Apple MacBook Air Core 2 Duo 2.13 13″ (Late 2010)

One of the Best Ultrabooks Ever Made

The MacBook Air packs significant power, memory, and storage into an ultra-thin, ultraportable case. 0.68 inches at its thickest, the MacBook Air is an attractive option for those seeking a lightweight performance system.

While not as powerful as its MacBook Pro cousin, the MacBook Air doesn’t have to be. Boasting Intel processors with turbo boost capability, PCI-e based flash storage (64 GB, 128 GB, 256 GB, and 512 GB configurations), and several configurable RAM options, the MacBook Air is without argument one of the best ultrabooks on the market. 

A highly capable design, the MacBook Air can tackle most consumer computing needs with ease. With impressive sound quality from an ultrabook and high-speed USB and Thunderbolt Ports, it delivers plenty of quality entertainment options.

Though perhaps not the best option for those interested in hardcore gaming, the MacBook Air is a wonderfully mobile platform for those needing a system that gets the job done. 

Whether one’s constant companion or a seldom-touched home system, the MacBook Air has earned its place as one of the best ultrabooks ever made.
