Expect everything. From a notebook that weighs almost nothing.

With the latest Intel Core i5 and i7 processors, up to 60 percent faster graphics, and faster flash storage, MacBook Air packs a lot of features into an astonishing 2.38 pounds.

  • newegg New Intel Core i5 processor. A big shift in power This 13.3” MacBook Air is outfitted with new Intel Core i5 processor. Integrating a faster processor, more powerful graphics, and a memory controller into a single chip makes for some serious performance. The new Intel HD Graphics 4000 offers up to 60 percent faster graphics — performance you’ll really notice in the games you play, the movies you watch, and the FaceTime calls you make. And MacBook Air now supports up to 8GB of memory, so you can run more memory-intensive applications without compromising performance.
  • newegg Faster all-flash storage. Even more instant gratification Part of what makes MacBook Air so responsive is that it’s designed entirely around flash storage. Not only does this make MacBook Air much lighter and more portable than traditional notebooks, it also provides faster access to data and gives you instant-on capability. This next-generation flash storage is up to 4x faster than a traditional 5400-rpm notebook hard drive and faster than the previous-generation MacBook Air. So when you flip open MacBook Air, it starts up in seconds. Even after a month in standby mode, the screen springs to life. Apps launch quickly. And with no moving parts, flash storage stays quiet.
  • newegg Long-lasting battery. Instant on even after a month off Since space-saving flash storage leaves room for a bigger battery, you can devote more time to the things you enjoy most. Things like browsing the web, editing photos, and watching videos. Get up to 7 hours of battery life on a single charge on this 13.3" MacBook. Put MacBook Air to sleep, and it enters standby mode to conserve battery life for up to 30 days. And with Power Nap — a new feature coming this summer in OS X Mountain Lion — you’ll continue to receive new email and calendar invitations while MacBook Air is asleep. When it’s connected to a power source, it can download software updates and make backups with Time Machine. So when you come back to your MacBook Air and open it up, it’s on in an instant. And everything is right there waiting for you.
  • newegg Thunderbolt and USB 3. Make some powerful connections With the lightning-fast Thunderbolt port, you can connect your MacBook Air to the latest devices and displays, like the Apple Thunderbolt Display. But that’s not the whole story. MacBook Air also comes equipped with two USB 3 ports, so you can connect the latest USB 3 devices and access a pipeline that’s up to 10 times faster than USB 2. With just a few connections, MacBook Air transforms from an ultraportable notebook to a complete workstation.
  • newegg Wireless. You’re free to go Your MacBook Air finds available Wi-Fi networks automatically and lets you connect with just a click. So you can browse the web, send email, and print documents no matter where you are. And with Bluetooth technology, you can connect MacBook Air to Bluetooth-enabled devices like speakers and headphones. Even without all the wires, you’re totally connected.
  • newegg Display and camera. Worth a second look. And a third, And a fourth Corner to corner and pixel by pixel, the MacBook Air display is both an engineering feat and a design breakthrough. The display measures a mere 4.86 millimeters (0.19 inch) thin, yet the resolution is so high, you’ll feel like you’re looking at a much larger screen. And with good reason. This 13-inch MacBook Air features a resolution equal to that of a typical 15-inch notebook. Let your friends and family see more of you with the new 720p FaceTime HD camera. With three times the resolution of the previous FaceTime camera, every smile looks a lot brighter. And the widescreen format means everyone can fit into the picture without having to crowd around the display.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome little laptop

Pros: Lightweight, ~6 hrs battery life, fast. Great speakers, beautiful display (non-retina display, but I can't tell the difference). Camera is high resolution and works great in low-light. Mountain Lion is cool.

Cons: Had some bad stability issues with the video card (froze while playing videos, needed restarting frequently) but most recent system update seems to have fixed this. SD slot would be better if it was a little bit faster (480 Mbit/s capped) as it is a convenient way to expand storage. No CD Rom drive or Ethernet port.

Other Thoughts: This computer is awesome for portability, battery life, typing, etc. I watch Netflix on this all the time, use it for Microsoft Office, but haven't tested out any games yet. If you are looking for lots of storage, 3D gaming, playing blurays, this is probably not the PC for you. That said, it is perfect for me.

5 out of 5 eggsThin, Fast, Light

Pros: Ordered this for resale to a customer. Super fast boot, opens apps very fast. The SSD and core i5 get all the kudos for that. This laptop shipped with Mountain Lion OS X 10.8 (NOT 10.7 as in the specs). YMMV

Cons: None. It's a great little notebook.

Other Thoughts: It's a tablet on steroids.
