Sleek, powerful, snappy—all describe the latest MacBook Air.
The Macbook Air has always been the darling of the powerful ultrabook category of laptops. While the debate about which ultrabook is best continues to rage on, the power and style of the newest MacBook Air are inarguable.
But there’s one thing missing from the MacBook Air that every other ultrabook features: a Windows operating system. Parallels Desktop 10 for Mac unlocks the power of Windows on MacBook Air by giving owners the best of both worlds.
Let’s look at some stats on the 2014 revision of MacBook Air (these refer to the 13-inch version, Apple’s beefiest):
- 1.4 GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 (Turbo Boost up to 2.7 GHz)
- Configurable to 1.7 GHz dual-core Intel Core i7 with Turbo Boost up to 3.3 GHz
- 4 GB of 1600 MHz LPDDR3 onboard
- Configurable up to 8 GB
- 256 GB PCIe-based flash storage
- Configurable to 512 GB flash storage
Built-in 54-watt-hour lithium-polymer battery means:
- Up to 12 hours wireless web
- Up to 12 hours of movies via iTunes
- Up to 30 days of standby time
Size and Weight
- Height: 0.11-0.68 inch (0.3-1.7 cm)
- Width: 12.8 inches (32.5 cm)
- Depth: 8.94 inches (22.7 cm)
- Weight: 2.96 pounds (1.35 kg)
And there’s so much more. Consumers rarely see this combination of horsepower in such a sleek profile.
