Everything about the Apple MacBook Air has been streamlined. And then streamlined again. Except for the things that shouldn't be, starting with the full-size, backlit keyboard and 13.3-inch widescreen display. On the inside it boasts an Intel Core 2 Duo processor, Mac Leopard v10.5 OS, 2GB of memory, and amazing wireless capabilities.

The 13.3 widescreen LED backlit display delivers 1280-by-800 resolution, which produces vibrant images and rich colours as well as conserving battery life. The genius of multi-touch allows you to zoom, rotate, and scroll with a pinch or swipe of the trackpad. This gesture-based input, so successful on iPhone and iPod touch, has been adapted by Apple for the MacBook Air.

Between 0.4 cm and 1.94 cm thin and weighing only 1.36 kg, MacBook Air sets new standards for ultra-portable computing without the usual compromises. The MacBook Air takes advantage of an increasingly wireless world with blazing-fast 802.11n2 and Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR wireless technologies built in.

NB this is the old version (intel graphics - ie the one john lewis are selling at 899 w/ 2 year warranty).

so good price, but not the latest and greatest and not what apple are currently selling online.

you've linked to apple not pc world (go to deals button)..

and they're different.. for starters the one on pcworld has a smaller hard drive and smaller graphics card

excellent price for entry level Mac Air. yeah it's got a smaller hard drive but it is still good. heat added!!
