MacBook AirApple's 11.6-inch MacBook Air adds a smaller version of the company's thinnest and lightest notebook with many of the same features as the larger 13.6-inch model, but is lighter and has a lower-resolution screen. The two models are similar in look, in that both have aluminum unibody designs and are 0.68 of an inch at their thickest point, tapering down to 0.11 of an inch. Neither MacBook has a hard disk drive, but uses only solid-state drives, which provide instant-on capabilities, faster performance and longer battery life. Both systems have full-size keyboard and come with an Intel Core 2 Duo processor and Nvidia GeForce 320m graphics. The 11.6-inch model is lighter, 2.3 pounds versus 2.9 pounds, while the larger model has a higher resolution LED backlit display: 1440 x 900 pixels versus 1366 x 768 pixels. The resolutions on the new MacBook Airs are greater than on the 15-inch and 13-inch MacBook Pros, respectively. In addition, the battery life on the larger Air is longer, seven hours versus five hours, but both have a standby time of 30 hours. The 11.6-inch MacBook Air starts at $999 with a 1.4 GHz Core 2 Duo processor, 2 GB of system memory and 64 GB of flash storage. The 13.6-inch model starts at $1,299 with a 1.86 GHz Core 2 Duo, 2 GB of memory and 128 GB of flash storage.
