Apple’s 11-inch MacBook Air 2011 Features Intel Core i5 Processor and SSD Memory

Apple Macbook AirCertainly it is common knowledge by now that the 13-inch MacBook Air is both powerful and thin, but no matter how narrow the laptop, some people are just not satisfied. So the 11-inch is a two-inch compromise to fulfill these needs.

At first sight, the 11-inch model is just a smaller rendition of the 13-inch, even matching the appearance of last year’s. The unifying feature in the design is the uni-body casing.

When clicking on a bad picture it will take the user to a window that reads like this: “To help protect your computer Apple Web Security have detected Trojans and ready to remove them. Cancel – Remove all”. As you can see the rather bizarre wording of the “alert” can make any English speaker suspicious but the appearance of the message might trick anybody. Users that have just started to use Mac might be fooled easier since they are not aware and don’t know what to expect as an alert.

When this message pops up, it’s trying to get the user to install a certain program that will “remove all Trojans”. The user is probably thinking that the computer is really infected so he or she will most likely install it.
