Introducing the new MacBook Air, the most mobile Mac in every way, shape, and form. It features all-flash storage, a Multi-Touch trackpad, a long-lasting battery, a high-resolution display, an Intel Core 2 Duo processor, and NVIDIA graphics. All inside a unibody enclosure thats light, thin, and strong enough to handle all your everyday tasks and then some, whether youre on the couch, in a lecture hall, or at a conference. Its mobility mastered.
Everything we've learned has come down to this.
We learned a lot from iPad. The new MacBook Air is proof. Its designed around all-flash storage for better responsiveness and reliability. It features a trackpad with full Multi-Touch support. And though its incredibly thin and light, its large battery gives you portable power that lasts for hours.
Advanced technology from iPad. Taken to the air.
A truly mobile device needs to be light, thin, and strong enough to take with you wherever you go. It also needs to perform quickly, spring to life instantly, and have enough battery power to keep up with you. It should have no spinning hard drive, no optical drive, and no unnecessary parts. All of that is true of iPad. And now, its true of Apples most mobile notebook ever: MacBook Air.
Out-of-the-box flash storage.
MacBook Air continues its legacy of firsts with something entirely new for any Mac: flash storage. Standard. In fact, the new MacBook Air is designed completely around flash storage. But in a totally different way. Typically, flash storage is housed in a package thats the same size as a conventional hard drive. Yet the flash chips themselves occupy a very small portion of that housing. Getting rid of the hard drive enclosure and using only the parts that matter — the actual flash chips — frees up about 90 percent more space. And just like that, theres room for other important things, like a bigger battery. Now you have a notebook that weighs practically nothing and runs for hours on a single charge. Thats mobility mastered.
The best way to Multi-Touch on a notebook.
No one knows Multi-Touch technology better than Apple. Introduced with the very first iPhone and taken even further with iPad, Multi-Touch is now part of practically every Apple device. Its simply the best and most personal way to interact with your software. And the optimal way to experience Multi-Touch on a notebook is through a trackpad. Thats precisely the case with MacBook Air. Now you can perform more gestures than you have fingers on a spacious, all-glass surface thats smooth to the touch.
