At A Glance

Apple's follow-up to the early 2008 debut of the ultraportable features faster RAM, more storage (a 128GB solid-state drive, double the capacity of the original SSD option), and improved graphics. Instead of an integrated Intel GMA X3100, the Air now features an Nvidia GeForce 9400 graphics processor (though it still shares memory with the system RAM).

Manufacturer’s Description

MacBook Air is nearly as thin as your index finger. Yet it has a 13.3-inch LED-backlit display, a full-size keyboard, and a large Multi-Touch trackpad. It?s incomparably portable ? without the ultraportable screen and keyboard compromises.
