MacBook Air and FLASH-based Hard Drives: The Quest for Instant On

History is always a good thing to sequester when dealing with electronic gadgets, and Apple Inc. is no exception. They always deliver the goods, be it a new device, the Apple iPad, the Apple iPhone 4, refreshed Apple iPod Nano, Apple iPod Touch, Apple iPod Shuffle, and the Apple iTV all deserving of their own special blog articles – as soon as they become newsworthy, as all the Tech News uproar is STILL Tablet- centric, Silicon Valley still smarting from its sudden appearance out of nowhere, tackled, like American football, to the ground straight out of left field. But the spotlight is still on the recent “one more thing” event hosted by Apple CEO Steve Jobs, in which invitations were sent out, shaped like an Apple Logo being cut out of paper, turnstile 3D oriented and an image of a Lion in the background. Trademark Apple, keeping all their cards to their chest until the last minute only to leave you hanging in suspense as the Apple Fanboys feed on the rumours. But when the event landed on Wednesday 20th October 2010, the obvious was true: The Lion was indeed the name for the latest iteration of Mac OS, specifically called Mac 10.7 Lion, the eight major Operating System release for the Mac, with specs only a true Apple Fanboy would gush over.

So when it became apparent that aside from the new OS, there was also a revamp of the now famously pricey ultra-portable laptop du jeur, the Apple MacBook Air, everyone (gasp!) was tackled from left field, akin to the football play, yet again! An alignment of two (2) older products to the interactive iOS 4.0 Platform was totally unexpected, but reasonable, given prior predictions from CNET Blog Network Writer Brooke Crothers. Indeed, with such an excellent product and specs for the Tech types to drool over for the older model, the specs of the newer model seems very blasé, most notable being the fact that at least CNET Blog Network Writer Brooke Crothers was spot on with one prediction – the 11.6” screen along with the regular 13”screen, the 11.6” screen effectively a Netbook, albeit disappointingly not an end-to-end Gorilla Glass screen. But wait there just a second! Still drool-worthy is the concept introduced by Apple MacBook Air, which Apple CEO Steve Jobs emphatically insists is not a NetBook, is an improvement of a previous concept built on by the previous Apple MacBook Air, that being the concept of Instant-On. This, folks, is a game changer for not only the Laptop but the Netbook world, as low power and Instant-On are characteristics of tablets – or should I say THE Tablet, the Apple iPad. So how did Apple achieve this noteworthy game changing feat? Thus my quest for knowledge begins from the same CNET Blog Network Writer Brooke Crothers and his informative article on the advent of managed NAND.
