MacBook Air gets a bump

Another hands-on with the new MacBook, MacBook Pro and 24-inch Cinema Display


The MacBook Air, being a newer design than the aging MacBooks and Pros, got little more than a bump in specs today. But it was a good, solid bump! Here are the changes:

  • SSD drive increased in capacity to 128GB
  • Processor now up to 1.86GHz with a faster (1066MHz) FSB and 6MB L2 cache
  • GeForce 9400M 256MB video card (thank god for that)
  • Mini Displayport instead of Micro-DVI (probably a smart move)

Very nice. I think people buying the Air are probably pretty Apple-committed, so the new display connector will be just dandy for them. It’s still short on ports, but you knew that. You’ll be able to get them in November.
