With the launch of every new product, no matter how big or small, there will always be things that don’t quite suit everyone. The new MacBook Air is no different, with many different things that seem to be getting on peoples nerves or not being to their taste. At GearZap, we are determined to improve the experience that everyone has with their device, which is why we have a range of products that can improve your new MacBook Air.
Firstly, we have been hearing that the picture quality on the new Air’s are not all that great, and even heard in some instances a ‘gradient’ effect is being displayed on peoples screens. We searched high and low to find a solution to this, and managed to find this SGP MacBook screen protector:
Available as a MacBook Air 11 screen protector and as a MacBook Air 13 screen protector, this ‘crystal clear’ protector is not only 100% transparent and therefore doesn’t hinder your screen brightness, it is also designed to improve the images on screen. That’s right – improve. It uses a unique glass-like coating which protects your screen from scratches and damage and increases image sharpness and improves contrast.
We have also heard that the new MacBook Air has a few problems with overheating. To overcome this problem, we have a ThermaPak HeatShift pad:
The HeatShift pad is specifically designed as a 13″ cooling pad, but there’s nothing stopping use for an 11″ either. The pad is cleverly designed to disperse hot air through its channels of airflow and also through its unique cooling crystals that change from a solid to a gel like state, and extract heat during all stages – even after several hours of usage.
One problem that we have been hearing about is specifically for the MacBook Air 11, but this product can also be used with the 13″ so may be beneficial to all users and owners of the new Air, the Moshi MacBook card reader:
The new MacBook Air 11 doesn’t come with an SD card slot, meaning that the many people with an SD card are unable to easily transfer their files onto their MacBook. This card reader takes away that problem, as it plugs into the USB port of the MacBook Air – but don’t think that it wastes one of your USB ports, it comes with a dual-USB port on it, meaning you actually gain one rather than losing one! It is actually compatible with all memory card types, and its brushed aluminium finish matches that of the MacBook Air, and the two compliment each other perfectly.
According to users that have compared using the MacBook Air 11 to the MacBook Air 13, the MacBook Air 11 is not as comfortable to use as the MacBook Air 13, due its palm rest. We have a solution to that also! With the Power Support protection pack:
The primary purpose of this MacBook Air protection pack is, as suggested in the name, to protect your MacBook Air. It comes with a palm and trackpad protector, keeping the bottom area of your new Air protected from scratches, damage and fingerprints. However, the palm protector is actually made from a cushioned material with increases comfort during use – making use of the MacBook Air 11″ 2011 much more comfortable to use.
