MacBook Air Review

By on Feb 13, 2012 in Laptops, Macs |

Although Apple made notebook computers prior to developing the MacBook, The MacBook was surely different than those that came before it.  It’s predecessors, the iBook and the PowerBook, were certainly advanced machines, but nothing compared to those that the company would produce in the near future.  The MacBook line was the beginning of a new future in notebook computers, both for Apple, for Steve Jobs, and for the people who would use the newly developed, more advanced notebook computers.  Although the general concept of the MacBook line has stayed fairly uniform, there are always improvements with the newest models to be introduced, the most recent being the 2011 MacBook Air, which comes in both an 11 inch and a 13 inch model.  This is one of the best of the MacBook Air notebooks to be introduced so far, with features that make it ideal for any type of user.  Most of all are the advanced capabilities of the newest MacBook product so far, although another model is surely likely to come out before too long. The 2011 MacBook Air’s Capabilities One of the best capabilities featured in the newest MacBook Air is the extended battery life.  Numerous notebook producing computer companies have been trying aiming for a longer battery life and this time Apple may have hit the proverbial nail on the head.  The 2011 MacBook Air is claimed to have a battery life of up to seven hours, and in addition to the longer length of time that the MacBook can be used without charging it can also run on standby for an extended length of time, nearly 30 days to be exact.  The newer models of the MacBook Air are also much more energy efficient than prior models, which is a welcome development for those that use their MacBook often.  More importantly, though, the more contemporary MacBook Air as a significant amount of memory and storage, which is what every notebook owner wants to hear.  This particular machine features an Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 128 GB of flash memory storage, and 2 GB of RAM. The 2011 MacBook Air’s ProgramsIn addition to better capabilities the newer Airs also have a number of desired programs pre-installed on them.  While some of these were featured in later models of the MacBook Air, some are making their appearance for the first time.  Such programs are included with the Mac OS Snow Leopard operating system.  Those programs include Time Machine, iTunes, Safari, Mail, iChat, and Face Time.  In addition, there are multiple applications installed that are designed to work with other Apple portable devices.  This make it much simpler for MacBook owners that own other Apple products to streamline their communications and data information, and simplify their lives. For some time MacBooks were generally considered to be designed with the business person in mind, but these days there is a MacBook out there for everyone.  The move to designing notebook computers with more people in mind has led to a great increase in the number of people who purchase from the MacBook line.

Macs vs PCs — What Do You Prefer?

By on Mar 3, 2011 in Macs | 3 comments

Guys once again we are faced with this never ending debate that what is better a PC or a MAC. Although, you may already know that PC stands for personal computer and both the MAC and Windows operated computer systems fall in this category. Yet the tech savvy people like us have named the Apple’s personal computer system MAC, and the Windows operated system has been nicknamed the PC. As soon as you start thinking of buying a computer for yourself, you are struck with the question that should you buy a PC or the MAC. Computer enthusiasts are split in two over this matter. MAC fans would make you buy the MAC, boasting about its greatness. At the same time, the PC lovers would tell you all the advantages of the PC and why it’s best for you. It is only fair to say that both these systems have their own merits and demerits and your choice should be based upon your own needs. Here are a few pointers that may help you with the choice Usage and Function From a business and official use point of view, the PC is the ideal choice. They have been developed as hardcore work machines, capable of word processing, spreadsheet working, presentations, e-mails etc. These features are also available with the MAC but it’s not born to do this stuff. So, if you are looking to manage your work with ease and comfort, PC would definitely prove better. MACs over the years have proved themselves to be great multimedia machines. The quality of graphics, images, videos and music provided by the MAC is unmatched. It gives a more trendy and hospitable look. If you are looking for a more enjoyable and simpler computing experience, MAC would prove worthwhile. Design and Looks The Apple MAC readily wins this argument. MAC has always been known for its sleek and ultra modern design. Buyers get a machine that doesn’t look like a machine but a showpiece. On the other hand, PCs have always been bulkier and ugly looking. Though, they have now come to their senses by improving the design, they still don’t come close to the MAC. Cost There is no doubt at all that Apple’s are heavily overpriced. You can get a better PC in half the price of the same quality MAC. So, if price is a concern that MAC will give you a sad face then you are better off with the PC. But, if you are willing to pay extra, Apple surely won’t disappoint...
