The first drastic overhaul of the Air design since its creation, the 2010 Air reached a number of milestones. It gained a second USB port, for one, on a profile matching other Apple notebooks of its day. And, perhaps in a nod to the 12" PowerBook of days gone by, the Air was offered in an 11" size.

It was also possible to customize the onboard memory for the first time in the series, allowing up to 4 GB at build time.

Powered by an NVIDIA 320M MCP, the 2010 Airs were already faster and more power-efficient than their forebears. But to make it even faster, flash storage was now the default, with the 11" offering 64 GB and options for more spacious SSD's. The 13" added an SDXC card slot and doubled onboard flash to 128 GB by default, also increasing native screen resolution beyond the low-end MacBook Pro (1440x900 vs. 1280x800)

Other Notes:

  • Supports Power Nap via SMC firmware update
  • Carries SDXC card slot on right face
