The Apple MacBook Air MD711LL/A is an ultra-light weight computer with power and style designed for all users. The system is defined by its unibody aluminum enclosure. At its thickest point, the computer is only 0.68 inches -- it tapers down to 0.11 inches at its thinnest. The system has 128GB of flash storage instead of an old-fashioned hard drive. That gives impressive battery life -- up to 7 hours of web browsing and an amazing 30 days of standby time.
Small notebooks typically feature less-than-full-size keyboards, cramped trackpads, and low-powered CPUs. This computer features a standard-size backlit chiclet keyboard. It also has a large multi-touch glass trackpad, giving you full control over your computer -- without sacrificing ergonomics. The computer is powered by an Intel Core i5 processor and has 4GB or 8GB of onboard RAM, and graphics are provided by integrated Intel HD Graphics 5000 with 384 MB VRAM . The computer features all the amenities you expect on a Mac -- a FaceTime HD webcam, dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi (also compatible with 802.11a/b/g/n), Bluetooth 4.0 and built-in stereo speakers.
Intel Core i5 Processor
MacBook Air features the Intel Core i5-4250U dual-core processor and it weighs next to nothing. Applications run faster and more efficiently than before. So everything you normally do on a computer you can do even quicker. Send e-mail, write reports, create presentations, touch up photos, edit home movies, and all the little (and big) tasks in between. And since the Core i5 CPU features a graphics processor with an on-chip engine for video encoding and decoding, you'll notice longer battery life when watching iTunes movies or making FaceTime video calls.
Devices like iPhone and iPad have already demonstrated the advantages of flash storage: reliability, speed, and efficiency. So the decision to use flash storage in an ultracompact notebook like MacBook Air made perfect sense. With flash, your computer starts up in almost no time and accesses data quickly. Flash also gives MacBook Air the astonishing ability to remain in standby mode for up to 30 days. Which means your MacBook Air snaps to in an instant, whether you open it tomorrow, next week, or next month.
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, you'll always have the perfect lighting for any environment.
The Multi-Touch gestures in OS X 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 Yosemite 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.
FaceTime Camera. Your Smile Goes for Miles
The wafer-thin MacBook Air display houses something pretty huge: the FaceTime camera. It's so thin -- even thinner than the camera on iPhone 4 -- you barely notice it, but it's incredibly capable. Using the FaceTime for Mac app, you can make video calls with anyone who has a Mac, iPad, iPhone, or a camera-equipped iPod touch.
Stereo Speakers. Heard but Not Seen
Despite its compact form, MacBook Air delivers full stereo sound. Space-efficient design inside the enclosure allows for the placement of left and right speakers that project sound through the keyboard. So you're able to enjoy a richer audio experience while chatting online, watching TV shows, listening to music, or playing games.
Since space-saving flash storage leaves room for a bigger battery, you can devote more time to the things you enjoy most. Things like browsing the web, editing photos, and watching videos. You'll get up to 7 hours of battery life on a single charge. 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's on in an instant.
When you're wireless, you're truly mobile. That's why MacBook Air features 802.11n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 technology. Wireless connectivity allows you to browse the web, send e-mail, and print documents no matter where you are. MacBook Air weighs almost nothing, so you can go from room to room, dorm to dorm, or cubicle to cubicle and stay connected. Being wireless also means you can download apps from the Mac App Store anytime you want. With thousands of Mac apps available for download with just a few clicks, you don't have to bother with going to the store to buy software on disc or worry about a growing pile of CDs and DVDs. Apps download instantly right on your Mac. If plugged in is what you want to be, MacBook Air has you covered there, too. Two USB 2.0 ports, an SD card slot, and a headphone port give you plenty of options. And the Thunderbolt port connects to the Apple Thunderbolt Display and high-speed Thunderbolt peripherals such as external hard drives.
