The folks at iFixit have managed to get their hands on a MacBook Air and taken it into the operating theater for a quick but very thorough autopsy.
Some interesting points to come out of the dissection:
- The redesigned MagSafe connector
- The fact that the lower half of the MacBook Air comes apart pretty easily but that the screen section is well stuck together
- That to replace the battery yourself you'll need to tackle 19 screws (fortunately, the battery cabling is attached by a simple connector)
- Components appear to be well protected from shock
- The multi-touch cpntroller is the same as used in the iPhone and the iPod touch - the the Broadcom BCM5974.
- The well-designed wireless antennas
Well worth taking a look at! I should be getting my hands on a MacBook Air soon, but I don't think that Apple would be all that pleased if I gave it back in pieces!
I am still left with one question thought - will it blend?
