Free MacBook Air Canada

The super-slim MacBook Air was first introduced at the Macworld Conference on 15 January 2008. The Air has seen three revisions since launch, with the latest version being released during October 2010.

The main and most striking feature of the free MacBook Air is its slender Aluminium unibody casing which measures just 1.7cm at its thickest point and just 0.3cm at its thinnest.

MacBook Air versions

The MacBook Air is available in two basic versions, one with an 11.6-inch screen and one with a 13.3-inch screen. The 11.6" Free MacBook Air features either a 1.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor with 3MB on-chip shared L2 cache or a 1.6GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor (also with 3MB shared L2 cache) and a 800MHz frontside bus. The 13.3" model features a 1.86GHz or 2.13GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processors with 6MB on-chip shared L2 cache and a 1066MHz frontside bus. All models come wit ha solid state drive as standard, with either 64GB, 128GB or 256GB capacities. 2GB of RAM is offered as standard, upgradeable to 4GB whilst graphics are provided by an NVIDIA GeForce 320M graphics processor with 256MB of DDR3 SDRAM shared with the main memory.

All Free MacBook Air's offered in Canada come with integrated wireless networking, Bluetooth and an integrated webcam (situated above the screen). An external monitor can be connected via the units Mini DisplayPort. All MacBook Air's currently come with Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.

Other neat features of the MacBook Air are the large trackpad that allows you to use iPhone-style actions such as inertial scrolling, pinch and expand, swipe, tap, double tap, rotate and zoom. Another great feature is the MagSafe power connector that allows the wire to easily disconnect from the computer if snagged.

MacBook Air battery life

Despite its diminutive size, the Free MacBook Air has a superb battery life. The smaller screened model boasts five hours useage (with wireless conectivity enabled) whilst the 13.3-inch model manages an impressive seven hours of use. Both models can acheive up to 30 days of standby power on a single charge. These are very impressive stastistics for something so small. As with other MacBook models the battery is non-serviceable and not user removable.

MacBook Air specification

Some standard notebook features are omitted from the MacBook Air specification in order to achieve its impressive dimensions. Most notable is that the omission of a built-in optical drive - the user has to either to purchase an external drove or use Apple's Remote Disc software that allows the notebook to wirelessly access another computers drive. The FireWire port, Ethernet port, line-in socket and Kensington Security Slot are all absent from the new MacBook Air, although the 2010 model gains an SD card slot. The 2010 Air also now has two USB 2.0 ports as opposed to one on earlier models and also gains stereo speakers.

MacBook Pro or MacBook Air

If you would prefer a free MacBook Pro instead of the Air then simple follow the link. Whilst earlier Air models gave away quite a lot to the Pro in terms of processor power, battery life and conectivty, the current models only really suffer due to the lack of an optical drive - not really a major issue with the shift to online and flash based storage.
