New Apple MacBook Air 13″ Inch Laptop Unboxing & startup Quick Tour First Look Review

40 Comments



Apple’s MacBook Air has established itself
as the benchmark for thin and light laptops in recent years, and its upgrade to Intel
Core chips since 2011 has given it the performance boost to match its sleek design and build. The latest 11in and 13in models launched by
Apple in June are pretty much the same on the outside as the 2011 edition, aside from
the addition of dual microphones on the left-hand side. Meanwhile, OS X Lion has been updated
to Mountain Lion — although you’ll have to wait until the autumn to get hold of a MacBook
Air running the latest Mavericks version, but Apple has made some changes to the battery
to increase supply time. Even though the MacBook Air is stick-thin
and feather-light, build quality is superb, making it extremely portable & sturdy. Another
key area where the MacBook Air surpasses the majority of its Windows-based counterparts
is the keyboard and trackpad. The trackpad itself is huge, and more than adequate to
carry out swiping and pitching comfortably. The only real downside is the click-anywhere
feature, which can be a little bit inconsistent. The first downside to get out the way is that,
sadly, Apple hasn’t added a Retina screen to the MacBook Air. Retina screens offer a
resolution up to 2880×1800 on the 15in MacBook Pro models, delivering more screen real estate
with amazing colour and definition. However, adding Retina would have likely added cost
to the MacBook Air, and decreased battery life. The display offers sharp colours and brightness,
and isn’t very reflective compared to many laptop models we have seen, so you won’t get
screen glare. The ambient sensor is also a great touch as it automatically adjusts the
brightness of the screen and lighting of the keyboard, meaning you can use the MacBook
Air in a dark room and still easily see all the keys and screen.
The paper-thin chassis simply doesn’t allow for anything more than a couple of USB 2.0
ports, a single Thunderbolt connector and headphone jack. The MacBook Air has been designed
for portability, so it’s necessary to chop features like optical drives and even an Ethernet
port. The lack of an SD card reader in the 11in
model may be a problem for some users who regularly use the format to store files, although
Apple does sell an SD card adapter. Out-of-the-box installation takes just a few
minutes, and simply requires a Mac ID to be created, internet configured and then you’re
off. You can also replicate content from an older MacBook onto the new model, which will
make the process of getting all your files and favourites even smoother, although this
will add time to the setup process.

    Don't buy this older 2012 model now, as its price will be lower in a couple months when the new model comes out. You will get much better specs with that one

  8. JEWELLERYTRADE says:

    Someone inform Zinny Kylea of "Moore's law"
    We know the next one will have better specs, we have known since the Intel co-founder Mr Moore announced it in 1965? Why tell us something we have known for 48 years? True story!
