MacBook Air is unbelievably thin and light. But we also designed it to be powerful, capable, durable, and enjoyable to use, with enough battery life to get you through the day. Thatís the difference between a notebook thatís simply thin and light and one thatís so much more.
Even at less than an inch thin, MacBook Air sets a pretty high standard - by making flash storage standard. Flash chips are very compact, allowing MacBook Air to be incredibly thin and light. Flash is also solid state, meaning there are no moving parts. Which makes it reliable, durable, and quiet. And it takes up much less space - about 90 percent less, in fact. That creates room for other important things, like a bigger battery. So you have a notebook that weighs almost nothing and runs for hours on a single charge. Thatís mobility mastered.
Multi-Touch technology is part of practically every Apple product. Itís the best and most personal way to interact with your devices. And the optimal way to experience Multi-Touch on a notebook is through a trackpad. Thatís precisely the case with MacBook Air. The trackpadís spacious, all-glass surface doesnít have a button because the whole thing is the button. And with Multi-Touch gestures in OS X Lion, you can interact with MacBook Air in ways that feel more intuitive and responsive than ever before.
Anyone can try to make a notebook thatís thin and light. Success comes in doing it without cutting corners. Thatís why MacBook Air features a full-size keyboard, not a condensed version of what youíre used to. When you type on the MacBook Air, itís just as comfortable as typing on a desktop keyboard. And the keyboard is backlit, so you can type comfortably even in low-light conditions. A built-in sensor detects changes in the ambient lighting and adjusts the keyboard and display brightness automatically, giving you the perfect illumination in any environment.
If you looked inside MacBook Air, youíd see something remarkable: how much space we devoted to the battery. Thatís thanks to smaller components such as flash storage. And when the goal is to design the perfect notebook for everyday use, giving priority to the battery just makes sense. With MacBook Air, you can get up to 5 hours of battery life on the 11-inch model and up to 7 hours on the 13-inch model. Put MacBook Air to sleep for more than an hour, and it enters whatís called standby mode.* That means you can come back to MacBook Air a day, a week - even up to an entire month - later, and it wakes in an instant. Time is on your side, courtesy of MacBook Air.
MacBook Air features a unibody design for both the main enclosure and the display. Unibody construction means a higher-precision, less complex design with fewer parts. And that translates to a notebook thatís exceptionally thin and light, yet durable enough to handle the rigors of everyday use.
