MacBook Air The notebook is made of anodized aluminum, and its smooth curves lead us to believe in weightlessness brainchild of Apple. On the other hand, the psychological factor plays a minor role: today you will not find in the sale of more than thin laptop, given the weight class MacBook Air - just 1.36 kg. Despite the fact that the MacBook display has a diagonal of 13.3 inches, it still belongs to the class of ultra-making. This laptop is very convenient to travel: it sizes are almost the same as that of the modern glossy magazine. In addition, Apple products are always feature a stylish appearance. If the design and technical design MacBook Air brought to perfection, with other points of view, this laptop can be considered a victim of compromise. Just look at its side edges. There was no place for usual optical drive, card reader, even Ethernet ports and Firewire. C Only the right side of the laptop has a small socket single-port usb 2.0, headphone jack and connector Micro-DVI. The absence of a standard set of connectors is disappointing. The majority of complaints is reduced to a single port usb 2.0, for modern notebooks negligible. But on the other hand, anyone should - that will connect USB-hub. Even more frustrating the lack of Firewire, which does not allow you to connect digital camera to the MacBook Air. The notebook also supports wired networks. Apple explains this by saying that Wi-Fi should be sufficient. In our case, the wireless adapter supports the protocol of 802.11n, which is the peak bandwidth is 248 Mbps. The good news is that for about $ 29 (U.S.) you can buy an adapter USB-Ethernet.
