MacBook Air, the thinnest notebook from Apple

Today at Macworld, Apple has unveiled the MacBook Air, the world's thinnest notebook. The MacBook Air measures only .16 inches at its thinnest point. Just last year, I think it was Toshiba or Fujitsu who introduced the world's thinnest notebook and only several months after, here comes the MacBook Air, bumping those notebooks out of the top.

The gorgeous new notebook from Apple features a 13.3 inch screen, built in web-cam, 1.6 to 1.8 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 2GB of memory, and an 80GB hard drive. Plus, as if putting their multi touch technology on the iPhone and iPod Touch isn't enough, Apple also incorporated the multi touch technology on the MacBook Air via its trackpad.

Of course, at .16 inches thin, you can't exactly expect the MacBook Air to have an optical drive, so you have to purchase a compact external drive for an additional $99.

The Apple MacBook Air will be available in two weeks and has a starting price of $1,799. See you in line!
