- The 13.3-inch LED screen has a resolution of 1280×800 pixels. The same as the MacBook, as well as the 144MB RAM Intel GMAX3100 graphics chipset (shared with main memory).
- The 2 GB of RAM are welded on the board so forget about upgrades.
- The maximum thickness of the solid state disk or 1.8″ hard disk is 5 mm, the smallest format available to date. In addition, 1.8″ disks in this format are based on a single platter, so it is unlikely that we will see their capacity grow much further in the future. The good news is that it is estimated that the 64GB SSD can run perfectly for over 50 years and by then the new one you buy will probably be connected to your brain.
- The battery is fixed and, in principle, requires us to send the laptop to the technical service to replace it with a new one when necessary. The cost of this replacement is $129. It remains to be confirmed whether disassembling MacBook Air and performing this replacement is within everyone’s reach or whether it’s just crazy.
- At this time, it appears that it is not possible to use MacBook Air in Destination mode for file transfers.
- As you know, MacBook Air doesn’t come with an optical drive, but instead features a new application called Remote Disk. To make the invention work, you need to install it on the Mac or PC you want to use as a drive, then you can access the disks you insert via Wi-Fi. Unfortunately, it’s a one-way street and only allows reading, so if you want to burn a disc you’ll have to: a) Transfer the information to the other computer. b) Keep reading and drop a few more euros…
- This is the look of the famous 8x external SuperDrive that we will take home for 89 euros; a double layer DVD burner drive that is powered from the USB 2.0 itself. The downside of this drive is that it requires… the MacBook Air! Yes, Apple has decided to include some sort of software and hardware restrictions that prevent it from being used on other computers. Weird, weird…
- Another accessory, only recommended for those who want to remain tied to the network cables, is the USB-Ethernet adapter. The Apple one will be priced at ?29 and turns the single USB port on our MacBook Air into a 10100BaseT Ethernet connector.
