Apple: nuovo MacBook Air

Gennaio 15th, 2008 by Giovanni Caputo

Da 1800 a 3000 dollari per il nuovo macBook: (specifiche in inglese estratte dal sito della apple).

Purtroppo non ha il lettore cd/dvd…. e il prezzo?? Quali sono le vostre opinioni?

Size and weight

Height:
0.16-0.76 inch (0.4-1.94 cm)

MacBook Air with dimensions.

Width:
12.8 inches (32.5 cm)
Depth:
8.94 inches (22.7 cm)
Weight:
3.0 pounds (1.36 kg)

display:

The glossy 13.3-inch,

1280-by-800 resolution

The brilliance of multi-touch.

You can pinch, swipe, or rotate to zoom in on text, advance through a photo album, or adjust an image.

Thin is in the details.

The innovative now-you-see-it, now-you-don’t port hatch flips down to reveal (and closes to hide) all the ports you really need: a USB 2.0 port, a headphone jack, and a micro-DVI port that supports DVI, VGA, composite, and S-video output. Even the MagSafe power connection has been reconsidered and slimmed to fit MacBook Air

So thin yet so expansive.

MacBook Air comes with a way-more-than-generous 2GB of RAM built in — ample memory for working with your favorite applications. The 80GB hard drive provides plenty of storage space. And you have the option to upgrade to a 64GB solid-state drive, which has no moving parts for enhanced durability.

Processor and memory

Intel Core 2 Duo processors.

Intel Core 2 Duo processor with 4MB on-chip shared L2 cache running at full processor speed

  • 800MHz frontside bus
  • 2GB of 667MHz DDR2 SDRAM onboard

Built-in iSight camera.

 

The battery is slimmer.

Battery life: 5 hours wireless productivity.

The MacBook Air battery is our thinnest ever, yet it doesn’t compromise power. You can access the web wirelessly for five full hours.3

 

Without wires, you’re free to go anywhere.

Wireless with 802.11n WiFi.MacBook Air is the notebook that allows for a fully wireless lifestyle. It all starts with the fastest-available, next-generation 802.11n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR built in. And that’s just the beginning of the unprecedented wireless capabilities of MacBook Air.

 

Ahead of the curve.

In redefining thin, MacBook Air has shed something you no longer need: the optical drive. That’s because MacBook Air is built for the wireless world. So instead of watching DVDs, you can rent movies wirelessly from the iTunes Store. And instead of backing up files to a stack of discs, you can back up files wirelessly using Apple’s new Time Capsule.

However, for those times when you still need to install software on MacBook Air from a CD or DVD, a new feature called Remote Disc lets you wirelessly use or “borrow” the optical drive of a Mac or PC in the vicinity. So you can have full access to an optical drive without having to haul one around.

Remote Disc: How it works.

iMac, iMac, MacBook Air.

  1. Set up Remote Disc on a nearby Mac or PC.

    Select a nearby Mac or PC with an optical drive. On that computer, install the Remote Disc Setup software (found on the supplied Mac OS X Install DVD). It is now permanently enabled for Remote Disc.

  2. Insert the software disc you want to install.

    Insert the DVD containing the software you want to install on MacBook Air into the optical drive of the Remote Disc-enabled Mac or PC.

  3. Install the software on MacBook Air.

    In the Finder on MacBook Air, under Devices, select the icon that says Remote Disc. Click on the computer you enabled, and then double-click to open the software DVD. Now proceed with the installation just as if you had a built-in optical drive.
