The company introduced a new range of ultra-thin MacBook laptop and hoped that will be able Apple Laptops
Apple, Inc. (until January 2007 Apple Computer, Inc.) is a company from Silicon Valley, based in Cupertino, California, with the primary goal of activity in computer technology. Known mostly for Macintosh computers, Apple has a reputation for innovation in high tech industry.
Having learned several painful lessons after introducing the bulky Macintosh Portable in 1989, Apple introduced the PowerBook 1991 which established the modern form and ergonomic laptop computers. In the same year Apple introduced System 7, a major operating system upgrade that adds color graphical user interface and introduces new capabilities for network functions.
Steve Jobs, Apple’s chief executive, managed to impress the audience again and in some measure the analysts and investors at the annual Macworld fair held in the American city San Francisco, says the international press.
The company introduced a new range of ultra-thin MacBook laptop and hoped that will be able to repeat the success of digital music through iTunes online store, and launching an online movie rental service. The new MacBook Air is the thinnest laptop in the world, according to Jobs, it has the maximum thickness of 1.93 centimeters (0.76 inches). On the thinnest laptop side, the device does not exceed 0.4 centimeters (0.16 inches). Just to emphasize suppleness of the laptop such as Apple A1175, Apple A1148 and Apple M6091, Jobs has brought the product on stage in a standard mail envelope.
With a wide screen of 13.3 inches (33.8 centimeters), Intel Core 2 Duo up to 1.8 GHz, 2 gigabytes of RAM, multi-touch trackpad technology (first commercially introduced in the iPhone sites) and hard disk capacity of 80 gigabytes, the starting price of the new MacBook Air is $ 1800 (1224 euro) in the United States. Optionally, customers may choose to store the flash memory SSD (Solid State Drive) of 64 gigabytes, that makes the product price to go up to about 3100 dollars (2108 euro). Unlike traditional hard drives, SSD devices contain no moving parts, which significantly reduces access time and eliminates risk of data loss following mechanical shocks.
But miniaturization presents some disadvantages, because the device has no optical drive for reading and writing CDs or DVDs. Jobs says that the users will not miss it, because they can download music and movies from the Internet and can access wireless optical units of other computers (or PCs with Windows or Macintosh systems). Also optionally, users can purchase an external optical drive for 100 dollars (68 euro). Other aspects criticized by analysts are the lack of a traditional network cards (laptop can access the Internet only through a Wi-Fi), implementing a single USB 2.0 port and the device weight, which is about 1.36 kilograms. MacBook Air is designed as a laptop between the MacBook range and MacBook Pro top, but analysts believe that the product could attract the customers who would normally have been interested in the Pro model.
The great speech, which took place on 6 January 2009 at Macworld Apple has brought to public attention the new MacBook Pro, one of the apple laptop computers. In the absence of Steve Jobs, the man who is rumored that it will replace in the future (Phil Schiller) said that the new MacBook Pro is “the thinnest 17 inch laptop, with a thickness of 2.5 cm. Even the 3 kg weight does not mean much if we think that notebooks with screen sizes greater than or equal to 17 are considered solutions desktop replacement. MacBook Pro is certainly a notebook in which you can hardly find any fault. The construction of the chassis of one piece (unibody enclosure) is exceptional and the performances are also in height. On display with a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels you will see how well it moves applications supported by a Core 2 Duo clocked at 2.66 GHz, 4 GB DDR3 RAM and the NVidia graphics (9400M + 9600M GT). Storage is on a 320 GB hard drive.
Although the MacBook Pro falls into the category desktop replacement, the relatively compact dimensions (39.3 x 26.7 x 2.5 cm) and light weight make it very easy to carry. In this case, the impressive autonomy role is doing its job, with its impressive eight hours, the best of those currently encountered at an Apple notebook.
