The photo you’re looking at above could be passed off as the MacBook Air on first glance, well, actually on many glances but in reality it’s actually a MacBook Air clone by a company in China called Shenzhen Technology, who apparently insists that the device is real and not a photoshopped image, and is being tested by foreign companies as an OEM unit.
In terms of specs it apparently is made out of the same unibody piece of alloy used by Apple in their MacBook Air/Pro series, sporting dimensions and weight that seem to be very close to the original MacBook Air. With the original MacBook Air sporting dimensions of 32.4×22.7×1.94cm and weighing in at 1.36kg, the clone’s dimensions are 28×21.9×1.8cm.
Under the hood you can expect to find a 1.86GHz Intel Atom Cedar Trail with 2GB of RAM, a 32GB SSD and a 4100mAh battery. It too will sport a 13.3” display, but unlike the MacBook Air’s 13.3” model, the clone’s max resolution is only at 1366×768. It will come with 2 USB ports, HDMI out and an SD card reader. No word on pricing and is expected to go on sale in China in November. We have to admit that if this device is for real, not only does it look good but its specs aren’t all too horrible either.
