    Product Description

    The design is not the only thing that makes the MacBook Pro a MacBook Pro. Fastest mobile processors and up to a 60 percent boost in graphics performance endow you with incredible power to do more than ever. Faster than ever. The MacBook Pro is also loaded with powerful new features, such as blazing fast Thunderbolt I/O technology, FaceTime HD camera, Multi-Touch trackpad, 802.11n wireless technology, long lasting battery and more, making a great notebook even greater. The 13-inch MacBook Pro model features 2.5GHz Intel Core i5, the fastest mobile dual-core processor available. With Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.6GHz, these processors bring more power to everything you do. And you can configure it to be even faster. The new integrated Intel HD Graphics 4000 processor boosts performance by up to 60 percent. That extra power gives you a smoother, more fluid experience than before. It's still highly efficient, too, so you get long battery life when you're out and about. The Multi-Touch trackpad is the most natural way to interact with what's on your screen, and the smooth glass surface gives you plenty of room for gestures. Pinch to zoom in and out, swipe to flip through photos, rotate to adjust an image, and much more. The buttonless design lets you click anywhere. And if you're coming from a right-click world, you can right-click with two fingers or configure a right-click area on the trackpad. The more you use the Multi-Touch trackpad, the more you'll wonder how you ever did without it.

    "My first used Apple product...After a couple of days, it did start heating up especially when I played online games so I returned it and got a new Apple iPad instead which was even lower priced than the laptop. ...I really don’t use a computer much or care what it looks like but I wanted a MacBook because of the ease of use as everything else I have is apple. Didn’t want to pay $900 for a new one to use it once every other week. "

    Product Description

    The 11.6" MacBook Air Notebook Computer (Early 2015) from Apple is an ultraportable notebook computer with a thin and lightweight design. Apple's engineers have leveraged the lessons they learned in designing the miniaturized iPad and applied them to the design of this 2.38-pound computer. To say that the Air is svelte is all at once stating the obvious and understating the truth. The system is defined by its unibody aluminum enclosure. At its thickest point the computer is only 0.68" -- it tapers down to 0.11" at its thinnest. The system is loaded with 128GB of flash storage rather than an old-fashioned hard drive. Flash storage doesn't just give you a lighter, thinner computer. It also allows for impressive battery life -- up to 9 hours of web browsing and 30 days of standby time. The MacBook Air is housed in an aluminum unibody enclosure, which is as strong as it is light. Because it is cut from a solid block of aluminum, the housing is stronger than those found on laptops built via traditional means. At 11.6" in size, the 16:9 display features a native resolution of 1366 x 768. It features a glossy finish and LED backlight technology for enhanced image quality and energy efficiency.
