Apple Macbook Air Core I7 1.8GHz 4GB RAM 250GB HD MC966LL/A
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

5 out of 5 eggs Great for a non-existent product 08/19/2014

This review is from: Apple Macbook Air Core I7 1.8GHz 4GB RAM 250GB HD MC966LL/A

Pros: Pretty affordable macbook air, especially considering it has:
- a "Core I7" processor; even Apple doesn't sell macbook airs with 1.8ghz processors
- a 250GB HD stuffed inside a 128GB SSD
- OS X v10.7
- cheaper than lowest end Macbook Air

Cons: This product has never existed in the history of time.

I love the bait-and-switch "Not available. See similar items below" while you can still add it to your card and have it shipped to you. How in the hell does this make sense?

Other Thoughts: Would it be too much to ask of Newegg to have them screen their sellers for bait-and-switch practices?

Pros: Great board, love the high memory capacity. Not a huge fan of the mouse-oriented interface, but I love the options available for overclocking and tweaking. My OC knowledge isn't all that great, but I brought my A8-3870k from 3.0 to 3.5 GHz effortlessly and bumped the gpu clock by another 300 MHz. Did I say I love the memory capacity? Can't go wrong with 32 gigs and over 2000MHz support. Very versatile with power support as well, can do 8 or 12 pin, and 20 or 24 pin power. USB3 and Sata 6gbs are all great features. It's really future-proof

Cons: Don't make the same mistake I did and think that it has USB 3 headers, it does not. It was 3 usb 2.0 headers and some USB 3.0 ports, but if you have a case with a front panel with USB 3.0, you're going to have to convert or pull a cable through the back ports. Mouse interface is slow and clunky, but this is really not a big deal.

Other Thoughts: For the money, this is probably the best option for a Fusion chip. It seems very future proof, supporting all the latest technologies, 2xPCIE, lots of memory, and HDMI1.4a
