Overall Review

Apple MacBook Air 13 Inch Core i5 MC966HN/A is a refurbished member of the MacBook Air family, which is a line of ultraportable Macintosh notebook computers  by Apple. The first sibling in the same line was marketed as the World's thinnest Notebook and the newer one comes with more ergonomic design that provides comfort to its users. This laptop is thin, light and has a decent battery capacity that can keep the device working for long hours. This is the third generation device by Apple that claims to have Ivy Bridge chipset by Intel and holds almost the same design like the previous model. The notebook has wedge shaped chassis that tapers nearly to a sharp point. This is a beautiful and portable device that carries a size of 325mm x 227mm x 3 – 17mm and 1.35Kg of weight. Apart from being unbelievably thin and light, this notebook is powerful, capable, durable and enjoyable to use, with battery that longs last. The credit for its thin and light body goes to the standard flash storage chips that are very compact and provides enough room for other important things. All the Apple products are well known for their quality multi touch technology and so is this device blessed with. In case of a notebook, the best way to experience Multi touch facility is through a trackpad that is spacious and has all glass surface. The multi touch gestures in OS X Lion, one can interact with MacBook Air in ways that feel more intuitive and responsive than ever before. There are no buttons on the trackpad because the whole surface of the trackpad acts like a big button. The Multi-Touch gestures in OS X Lion make everything on MacBook Air more intuitive, direct, and fun. And the spacious Multi-Touch trackpad is perfectly designed for them, whether it is a three-finger swipe to activate Mission Control or a four-finger pinch to see all the applications in Launchpad. Gesture responses are smooth and realistic. So when one is scrolling up and down a web page or swiping from one full-screen application to another, it is almost like the users are touching what they are seeing. With a single press on the trackpad users can click anywhere or, with Tap to Click enabled, they can also tap the trackpad, double click gets enabled when one press down two times anywhere, to magnify a web page or a PDF file, double tap the trackpad with two fingers, with two fingers sliding up or down, one can scroll through documents, websites, and more, to navigate the current page, a swipe will do everything and a swipe on the trackpad gives a bird's eye view of everything running on the vibrant screen of MacBook Air. The device has, as obvious, QWERTY keyboard, which in no way an exception, but the spacious keys along with the backlighting makes it somewhat exceptional. MacBook Air features a unibody design for both the main enclosure and the display. Unibody construction means a higher-precision, less complex design with fewer parts. And that translates to a notebook that’s exceptionally thin and light, yet durable enough to handle the rigors of everyday use. In terms of design, the computer features a glossy LED backlit display and a full-size keyboard, as well as a large trackpad that responds to iPad-related Multi-Touch gestures such as pinching, swiping, and rotating. The device has aluminium unibody, silver bezel around the screen and a similar set of physical ports on both sides where the right is the home for an SD card slot, a USB port v.3.0 port and a thunderbolt. On the left side, one will find another USB v.3.0 port, a MagSafe 2 power port, a microphone and a 3.5mm universal headphone jack. The power button is placed on the keyboard to provide comfort to its users. The two USB ports are capable of transfering files at a superfast speed up to 5Gbps whereas the thunderbolt port delivers up to 10Gbps of speed. The flash storage not only makes MacBook Air a portable and lighter device than any other traditional notebooks, it also provides faster access to data and gives instant-on capability. Available up to 512GB, this next-generation flash storage is up to four times faster than a traditional 5400rpm notebook hard drive and faster than the previous generation MacBook Air. Whenever one flip open MacBook Air, it starts up in seconds and even after a month in standby mode, the screen springs to life, that too from the same page where one has left. Also the applications launch very quickly and with no moving parts, flash storage stays quiet. With the lightning-fast Thunderbolt port, one can connect their MacBook Air to the latest devices and displays, like the Apple Thunderbolt Display, and the USB ports provides 10 times faster speed than USB v.2.0. With just a few connections, MacBook Air transforms from an ultraportable notebook to a complete workstation. A pair of stereo speakers is hidden within the unibody enclosure that provides amazing and clear sound output. Like the other Apple products, this notebook is also blessed with iCloud application that very easily and quickly sync the various iOS devices of users and provide them comfort by keeping the daily used stuff up to date on all the devices.
