apple did opet.MacBook Air with new and exiting features that are important for a Subnotebook: 13.3-inch display, less than 1.5 kilograms in weight and speed of the processor to 1.8 GHz without as well as extreme plošnosti.Prije thinnest notebook uses Sony's lightweight (850 grams) Vaio VGN-X505 with a 10-inch screen. But they are not built anymore.
That would be even slimmer laptop, Apple was required to omit several components. To name the biggest cut, there is only one USB port available. So, the MacBook Air can at a time or to copy images from a digital camera, copy the data to the LAN (adapter goes for about $ 35 extra), used to a DVD player (another extra) or load a USB stick, but none of these things at once at the same time. In addition, it would not be an external mouse. To cover its bases, the touchpad is made very large, one of the largest on the market. And two-finger spread trick known to the iPhone touchscreen, as well. Only time will tell if this is as appropriate on the pad, away from the screen.
during the presentation, Steve Jobs compared MacBook Air to your Sony Vaio VGN-TZ and Sony said it is too thick. To be honest, there are plenty of opportunities in the VGN-TZ, which lacks the MacBook Air: DVD-burner, modem, LAN, FireWire, memory card-slot In-Jack for Mike, ExpressCard slot-, RAM-slots to enhance your memory and so on. He should have compared Maybe MacBook Air with other Subnotebooks are designed with similar goals in mind:. Thin guys without optical drives such as the Fujitsu Siemens Lifebook Q for example,
Given the gravity of the MacBook Air's 1.36 kg, compared with a super lightweight LIFEBOOK P (1 kg), the Samsung Q40 (1.1 kg), and above all, extremely lightweight Toshiba Portégé R500, which can be reduced to 800 grams, not just sensational. Some have even managed to build a DVD recorder and still stay under 1.3 pounds, such as Fujitsu Siemens LifeBook P (10-inch screen) and the Panasonic Toughbook CF-W7.Toshiba Portégé R500 should weight a little under 1 kg with a DVD drive .
In view of performance and the MacBook Air, promised 5 hours, 37 WH Power Supply Unit puts him in a series of many competitors. Too bad the power is not replaceable. For many other Subnotebooks there are two or even three different batteries available, some of them with an additional package, most of the time instead of an optical drive. Sonys VGN-TZ last more than 6 hours with its standard battery, the LifeBook P with a high efficiency battery last more than ten hours.
If you want to work outdoors or on the road, you'll have to make do with WLAN and Hotspots, using the IEEE 802-11n draft standard. UMTS or even EDGE is not available because there is no PCMCIA card slot for adding the feature. It's a bit strange, on all other decisions bearing models with a minimum of additional UMTS modems. Apple provides Internet connectivity via Bluetooth, or cell phone, unless you have the iPhone, that does not support this feature.
