MacBook Air (summer 2011) unboxing video

airy2 Just a few days ago Apple announced, fairly quietly, the new version of the MacBook Air. I’d been looking forward to this one as we’d been thinking about getting an Air but suspected Apple would refresh the model in line with the MacBook Pro and iMac that were updated to include Sandybridge and new Intel Core CPU’s along with Thunderbolt connector.

Apple didn’t disappoint as on the 20th July the MacBook Air and Mac Mini were updated along with the release of OS X Lion.

We’ve got out hands on the entry-level 11-inch model with 64GB SSD, 2GB RAM and 1.6GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 CPU. I’ve only had a chance to use the Air briefly, as it arrived from Apple yesterday, but so far I am really impressed with the performance. While it’s obviously not as quick as my top-of-the-range MacBook Pro the Air is still certainly no slouch and in terms of day-to-day web browsing, email and word processing there’s no problems at all.

Check out the unboxing video below and stay tuned for James’s verdict shortly.
