Apple has just lifted the curtain that covered its MacBook Air, where rumors of a refresh were floating around prior to its release. This refreshed device will feature instant on capability – great for the impatient types, while it probably won’t be a clincher if one were pondering over a purchase. Not only that, it measures 0.68 inches thin and tips the scales at “just” 2.9 pounds (this is the weight of the fully-featured Sony Vaio Z). Boasting an unibody construction that Apple is famous for these days, it will feature a 13.3-inch display at 1440 x 900 resolution, SSD capability, a GeForce 320M graphics chipset, 2GB RAM and an Intel Core 2 Duo 1.86GHz processor. Prices start from $1,299 and go all the way to $1,599, depending on the amount of storage you want within.
We did know that an 11.6-inch version will be released, where prices start from $999 upwards, depending on whether you want a smaller or larger capacity SSD stuffed in (64GB or 128GB, where the latter will cost another $200). Other hardware specifications of the 11.6-incher include a 1.4GHz processor and a 1366 x 768 resolution display for 2.3lbs. Which of the two would you choose from?
