Product Details

Apple MacBook Air 1.7GHz Intel Core i5 Notebook Computer, Model MC965LLA

Features:

  • Intel Core i5 and i7 processors
    Both the 11- and 13-inch MacBook Air now feature the latest generation of Intel processors, the Core i5 and i7. With speeds up to 1.8GHz and faster memory, the new MacBook Air gains up to 2.5x the processing performance over the previous generation.1 MacBook Air also features the Intel HD Graphics 3000 processor, which includes an on-chip engine for video encoding and decoding. That means you experience video playback and FaceTime calls that are smoother, more responsive, and more true to life
  • Thunderbolt I/O
    With one port, MacBook Air gives you access to a world of high-speed peripherals capable of transferring data up to 12 times faster than FireWire 800 and up to 20 times faster than USB 2.0. Or use the Thunderbolt port to connect the new Apple Thunderbolt Display and transform your ultracompact MacBook Air into a complete desktop workstation. Power over 4 million eye-popping pixels while enjoying some major benefits: Gigabit Ethernet, FireWire 800, an additional Thunderbolt port, three USB ports, a FaceTime HD camera, 2.1 stereo sound, and a built-in microphone. The display even charges your MacBook Air, so there’s no need to unpack and unravel your power adapter. With two quick connections — the MagSafe power cord and the Thunderbolt cable — you’re up and running in seconds. Unplug them, and you’re on your way just as fast
  • All-flash storage
    Devices like iPhone and iPad have already demonstrated the advantages of flash storage: reliability, speed, and efficiency. So the decision to use flash storage in an ultracompact notebook like MacBook Air made perfect sense. With flash, your computer starts up in almost no time and accesses data quickly. Flash also gives MacBook Air the astonishing ability to remain in standby mode for up to 30 days.3 Which means your MacBook Air snaps to in an instant, whether you open it tomorrow, next week, or next month
  • Backlit keyboard
    As incredibly compact as MacBook Air is, it still manages to fit a full-size keyboard that makes typing as natural as it is comfortable. And now the keyboard is backlit, so you can type with ease in even the dimmest light. A built-in ambient light sensor detects changes in lighting conditions and adjusts the display and keyboard brightness automatically. From a seat in a sunny café to a seat on a cross-country red-eye, you’ll always have the perfect lighting for any environment
  • Multi-Touch trackpad
    The Multi-Touch gestures in OS X Lion make everything you do on MacBook Air more intuitive, direct, and fun. And the spacious Multi-Touch trackpad is perfectly designed for them, whether it’s a three-finger swipe to activate Mission Control or a four-finger pinch to see all your apps in Launchpad. Gesture responses in Lion are smooth and realistic. So when you’re scrolling up and down a web page or swiping from one full-screen app to another, it’s almost like you’re touching what you’re seeing
    • Click
      Press down anywhere to click. Or, with Tap to Click enabled, tap the trackpad
    • Double-click
      Press down two times anywhere. Or, with Tap to Click enabled, double-tap the trackpad
    • Tap to zoom
      Double-tap the trackpad with two fingers to magnify a web page or PDF
    • Two-finger scroll
      Slide two fingers up or down the trackpad to scroll through documents, websites, and more
    • Swipe to navigate
      Flip through web pages, documents, and more like thumbing pages in a book
    • View Mission Control
      Swipe up on the trackpad to get a bird’s-eye view of everything running on your Mac
  • Display, camera, and speakers
    Make FaceTime calls from your MacBook Air to an iPhone 4, iPad 2, iPod touch, or another Mac running FaceTime for Mac
    • High-resolution display
      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. The 11-inch MacBook Air features a resolution equal to that of your typical 13-inch notebook, while the 13-inch MacBook Air wows with a resolution equivalent to a typical 15-inch notebook
    • FaceTime camera
      The wafer-thin MacBook Air display houses something pretty huge: the FaceTime camera. It’s so thin — even thinner than the camera on iPhone 4 — you barely notice it, but it’s incredibly capable. Using the FaceTime for Mac app, you can make video calls with anyone who has a Mac, iPad 2, iPhone 4, or the latest iPod touch.2
    • Stereo speakers
      Despite its compact form, MacBook Air delivers full stereo sound. Space-efficient design inside the enclosure allows for the placement of left and right speakers that project sound through the keyboard. So you’re able to enjoy a richer audio experience while chatting online, watching TV shows, listening to music, or playing games
    • Long-lasting battery
      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 5 hours of battery life on a single charge on the 11-inch model and up to 7 hours on the 13-inch model. Put MacBook Air to sleep, and it enters standby mode to conserve battery life for up to 30 days.3 When you come back to your MacBook Air and open it up, it’s on in an instant
    • Connectivity
      When you’re wireless, you’re truly mobile. That’s why MacBook Air features 802.11n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 technology. Wireless connectivity allows you to browse the web, send email, and print documents no matter where you are.4 MacBook Air weighs almost nothing, so you can go from room to room, dorm to dorm, or cubicle to cubicle and stay connected. Being wireless also means you can download apps from the Mac App Store anytime you want. With thousands of Mac apps available for download with just a few clicks, you don’t have to bother with going to the store to buy software on disc or worry about a growing pile of CDs and DVDs. Apps download instantly right on your Mac. If plugged in is what you want to be, MacBook Air has you covered there, too. Two USB 2.0 ports, an SD card slot (on the 13-inch model), and a headphone port give you plenty of options. And the Thunderbolt port connects to the new Apple Thunderbolt Display and high-speed Thunderbolt peripherals such as external hard drives

      Comments about Apple MacBook Air 1.7GHz Intel Core i5 Notebook Computer:

      This laptop has great performance and comes in a sleek and sexy package. The i5 sandy bridge processor paired with the solid state hard drive really lets the applications fly. Like the iPhone and other apple products, the operating system (Lion OSX) on this MacBook air is responsive and snappy.

      Navigating the web on this computer is excellent using the touchpad. Its surprising how much more smooth and responsive the touchpad is compared to any other Windows laptop I've used. I actually prefer the pad compared to a mouse with this machine, unless I'm doing precision work such as photoshop.

      The only downside is the battery does not last as long as Apple states it will when visiting flash-based websites.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Fast delivery and the package was packed well and in good condition. Customer service was absolutely helpful when contacting them for additional information on my order. A++ transaction, I will be coming to ABT for many future purchases.

      The only problem with the laptop is that i have to zoom into everything to read. The displayed fonts are too small compared to my PC. Other than that, the new OS is unreal! Beautiful and well thought out. I would buy one for each member of my family if I could afford it;). Great laptop with superior quality. Dont even think twice, buy this! DOnt get the 11 inch, it's way too small, ge the 13inch.

        Comments about Apple MacBook Air 1.7GHz Intel Core i5 Notebook Computer:

        I have never written a review for anything before. I cannot say how great this laptop is. It is tiny. I can't believe how thin it is. For many laptops you sacrifice portability and cosmetics for speed and power. Not with this. Even though it only has a 1.7 Core i5 processor, it works perfectly and has no lag whatsoever. It has a high definition screen, which allows you to look at it for hours on end without it hurting your eyes. If you are a fan of macs, or even a PC lover, i recommend that you buy this laptop. It will be one of the best investments you will ever make, it was for me.

        PS: Mac OS X Lion works perfectly with this. The full screen mode allows Lion to take advantage of the 13.3" Screen to make it the biggest laptop you need. No need for a 15"

        PS Again: The only con is that near the back, it gets pretty hot, but you rarely notice it unless you feel it. It has no effect on performance.
