    QuickerTek promises extended MacBook Air battery life for $350!!!

    The direction that Apple has taken with the iPhone, MacBook Air, and MacBook Pro has irritated some folks and rightfully so. Why would anyone be opposed to a removable battery? Read More

    Adamo could out-Air the Air

    Dell is hinting at a tiny laptop line called Adamo which might be some sort of boutique line or actually be the name of a new, ultrathin laptop that will give the MacBook Air a run for its money. Ashlee Vance at NYT writes: But most telling of all might have been the reaction of Michael Tatelman, Dell’s vice president in charge of consumer sales and marketing, to my question about whether or… Read More

    Got a new Apple? Time to get your firmware update on

    Unibody Macbooks and MacBook Pros, along with newer MacBook Airs, have gotten a firmware update from Apple, ostensibly addressing “stability issues.” I think they’re talking about that RAM thing because a firmware update isn’t going to change your 9600M’s faulty high-lead solder into eutectic. Oh yes I went there! Read More

  • Uh oh, MacBook Air shipments being delayed 2-3 weeks

    Uh oh, MacBook Air shipments being delayed 2-3 weeks

    If you recently (like in the last week) ordered the entry-level Nvidia-equipped MacBook Air then you probably got an e-mail stating that your pretentious little toy is being delayed. It appears they won’t begin shipping for 2-3 weeks if you choose to go with a 120GB SATA drive. But if you go with the 128GB SSD drive the shipping estimate speeds up to 3-5 days. Read More

  • Is the MacBook Air overpriced or just plain expensive?

    Is the MacBook Air overpriced or just plain expensive?

    Is the MacBook Air overpriced at $2,499 fully loaded? Seventy percent of us here at CrunchGear think so—Apple worshiper Biggs calls it a “great machine,” however—but what do we know? Nothing, apparently, if we’re to believe CNet, which comes to the conclusion that the MacBook Air, compared to other ultraportables, isn’t overpriced at all. The argument goes… Read More

  • CrunchDeals: Refurbished MacBook Air for $1,349

    CrunchDeals: Refurbished MacBook Air for $1,349

    Once thought to be wildly overpriced (by me, anyway), the MacBook Air almost seems like an okay deal at $1,349. It’s refurbished, yes, so you’ll have to decide if that’s a big deal to you or not. It still has a one year warranty and you can extend it if you like. The $1,349 version is the one with the 1.6GHz Core 2 Duo CPU, 2GB of RAM, and the 80GB hard drive. The 1.8GHz version… Read More

  • Iomega ‘eGo Helium’ drive for MacBook Air owners

    Iomega ‘eGo Helium’ drive for MacBook Air owners

    To be fair, you don’t have to own a MacBook Air in order to purchase Iomega’s eGo Helium portable hard drive. It is, however, “a perfect match for the new MacBook Air notebook” according to Iomega. It’s even pre-formatted to the HFS+ file system. The drive itself has 320GB of storage space, weighs less than half a pound, and requires no external power supply. Read More

    MacBook Air getting new proc, HDD, battery

    Come September, we’re expecting a whole bushel of Apple improvements. I’m looking forward to a completely new MacBook Pro for use with Snow Leopard, but those of you more concerned with form than function will be happy to hear that the MacBook Air will be getting spec’ed up too. It’s been reported that the new line of Airs will sport 120GB/160GB optional HDDs, a… Read More

  • ZeroShock III MacBook Air sleeve

    ZeroShock III MacBook Air sleeve

    After you spent all that money on a new MacBook Air, you are probably paranoid about it getting damaged. In fact, you’re so paranoid that a normal laptop case will not suffice — you will also want it wrapped in a sleeve. Since you are not alone in your paranoia, many companies offer products like the ZeroShock III MacBook Air Sleeve ($27.95 USD). This particular sleeve is composed of… Read More
