Video: Just how fast is the new MacBook Air?
When Apple announced the new MacBook Air, they touted the speed of the internal SSD drive, which is connected directly to the motherboard. We figured we'd check and see how true this was--after all, we use an SSD inside of a Mac Pro that's much better specced than the MacBook Air. The results were definitely surprising though, as you see in the video. Shutdown to booting up to a usable desktop took less than 14 seconds, which is something I've never gotten on my Mac Pro. That's the benefit of soldering SSD directly to the motherboard. This thing is speedy.
You can get the MacBook Air at a discount from Amazon, as they sell it for about $38 less than Apple, and ship it for free.
