2012 MacBook Air 11" Unboxing

Hey guys, this is Austin and today I’m here with an unboxing of
the new 2012 MacBook Air 11”. I really love the Air as a portable
machine and the newest model brings some pretty nice improvements.
As always the box comes wrapped in plastic which we can make quick
work of with a knife. Pop the lid and inside you’ll see the MacBook
nestled away. We’ll take a look at the star of the video in a minute
but first let’s let’s see what else you get.
Inside the box is your paperwork which consists of a quick start
guide with a bit of information on the computer, safety information
which no one ever reads and most importantly of all Apple stickers.
You know...the whole reason you buy a MacBook?
Moving on we’ve got the power adapter. It’s very similar to the normal
MagSafe charger with fold out prongs and an extension cable. What’s new
is the MagSafe 2 connector which looks more like a iPhone charger and
is a bit thinner. Now that the boring part is out of the way, let’s
take a look at the Air itself. Once you get the plastic off you’ll see
the MacBook Air in all its aluminum goodness. Just like the last
generations it’s very thin with a tapered design that goes from .68 inches
at the top all the way down to .11 inches thick. On the left side you’ll
see your MagSafe 2 connector, a USB 3.0 port, a combo headphone and
microphone jack along with an actual microphone. On the right side you’ll
see the Thunderbolt port which doubles as a Mini DisplayPort and your
second USB 3.0. The keyboard is unchanged which means it’s still rocking
a full sized layout with backlighting. You’ll also see the oversized glass
multitouch trackpad which really is impressive on an 11” laptop. Above the
screen is the new FaceTime HD webcam. I’m sure it will be better than the
old camera but honestly...it’s a tiny webcam. Don’t expect much.
This Air comes with 8GB of RAM, a Core i5 and a 128GB SSD. There are lots
of options including going down to 4GB of RAM and a 64GB SSD or moving up
to a Core i7 and 512 gigs of storage. One thing to keep in mind is that you
really can’t upgrade much on the Air after you buy it, especially the RAM,
so make sure you get exactly what you want up front.
Anyway that’s about it for this unboxing. If you guys want to see more of
