Apple MacBook Air 11.6

The Apple MacBook Air “Core 2 Duo” 1.6 11″ (2010/2011) technically is a “configure-to-order” configuration of the MacBook Air “Core 2 Duo” 1.4 11″ (2010/2011), but also is documented as a separate model for reader convenience. Other than processor, this model is identical to the MC506LL/A configuration of the MacBook Air “Core 2 Duo” 1.4 11″ and both were offered with 128 GB of flash storage as shipped.

The Apple MacBook Air “Core 2 Duo” 1.6 11″ (2010/2011) is powered by a 1.6 GHz Intel “Core 2 Duo” processor (SU9600) with two independent processor “cores” on a single chip with a 3 MB on-chip shared level 2 cache running on a 800 MHz frontside bus.

It features 4 GB of onboard 1066 MHz DDR3 SDRAM, 128 GB of flash storage, a NVIDIA GeForce 320M “graphics processor with 256 MB of DDR3 SDRAM shared with main memory”, an integrated “FaceTime” video camera, a non-backlit full-size keyboard (the function keys are smaller, however) and an 11.6″ widescreen TFT LED backlit active-matrix “glossy” display (1366×768 native resolution) in a razor thin (0.11-0.68 inch), 2.3 pound, aluminum case.

Connectivity includes AirPort Extreme (802.11a/b/g/n), Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, dual USB 2.0 ports, analog audio out, and video out capabilities (Mini DisplayPort) that support an external 30″ display. It lacks internal Ethernet (an external adapter was available as a US$29 upgrade) and lacks Firewire and optical audio in/out as well.
