    OMG/JK: Just Two Guys Drooling Over The New MacBook Air

    We had a special guest for this week’s episode of OMG/JK, the show I host alongside fellow writer Jason Kincaid: the new MacBook Air. If you’ve been waiting to see two guys endlessly fawn over something, watch above. And once we wiped the drool off of our faces, we also discussed Kleiner Perkins’ new sFund, the $250 million fund to back new social applications. And we talk a… Read More

  • Analyst Expects Apple To Sell 700k MacBook Air Notebooks In 4Q10

    Liking the new MacBook Air? Yeah, apparently you’re not alone. Chinese-language Commercial Times cites vice president of Concord Securities research department, Mingchi Kuo, in saying Apple will move 700k of the updated MacBook Air Notebooks in $Q10, accounting for 17% of Mac shipments. The 11-inch model is predicted to be the most popular model and will make up 60% of its marketshare. Read More

  • New MacBook Air Teardown Reveals Relatively Few Apple Design Secrets

    In classic iFixit fashion, the latest Apple laptop has been torn to pieces a mere day after its release event. How exciting! Now we get to find out how Apple managed to cram so much of 2007’s technology into that gorgeous case. Unsurprisingly, Apple has made the new MacBook Air nigh-impossible to service on your own. Not only is the interior secured by five-sided Torx T5 screws, but most… Read More

  • The New MacBook Air Will Be The Death Of Either The MacBook Or 13-inch MacBook Pro

    Apple’s consumer strategy has always been centered around clear, concise choices. The new, less expensive MacBook Air seems to change that. The line between consumer and pro, between entry level and top-tier is gone and it means that something is going to change in the Apple line-up sooner than later. Let’s look at the pricing. The new MacBook Air starts out at just $999. Read More

    Free As A Bird: Initial Thoughts After A Day With The New MacBook Air

    I’ve done it. I’ve worn the battery completely down on one of the new MacBook Airs. As such, I thought I’d post some initial thoughts about the machine. This isn’t a huge all-encompassing review — I haven’t even used it outside of my apartment yet — but rather my initial thoughts for those of you thinking about rushing out to buy one. All day… Read More

  • Yep, Apple Killed The CD Today

    Yep, Apple Killed The CD Today

    Stop. Take a deep breath. Before my headline gets you all worked up, consider what I’m saying here. The CD and other optical discs, like DVDs and Blu-rays, are obviously going to live on for a while as a way to transport media. But make no mistake that today, with two unveilings, Apple has effectively sealed the fate of the optical disc in the computer industry. Soon, it will go the way… Read More

  • Behold: The New MacBook Air [Pictures]

    Today, following Apple’s Back to the Mac event, we got some hands on time with the new products unveiled. Of those, the biggest announcement was the new MacBook Air. Pretty much, it’s almost exactly what I said I was looking for a few days ago. Check out the pictures of it in action below. Read More

  • Forceful Prediction: Apple Sunlight-Friendly Displays Would Scare The Daylights Out Of Competition

    With nary a peep on the possibility of Apple baking a seeable-in-sunlight transflective display into the rumored 11.6” MacBook Air that’s expected to come floating up from the Pulpit of Jobs at Apple’s “Back to the Mac” tomorrow, I’d like to make a pretty safe prediction (read: offer unasked-for advice): An Apple-anything with such a display would make… Read More

  • 11.6" MacBook Air Rumors Intensify Following Leaked Pic

    When we heard that the MacBook Air was in short supply, our thoughts immediately went to rumors of an 11.6″ version we heard some months back. New information seemed promising — and then over the weekend, leaked pics surfaced that seemed to show Air hardware similar in size to the existing model. Hopes! Dashed! But even newer information suggests that yes, in fact, the original… Read More

    MacBook Air Apparent: I Have Never Used My Computer's Optical Drive

    There’s this weird slit in the side of my MacBook Pro. It almost seems like a credit card swipe, or a receipt dispenser, or an air vent, or something. Oh wait. That’s an optical drive. You’ll forgive me if I wasn’t sure. You see, I’ve never used the thing. This dawned on me the other day. I’ve owned this computer for months now and I have never had the need… Read More

  • Source Claims 11.6" MacBook Air Incoming

    A little more than a week ago, it was reported that MacBook Air retail supplies were dwindling. This has historically indicated a new product or refresh, and now there is chatter suggesting that the new version will indeed be the 11.6″ version we heard about back in July. A source credited with “pinpoint accuracy” in the past by Apple Insider claims that the new… Read More

  • MacBook Air Supply Running Out; Refresh Imminent?

    Low supplies of aging Apple models have traditionally indicated a hardware refresh, and the latest herd to run thin is the great wild MacBook Air. Few retailers have any, and those asking for resupply are being told not to expect any until the week of October 12th at the earliest. October is one of the several months in which we find Apple activity, so it’s not such a far-out idea. Read More

  • The MacBook Air Project Is The Ultimate Apple All-In-One Computer


    With the look of an Apple-fied Asus Eee Keyboard and the internal workings donated from a partially-defunct MacBook Air, one ordinary man created something special: the MacBook Air Project. Read More

  • Is a new and improved MacBook Air coming later this year? Likely.

    Computer manufacturers generally update their notebook lines every few months — except for Apple. At best Apple updates their notebook lines twice a year and even longer for the MacBook Air, which received its last major update in mid-2009. Even that was just a processor and battery bump as the storage, graphics, screen, and memory were carried over from the late-2008 refresh. Read More

  • Apple refreshing the MacBook Air this week?

    The Macbook Air needs some help. It’s woefully underpowered compared to every other ultraportable and its advertised 5 hour battery life is nothing special these days as the new MacBook Pros can rock-out twice as long. But just maybe Apple has something in store for the razer-thin notebook as soon as this week. Read More

  • MacBook Air-style netbook available in Singapore next week

    Take the MacBook Air, shrink the screen down an inch, slap in some netbook components, and load it up with Windows 7 Release Candidate and — drumroll, please — you’ve got the iiView A2 out of Singapore. Oh, and lower the price to $468. That’s kind of important there. Read More

  • CrunchDeals: MacBook Air for $999 after rebate

    MacMall.com has a $200 rebate on Apple’s netbook, the MacBook Air, bringing the price down to $999 if you’re diligent enough to fill out and send in those rebate forms. Read More

  • 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… Read More
