Maybe you guys have missed out the post publishing on the blog featuring the thinnest upcoming MacBook Air Knockoff version from the China, if you missed out no problem because finally, we are there with the upcoming knockoff project of some China’s mad geek. China grey-markets are known for creating knockoff version of the original devices, and especially known for introducing the Apple’s non released devices such as the model of iPhone 5, which we have seen earlier this year.
However, here comes the Chinese knockoff Apple’s MacBook Air known as AirBook in the market, and easily available in the market with the price tag of $499. The AirBook can easily make you fool with its painfully original MacBook Air similar design, but running the Windows. You can’t say that its fake by looking it in first view, it features almost everything that Apple has given to the MacBook Air.
As reviewed by the famous MIC Gadget blog, the AirBook is made up of the silver plastic unibody instead of MacBook Air’s popular aluminium, seems that Chinese folk didn’t get any aluminium stock in the market, as the Apple is already accused of making bulk orders for the aluminum for their products. MIC Gadget notes the faux aluminium finish is even used on the plastic interior. It comes with a 13-inch LED backlit, glossy display (1366 x 768) and measure 13.1 inches by 8.83 inches. As for thickness, the AirBook goes from 0.2 inches at its thinnest to 0.75 inches on the other end. Compare that to the 13-inch MacBook Air’s 0.11-0.68 inch height.
If you read out its specification, you may notice that it can’t even compare with MacBook Air, but in reality, and look-wise anyone can easily consider it as Apple’s powerful MacBook Air. If you are further interested to know about the China’s knockoff version of the MacBook Air, can heads up to the MIC Gadget and look for their lengthy review.
