ap­ple Macbook air 11

PCQuest - - COVERSTORY -

The list be­gins with Macbook Air 11, be­cause it is the light­est and also the small­est ul­tra-book in the mar­ket. It stands in great stead with a bat­tery back-up of upto 5 hours. It fea­tures a uSB 3.0 port, a thun­der­bolt port and SD card slots along with In­tel’s HD4000 graph­ics. Its added at­trac­tion is that it comes with Core i5 pro­ces­sor, though the flip side is that it only has a 64 gB SSD. The RAM has been in­creased to 4gB and that along with the i5 pro­ces­sor makes it a sturdy per­former. It runs the lat­est Mac oS X lion 10.

What makes it ideal for trav­el­ers is the ro­bust form swamped in an alu­minium chas­sis with the thinnest di­men­sions around, mea­sur­ing 11.8x7.6x7 inches and weigh­ing a mere 1.08 Kg. When closed, it al­most re­sem­bles an 11 inch tablet. If you are think­ing that the key­board or track­pad or the dis­play will be fraught for space, don’t worry be­cause the keys are big and easy to ma­noeu­vre and the 11.6 inch screen has a res­o­lu­tion of a 13 inch ul­tra-book (1366x768p). The track­pad is multi-touch and the keys are back­lit and both score in terms of re­spon­sive­ness and com­fort.

Bottomline: With 1 year war­ranty and a price tag of Rs 67k, this is the light­est and small­est ul­tra-book in the mar­ket. The Acer As­pire S3 and Macbook Air 13 are the clos­est sec­ond best on those terms.
