Frequently Asked Questions
Does the newest MacBook Air have the same hinge problems the older models do?
I purchased the newest MacBook Air model about two weeks ago and I was just wondering if they have the same hinge problems as the models before them did.
It may be difficult to say this early. Things like hinges tend to break over time. The new Airs are too new to have developed that kind of long term damage.
If you have an older Air for comparison, does the hinge look different on the new Air? If the hinge looks identical (for example, I haven't been able to detect any differences in hinge design across a wide range of iBooks) then they probably just used the same hinge.
If it looks different, hopefully Apple redesigned it to make it sturdier.
One tip for keeping it around a long time: If the screen starts to flop around a bit when you move the laptop, try to support the screen with one hand so there isn't as much wiggle. I notice my PowerBook's hinges are getting floppier with time, so I've started doing that.
What is the ease of dissembley of macbook air 2010 11.6 and 13.3 inch models?
What is the ease of dissembly of macbook air late 2010 of both 11.6" and 13.3" model? WIll it work afterwards?

If you just want to get the bottom case off, it's not that hard. If you want to actually start removing major components (aside from the SSD module, which is simple to remove), then it gets to be a much bigger pain in the butt. If you don't know what you're doing, then don't even try.

Exchanging macbook air for newer model?
I was given an 11" macbook air as a gift from my grandparents and it's the older core 2 duo model....will apple (or best buy) let me exchange this macbook air for the newer i5 models? It has never been opened and is still sealed?
If they said they will then they will
I know that apple has that set up to buy back what they sold you so you can get a new one
Don't know about never opened boxes how they will handle that
That is only good penny and cents
That is why Apple is the biggest profit making company on the planet as told on CNN news yesterday
