Quotes from Steve Jobs Keynote:
"It fits inside the envelope, it's that small. This is what it looks like, isn't that incredible? World's thinnest notebook. Magnetic latch, 13.3-inch widescreen display."
"This is the new Macbook Air, you can get a feel for how thin it is. There it is."
"Amazing product here, full size keyboard, full size keyboard, full-size display. Isn't that amazing?"
Unprecedented 0.16-inches -- the thickest part of the Air is still thinner than the thinnest part of the Sony TZ series. It's so thin it fits in a manilla envelope.
Jobs then proceeded to put the MacBook Air into a manilla envelope to demonstrate.
Has iSight camera AND backlit keyboard to boot!
• A bit pricey - starts at $1799. No brainer optional 64GB Solid State drive [Correction: $999 Addon]
• No optical, but cool new external Superdrive that I would imagine people will buy for other Macs too. Apple should promote this! New feature on MacBook Air called "Remote Disc" allows software installs via CD or DVD over Airport wireless.
• This thing is UNbelievably thin - almost impossibly thin.
• A slight compromise of a 1.66Ghz Core 2 Duo - kinda makes me worry that it will be on the low end by the time Mac OS X 10.6 comes out.
• I'm happy it doesn't have wired ethernet - I see lots of potential for my USB to Ethernet adapter!!!
