Apple sells 1 million MacBook Airs in opening three months

First three months of Air sales break records

Apple sold more than 1 million MacBook Airs in the three months after the revamped laptop launched in October, new figures have revealed.

The figures, which come from Concord Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo and claim Apple shipped 1.1 million 11- and 13-inch MacBook Airs in the months leading up to Christmas last year, mark the latest edition ultra-portable MacBook as one of the company’s most successful Mac launches ever.

With prices for the 11-inch MacBook Airs starting in the UK at £867, 13-inch models beginning at £1,122, the extra slim Macs reportedly accounted for 40 per cent of all Apple MacBook sales in the final quarter of 2010, outselling the company’s flagship MacBook Pro range at a ratio of two to one.

Measuring up at just 300x192x30mm and a mere 1.06kg in weight, the 11-inch Apple MacBook Air, is a true beaut of the tech industry with a claimed 5 hour battery life joined by a 1.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo dual-core core processor and 2GB of RAM of both the 64GB and 128GB SSD offerings as standard.
