MacBook Air 2,1 (13-Inch, Late 2008 and Mid 2009)

MacBook Air 2,1 (13-inch, Late 2008 and Mid 2009) is the thoroughly revised version of MacBook Air 1,1, released in January 2008. In fact, the design of the MacBook Air 2,1 – an ultra-thin machined aluminum case with a full-size backlit keyboard with ambient light sensor – remained the same. But the new version had an inbuilt iSight video camera with 640 × 480 resolution and two stereo speakers placed under the keyboard for multimedia and AirPort Extreme (802.11a/b/g/n) port and Bluetooth 2.1+EDR for communication. The only USB 2.0 port, analog audio out and Mini DisplayPort video out with external 24-inch display support sum up the connectivity options. MacBook Air 2,1 sports an ultra-thin machined aluminum case with a full-size backlit keyboard with ambient light sensor. (more…)

MacBook 5,1 and MacBook 5,2

Apple announced a MacBook unibody aluminum model (13-inch MacBook 5,1) featuring a new Nvidia chipset at a Cupertino, California with the tagline: The spotlight turns to notebooks. Made of a unibody aluminium case with patered edges, this model had an integrated Nvidia GeForce 9400M graphics up to five times faster than the original MacBooks’ Intel chipset. The MacBook unibody aluminium model was thinner than the original polycarbonate MacBooks.

History of Apple: 2009 – The Most Significant Events

In 2009, iPhone, iPod and Mac had their moments. Indeed, every desktop and laptop in Apple’s product line underwent an update. The Mac mini saw its first update in a year-and-a-half in March, and in October, Apple updated the Mac mini again, this time adding faster processors and doubling memory capacity. Laptops remained a crucial part of Apple’s success, with the MacBook, MacBook Pro, and MacBook Air offerings all seeing changes. And for the 2009 fiscal year, Apple’s revenue rose 12 percent while its income increased 18 percent over 2008. Apple’s most significant hardware release in 2009 may have been one of its last—the iMac overhaul that included the 27-inch, Core i5-equipped model. Powered by a quad-core processor running at 2.66GHz, this all-in-one desktop tops the performance of a Mac Pro. (more…)

Mac Pro (3.33GHz Quad Core, Early 2009)

The Mac Pro (3.33GHz Quad Core, Early 2009) is a built-to-order configuration of the Mac Pro (2.66GHz Quad Core, Early 2009). The difference between this model and the 2.66 original is in the processor speed. (more…)

Mac Pro (2.93GHz Quad Core, Early 2009)

The Mac Pro (2.93GHz Quad Core, Early 2009) is a built-to-order configuration of the Mac Pro (2.66GHz Quad Core, Early 2009). The difference between this model and the 2.66 original is in the processor speed. Indeed, the new Mac Pro used Intel’s Xeon 3500 or 5500 quad-core processors which were part of the new Nehalem family of microprocessors. A few major architectural innovations had the new processors featuring all four cores on a single die. The architecture thus made its 8MB of L3 cache available to any and all processing cores. The memory controller was on-chip, giving the processor faster access to the main memory. It also eliminated memory latency by up to forty percent. Each new processor had full access to 8MB of L3 as well as a small amount of dedicated L2 cache, whereas the previous Mac Pro had no L3 cache.
