Walt Mossberg has reviewed new MacBook Airs



Famous technology journalist Walt Mossberg published another review where he analyzes new MacBook Air notebooks and describes them as "gorgeous, very thin and light, but very sturdy aluminum computers".

After using notebooks for some time he made a conclusion that the 11.6-inch system is very iPad-like, the battery life of the devices is "strong" and the systems wake up from sleep every time almost instantly. Though such machines won't fit as primary computers, especially for power users, they should fit fine for light-duty users. Walt revealed that even the $999 model can run 7-8 programs at the same time, even if there are iTunes, Safari Web browser with couple of dozens of apps opened and Microsoft Office among them.

Apple's new MacBook Airs were benchmarked



benchmark

The table above reveals new benchmarks for Apple Macbooks and iPad compiled by Geekbench developer Primate Labs so that customers could compare which device is the best to buy.

As you see, though the newest 13.3-inch MacBook Air has a 1.86 GHz Core 2 Duo processor, it is 80% as good as the latest 13.3-inch MacBook Pros with its 2.66 GHz and 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo CPUs. But the 11.6-inch MacBook Air (which has a 1.4 GHz Core 2 Duo chip) is only capable of 60% of the performance of the same MacBook Pro with 2.4GHz chip. This raises doubts whether the 11.6-inch MacBook Air will be a good decision for a primary machine.

New 11.6- and 13.3 inch MacBook Airs Are Finally Unveiled



macbookair1

Few hours ago Steve Jobs presented two new MacBook Airs, which became the result of hooking up the iPad and a MacBook (according to his words). They have neither hard nor optical drive, as they keep all the data on the solid state drive. Here is how Steve Jobs explained such an innovation:

"MacBook Air is the first of a new generation of notebooks that leaves behind mechanical rotating storage in favor of solid state flash storage. We’ve taken what we have learned with the iPad—solid state storage, instant-on, amazing battery standby time, miniaturization and lightweight construction, to create the new MacBook Air. With its amazing responsiveness and mobility, it will change the way we think about notebooks."
