Apple's latest MacBook Air 13" model for mid-2011 adds a Thunderbolt port and a whole lot more. Most exciting is the 1.7GHz Intel Core i5 CPU inside that turns the Air from dawdling waif to razor-thin rocket ship. It's plenty fast, but if you have a greater need for speed, there's a 1.8GHz Core i7 option. The Thunderbolt Air has a 1440 x 900 LED backlit display, and a backlit keyboard too. Apple's excellent, large glass trackpad works perfectly with Mac OS X Lion's many gestures and this is the first Mac model to ship with that new OS. Design wise, little has changed from the last generation, and that's fine by us: it's still an impossibly thin and light wedge of metal that looks and feels better than any other notebook on the planet.
