Apple MacBook Air 1.6GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Silver Notebook Computer - MB543LLA

A noticeable graphics boost.
With a new integrated graphics processor, MacBook Air changes the game and just about everything you do with it. The NVIDIA GeForce 9400M provides up to an amazing 4x performance boost over the original MacBook Air.1 Photos appear in iPhoto quickly. Transitions in Keynote are seamless. Games play more smoothly. And movie and video playback is better than ever before. No other ultraportable offers such amazing performance in such a slim design.

The brilliance of Multi-Touch.
MacBook Air includes a spacious trackpad with Multi-Touch technology. You can pinch, swipe, or rotate to zoom in on text, advance through a photo album, or adjust an image. Or try out the new four-finger swipe. With this gesture, you can navigate up and down to use Expose modes or left and right to switch between applications.

A smart LED display.
The LED-backlit display provides instant full screen brightness the moment you open MacBook Air. LED technology also makes the display more power efficient, which translates to long battery life. And since this display is mercury-free with arsenic-free glass, it’s as easy on the environment as it is on the eyes.

Thin is in the details.
The innovative now-you-see-it, now-you-don’t port hatch flips down to reveal (and closes to hide) all the ports you really need: a headphone jack, a USB 2.0 port, and a new Mini DisplayPort that supports DVI, dual-link DVI, and VGA video output. The Mini DisplayPort connects to the new Apple LED Cinema Display, and it supports other displays up to 30 inches.

More room for everything.
The MacBook Air hard drive is now larger at 120GB. So there’s plenty of storage for work, play, and whatever happens in between. Or choose a 128GB solid-state drive, which has no moving parts, for enhanced durability.2

The battery is slim. The performance isn’t.
Like everything on MacBook Air, the battery doesn’t compromise power for portability. You can access the web wirelessly for 4.5 hours.3

Faster is better.
MacBook Air performance is as impressive as its form, thanks to its 1.6GHz or 1.86GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor. This chip was custom built to fit within the compact dimensions of MacBook Air. And now it’s faster than ever. The new 1066MHz frontside bus, additional L2 cache (6MB total), and 2GB of faster DDR3 RAM provide plenty of speed and memory for working with your favorite applications.

Built-in iSight camera.
MacBook Air also includes a built-in iSight camera so smartly integrated, you hardly notice it’s there.The iSight camera and iChat software make video chatting easy anywhere there’s a wireless network.4
