MacBook Air 13-tommer

DinSide.no
23 July 2012
  • Excerpt: DinSide Siden den første MacBook Air dukket opp i 2008 har det ytre vært rimelig uforandret. Det viktigste har hele tiden vært minimal tykkelse og eksklusivt design, og først i det siste året har dette også blitt hovedtrenden i PC-verdene for mange maskiner i tilsvarende prisklasse - såkalte Ultrabooks. At MacBook Air var stamfaren til Intels Ultrabook-konsept er ganske tydelig.
  • Pros: Elegant, slank og lett. Kraftig maskinvare, god batteritid.
  • Cons: Skjermen er ikke like god som resten av maskinen, både betraktningsvinkel og oppløsning kunne vært bedre.
