Going a few steps further than we did, iFixit has fully disassembled the MacBook Air. Along the way, they have found quite a few curious findings about its components, from the actual size and weight of the screen to the number of screws used to hold everything together:


β€’ The MacBook Air uses 88 screws. The back panel uses 10.

β€’ It has 16 RAM chips in two columns of 8.


β€’ The multitouch controller is exactly the same as the iPhone and iPod touch (go economies of scale).

β€’ The LCD LED display is 3 millimeters (0.11 inches).

β€’ Entire LCD assembly is 465 grams (16.4 ounces).

β€’ Drive has foam padding and rubber bumpers, like the iPod.


β€’ Drive is the same as the one in the 80GB iPod classic.

β€’ It has a 20mm speaker.

Head to iFixIt for all the shots. [iFixIt]
