The New Apple MacBook "Air"
Today January 15, 2008 Apple announced their latest product line at the MacWorld conference in San Francisco… The MacBook “Air”.
It features a 13.3-inch backlit widescreen LED, a full-size backlit keyboard and a track-pad with multi-touch gesture support similar to the iPhone's 'pinch, rotate and swipe' controls. There is even an onboard iSight camera for video conferencing.
Steve Jobs of Apple stated, “We've built the world's thinnest notebook without sacrificing a full-size keyboard or a full-size 13-inch display”.
The price of the Mac Book Air will be $1799. There are two processor options, a 1.6 or a 1.8GHz Intel Core 2 Duo with a 4MB Level 2 cache. There is also 2GB of 667MHz DDR2 onboard RAM, 802.11n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
Unfortunately, there is no optical drive in the MacBook Air, but if it is imperative that you do have one, Apple will sell you an color matched external USB SuperDrive specifically for the MacBook Air for $99.
This really looks nice, it seems like Apple has done it again.
