This resolution is equal to a quadrupling of the current Air&#39;s 1366x768 display, and shares the exact pixel density of 264 pixels per inch with the current <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/apple/apple-ipad-5/review">iPad Air</a>, making it a suitable alternative for iFans who want a larger display than a tablet. That quadrupling factor is important: it&#39;s how Apple has scaled screens for iPhones and iPads in the past, which makes it simple for app developers to optimise for.</p> <p dir="ltr">More importantly, modeling after the iPad Air or iPad mini means that the same technology could be used on the refreshed MacBook Air. The economies of scale and supply chain accustomed to the high demand for the Retina iPads can transfer easily to the production of the 2014 MacBook Air. But like the refreshed&nbsp;iPad mini with Retina display, the additional cost of a high-resolution display could deal your wallet - and the laptop&#39;s battery life - a pretty hard slap.</p> <p dir="ltr">Not so for photographers - they&rsquo;ll most likely take the bait and shell out that extra cash to get more pixels in order to view their masterpieces on an ultra light and slim workstation.</p> <p dir="ltr">Us too.

Embark has been around since 2011 and makes apps for iOS and Android that provide info about public transport for US cities including New York, San Francisco and Chicago. It would seem that Apple wants to integrate the technology behind these apps into Maps in order to bolster the service against rivals like Google Maps (which already offers pretty impressive public transport information). Embark’s apps have apparently disappeared from Google Play, but are still available on iOS.

The newly-specced models certainly don't lack in performance - even the base models are stacked - and that's thanks to Intel's Core i5 and i7 processors, Thunderbolt and Mac OS X Lion. This is undoubtedly the best MacBook Air refresh to date, so naturally we had to put it in front of the camera. Warning: you will want one.</p> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-legacy-url"> <div class="field-label">Legacy URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> /news/computers-and-consoles/news-nugget/new-video-macbook-air-2011-review </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/apple/new-video-macbook-air-2011-review/news" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.stuff.tv/apple/new-video-macbook-air-2011-review/news#comments Apple MacBook Air Wed, 27 Jul 2011 13:15:59 +0000 Lucy Hedges 417227 at http://www.stuff.tv MacBook Air rumour round-up http://www.stuff.tv/apple/macbook-air-rumour-round/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> The MacBook Air&#039;s arrival is only two days away, but what&#039;s the 411 on the rumour front? </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="500" height="468" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/mba_0.jpg?1364401696" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="500" height="50" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/new-twitter-banner_3190.jpg?1364401696" /> </div> </div> </div> <p><strong>The backlit keyboard is making a comeback</strong></p> <p>The backlit keyboard originally introduced on the<a href="http://www.stuff.tv/review/apple-macbook-air-2008"> first-gen MacBook Air</a> is set to make a wondrous return.

The timing is reasonably predictable, confirmed by low stock near the announcement and – in case you haven’t noticed – people on the internet become quite excited. A refresh, on the other hand, is a more stealthy operation – no redesigns or fancy announcements, just a Post-It note where the Apple Store normally lives, followed by a spec jump.</p> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-legacy-url"> <div class="field-label">Legacy URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> /news/computers-and-consoles/rumour-mill/upgraded-macbook-air-to-hit-in-may </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/apple/upgraded-macbook-air-hit-may/news" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.stuff.tv/apple/upgraded-macbook-air-hit-may/news#comments Apple MacBook Air Wed, 27 Apr 2011 12:13:42 +0000 Paddy Smith 416321 at http://www.stuff.tv Rumour Mill – Apple to offer logic board upgrades again http://www.stuff.tv/apple/rumour-mill-%E2%80%93-apple-offer-logic-board-upgrades-again/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> If there’s something strange with your MacBook Air, who you gonna call? </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="356" height="236" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/2070108aamn_0.jpg?1364403795" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="440" height="76" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/194370c3cbli_210.jpg?1364403795" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>Looks like Apple’s hardware woes aren’t stopping at signal issues on the iPhone 4.
