Apple MacBook Air 11" I5 1.4Ghz Review
Apple MacBook Air 11" i5 1.4GHz comprises of wedge-shaped design made up of aluminum in entirety. It is slender and sleek, though lacking a touch-screen. The Air of 11 inches measures 11.8 x 7.56 x 0.11-0.68 inches just as previously, weighing 2.38 pounds, which makes it ultraportable. It is lighter and smaller compared to Dell XPS 11 and Lenovo ThinkPad X240. The Air is naturally both heavier and larger in size compared to Surface Pro 2, which is 10 inches, weighing 2.4 pounds and measuring 10.81 x 6.81 x 0.53 inches while having the keyboard cover.
Apple MacBook Air 11" i5 1.4GHz still retains its superb keyboard. Key responsiveness and travel quite often get sacrificed at expense of having thin chassis. Typing on island-style keys of the black device is pleasurable, especially due to bright backlighting. Mac OS-specific keys located above number row prove quite useful as usual. Apple MacBook Air 11" i5 1.4GHz features 1366 x 768-pixel display screen measuring 11.6 inches, which is colorful and bright. The only downside is that it lacks a touch screen.
Speakers lying underneath keyboard of Air generate superb strings, bass and mids, which sound fairly balanced. The updated 2014 model of MacBook Air 11 from Apple has few ports only, just as with previous versions. It has Thunderbolt port and USB 3.0 port located on the right, with second USB 3.0 port plus headphone jack present to the left. No SD card slot is available on 13-inch Air, but this is present on Surface Pro 2, Lenovo X240 and the XPS 11.
The 2014 Air produces high quality High Definition webcam and when making FaceTime call, details and colors are clear and crisp as ever, with the face being illuminated well. The device boasts having Intel Core i5-4260U 1.4GHz processor, 128GB flash memory and 4GB RAM. This is quite some modest boost from the previous year’s model, which featured an i5-4250U and 1.3GHz Intel Core processor.
MacBook Air 11" i5 1.4GHz from Apple features Intel High Definition Graphics which enable playing of casual games plus certain lower-settings mainstream titles. Macs are bloat-ware-free as always and you need not spend time uninstalling apps not needed. Users of new-Mac as well get the productivity suite of Apple (Keynote, Pages and Numbers) in addition to iLife suite (iPhoto, iMovie and GarageBand) free of charge. It makes this system a better bargain. As well, Apple includes Maps which come complete with 3D flyovers, along with ability of sending directions to the iPhone, plus iBooks apps.
Apple MacBook Air 11" i5 1.4GHz boasts having longer battery life plus better performance compared to its competition and does this while costing less than them. The 2014 updated edition lacks high-resolution touch screen display. Even then students and consumers seeking for highly portable system with robust productivity suite and outstanding battery life should find MacBook Air ideal for their needs.
