People have been entranced and captivated by the MacBook Air since it became available. Students, geeks, businessmen, tech-nerds, businesswomen and all kinds of other people have dedicated many hours to standing in lines for the new computer just to get their hands on the "greatest new technology" from Apple. It has been well known through societies that the Air has become one of the most popular laptops of the year.

With its many advanced features and components comes a new and creative touchpad. This pad allows used to perform all kinds of tasks with a few movements of their fingertips.

Pinch Open and Close - Ever use the zoom in and out features of an iPhone or iPad? This is much the same. Simply place your index finger and thumb on the touchpad and pinched closed to zoom in or pinch open to zoom out.

Two-Finger Scroll - To move screens diagonally, vertically or horizontally, simply brush two fingers in the desired direction.

Rotate - Place your thumb and pointer finger on the pad and turn clockwise or counterclockwise to rotate an image.

Secondary Click - To do this, put your first finger on the pad or tap two fingers to do a right-click.

Secondary Click - Place a finger on a corner of the trackpad or touch two fingers on the pad to do a right-click.

As stated by their advertising, the MacBook Air is quite thin. Customers can purchase 11 or 13-inch laptops. While the computer is small, the functions it performs are the same or better than previous models. This is very good for people who are always on the go but need to take their information anywhere.

Like with the MacBook Pro, the Air has a NVIDIA GeForce 320M graphics processor. With this, people will be able to enjoy great speed and power that can be used to enjoys photos, watch movies and play games. Cruising the internet and sending e-mails are more simple tasks for this computer. Despite its light weight (averaging at three pounds), each Air possesses Intel Core 2 Duo processors. These components give people the freedom to be as productive as possible almost anywhere.

In order to be as wireless as possible and have internet on the go, Apple installed 802.11n WiFi and Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR features. You can now effectively cruise the web, send e-mails and view important documents without worrying about connectivity failing. Don't forget, the Air also possesses a battery that can power your computer for five to seven hours. You can even close the computer and have it go into standby mode for 30 days without the battery dying. The next moment you open the computer, it is ready to go and is still healthily charged.

My only thing with the Macbook Air is that it just doesn't have many ports for USBs etc. So, it's not great as an all-purpose laptop.

Air really is a good name for it. It's amazing how thin and light this powerful little machine is.

When you think about the fact that it's not much thicker or heavier than a tablet, then you really appreciate everything you can do on this.

When I first got the Macbook and learned about the two-finger scroll, it really threw me off, but now, I don't think I could function without it. The same goes for the three finger drag.

If you're going to be traveling a lot with it, then you owe it to yourself to get a good hardshell for it. It just might save your laptop's life :)
