My Complete Review of the all new October 2010 Apple MacBook Air! This new model features no hard drive or optical drive, and instead uses flash memory right on the motherboard for storage. That being said, Apple was able to have more room for a larger battery and create a much thinner and lighter profile. The lightning fast flash storage also allows for a new "Instant On" or "Instant Wake" feature, similar to what you would find on an iPad. Will the higher resolution display, flash memory and "improved" battery life be worth the upgrade? Watch to find out, and be sure to Subscribe!
