Miscellanea

  • Battery in MacBook Air 13″ (early 2015) is screwed not glued which is good for environment and makes the replacement an easier process.
  • PCIe-based SSDs are manufactured by Samsung and have 4 lanes. They show a splendid performance, twice as fast as the previous year models: average write speeds of 629.9MB/s and average read speeds of 1285.4MB/s.
  • The integrated Intel HD Graphics 6000 is 20-25% faster than HD 5000, while the amount of shared RAM remains the same – 1.5 GB.
  • Most think, MacBook Air closest competitor is Windows Surface 3 Pro, but we at iGotOffer believe, it’s iPad Pro with detachable keyboard and the jaw-dropping hardware.
