The 11.6" MacBook Air Notebook Computer from Apple is an extremely portable, stunningly designed laptop computer. Apple’s engineers have leveraged the lessons they learned in designing the miniaturized iPad and applied them to the design of this 2.4-pound computer.

Intel Core i5 Processor
MacBook Air features a 1.6GHz Core i5 Intel processor. Along with fast DDR3 memory, the MacBook Air gains up to two and a half times the processing performance over the previous generation. MacBook Air also features the Intel HD Graphics 3000 processor, which includes an on-chip engine for video encoding and decoding. That means you experience video playback and FaceTime calls that are smoother, more responsive, and more true to life.

Backlit Keyboard
As incredibly compact as MacBook Air is, it still manages to fit a full-size keyboard that makes typing as natural as it is comfortable. And now the keyboard is backlit, so you can type with ease in even the dimmest light. A built-in ambient light sensor detects changes in lighting conditions and adjusts the display and keyboard brightness automatically. From a seat in a sunny caf, to a seat on a cross-country red-eye, you’ll always have the perfect lighting for any environment.

High-Resolution Display. Millions of Pixels. Millimeters Thin
Corner to corner and pixel by pixel, the MacBook Air display is both an engineering feat and a design breakthrough. The display measures a mere 0.19" (4.86mm) thin, yet the resolution is so high, you’ll feel like you’re looking at a much larger screen. And with good reason. The 11.6" MacBook Air features a resolution equal to that of your typical 13" notebook.

FaceTime Camera. Your Smile Goes for Miles
The wafer-thin MacBook Air display houses something pretty huge: the FaceTime camera. It’s so thin — even thinner than the camera on iPhone 4 — you barely notice it, but it’s incredibly capable. Using the FaceTime for Mac app, you can make video calls with anyone who has a Mac, iPad 2, iPhone 4, or a camera-equipped iPod touch.

does anyone know what is defined as "Grade A Refurbished" in Tanga? -Thanks

Memory: 2GB DDR3 RAM
64GB Solid State (SSD)

FYI. Mid-2011 model

@fatmig "Condition: Grade A Refurbished – Previously Used with Minor Wear
Through the refurbishment process, all units are tested for functionality and are guaranteed to perform as new. Units may show very minor signs of wear with the overall condition being considered good. Everything is guaranteed to be fully functional"

Seriously need to put refurb in the title... I knew it was, but that's not fair "advertising" for unsuspecting Joe looking for a deal.

2gb is way too slow. 4gb minimum. i would assume. 

Dont quote me but i think macbook air memories are proprietary. so cant just buy some at Newegg and upgrade it. 

It's soldered to the board, it can't be upgraded without solder reflow skills.

Don't buy it just because of Apple name. 2GB Memory and 64GB SSD are not up-gradable. Unless you are going to use it solely to check your emails, this laptop will not be able to handle simple task as a photo editing that many new $300 laptops are capable of . Look for one that has minimum 4GB memory and 128GB SSD. Otherwise, your laptop will make a nice paper weight. Keep your $320 in your saving account and accumulate more savings to purchase a better laptop during BF sale.

I agree with docjoo.

My old laptop that I have here sitting next to me is a mid 2011 model. I just use it for email off to my side. It would get extremely hot when I would try to do much on it and so I upgrade last year.

Damn... i was just about to buy this for the kiddo and you guys talked me out of it...

any suggestions on a used macbook that would be good for video editing? like to stay in the $500 range

interested to hear from those that did video editing and reasons why you recommended that model
