complete desktop workstation. This will make data transferring so much faster.
Third, ALL Flash Storage. Some of the devices like iPhone and iPad have already demonstrated the advantages of flash storage: reliability, speed, and efficiency. So they decided to use flash storage in the MacBook Air. With flash, your computer starts up very fast and accesses data quickly. Flash also gives MacBook Air the astonishing ability to remain in standby mode for up to 30 days. This means that you can open your MacBook Air and it will jump to life.
Next, there will be a backlit keyboard. As incredibly compact as MacBook Air is, it still manages to fit a full-size keyboard that makes typing as natural as it is comfortable. And now the keyboard is backlit, so you can type with ease in even the dimmest light. A built-in ambient light sensor detects changes in lighting conditions and adjusts the display and keyboard brightness automatically. From a seat in a sunny café to a seat on a cross-country red-eye, so you’ll always have the perfect lighting for any environment.
After that, they included a Multi-Touch trackpad. The Multi-Touch gestures in OS X Lion make everything you do on MacBook Air more intuitive, direct, and fun. And the spacious Multi-Touch trackpad is perfectly designed for them, whether it’s a three-finger swipe to activate Mission Control or a four-finger pinch to see all your apps in Launchpad. Gesture responses in Lion are smooth and realistic. So when you’re scrolling up and down a web page or swiping from one full-screen app to another, it’s almost like you’re touching what you’re seeing.
The sixth thing that they have added is minor for some people, it is the high resolution display and stereo speakers. The 11-inch MacBook Air features a resolution equal to that of your typical 13-inch notebook, while the 13-inch MacBook Air wows with a resolution equivalent to a typical 15-inch notebook. This is something that I feel most people will not notice.
The last thing that I am going to cover in this article is the long lasting battery. Because of using the space-saving flash storage there is room left for a bigger battery. With this battery you get up to 5 hours of battery life on a single charge on the 11-inch model and up to 7 hours on the 13-inch model. Put MacBook Air to sleep, and it enters standby mode to conserve battery life for up to 30 days. When you come back to your MacBook Air and open it up, it is on in a blink of an eye.
Some of the other things that Apple has talked about has either not changed or they are so small changes.
I hope you enjoyed this article.
