I just bought one too, at $99 I figure better safe than sorry. I would hurry and get one before they could possible be forced to stop selling them or the price goes up.
Order one before they are gone!!!!
The 2010 MacBook Air from Apple is now available in two different sizes, with 11-inch and 13-inch displays, and four standard configurations. With the latest MacBook Airs, Apple has lowered prices while providing new features and capabilities that road warriors, who are the target audience for the MacBook Air, will enjoy.
New to the MacBook Air is flash memory (SSD) in place of a standard hard drive. Storage ranges from 64 GB to 256 GB, and provides some interesting improvements, including almost instant-on and vastly superior data access speeds. It’s also incredibly rugged compared to hard-drive-based storage.
The 2010 MacBook Air offerings from Apple comprise four standard models, two with an 11-inch display and two with a 13-inch display. All MacBook Air models have a small, easily toted form factor that is also incredibly rugged, thanks to the aluminum unibody construction and the lack of delicate moving parts, such as an optical drive or a standard hard drive.
In their place, Apple has equipped the MacBook Air with a solid-state drive (SSD). But unlike the usual SSD options, Apple chose to go with a bare component implementation of an SSD, using flash memory and a controller on a single card that somewhat resembles a memory module. This means you probably won't be able to easily upgrade the SSD in the new MacBook Air, at least not without voiding the warranty.
The tradeoff is a very fast storage system that is so easy on power consumption that the flash memory can stay in standby mode for up to 30 days, letting you instantly access your MacBook Air just by opening the lid.
Both the 11-inch and 13-inch MacBook Air will provide up to 30 days of standby time. This is the time where memory and SSD storage are kept in a low-power standby mode, so you can wake the MacBook Air instantly from sleep and get back to work. In continuous use, the 11-inch models will provide up to 5 hours of battery time; the 13-inch models up to 7 hours.
All models of the MacBook Air use an NVIDIA GeForce 320M graphics processor. This is the same graphics chip used in the current MacBook and Mac mini.
Apple chose to use an Intel Core 2 Duo processor running at 1.4/1.6/1.86/2.13 GHz (depending on model and configuration), making the MacBook Air probably the last Mac model that will use the older Core 2 Duo processors. If Apple had chosen a new Core i3, it would have been forced to use the Intel on-board graphics options, which aren't the best in graphics performance. By staying with the Core 2 Duo, Apple was able to use the much speedier NVIDIA graphics.
Apple is using high-resolution displays in both the 11-inch and 13-inch models. Coming in at 1440x900 pixels, the 13-inch MacBook Air has the same resolution as the bigger 15-inch MacBook Pro. The 11-inch display has a 1366x768 resolution, which is larger than many competing 13-inch notebooks.
Both displays are 16x9 widescreen formats, with the always-present Apple glossy glass panel.
Custom configurations allow for faster processor choices and up to 4 GB of RAM.
If you are planning on following the outlined procedure listed
below please proceed with EXTREME
CAUTION. This documented procedure was performed in a
controlled environment with all the necessary safety procedures.
Please note: That no animals were hurt in this process (none that I specifically hurt, but I suspect the company that harvested the bacon might have).
You will need the following ingredients and necessary cookware:
At this point you are probably wondering if Chocolate Covered Bacon (CCB) tastes good or is utterly disgusting. Perhaps you are asking yourself “Why would anyone even consider this combination?” I suspect the person who suggested that orange juice might not just be for breakfast anymore was subjected to the same level of scrutiny. But it was exactly this type of forward thinking that tore down the walls and stereotypes about orange juice, and made it perfectly acceptable to consume anytime of the day.
Let’s see what people are saying about it.
