Steve Jobs shows the MacBook Air
Apple's Manager Steve Jobs has launched the world's thinnest laptop, the MacBook Air which almost disappears when you flip it on its side.
"There's clearly something in the air today," said Jobs, who wasn't kidding. He delivered the world's thinnest notebook computer.
The laptop is 0.406 centimeters thick at its thinnest point and 1.93 centimeters at its thickest.
It will cost USD 1800 for the basic model, which is powered by Intel Core 2 Duo processors running at 1.6 GHz or 1.8 GHz, a 13.3-inch display, five hours of battery life, 802.11n Wi-Fi, and a large trackpad.
It also comes standard with 2GB of memory, an 80GB hard drive, and best of all a fully backlit keyboard, which not only makes it easier to type in the dark but, more importantly, looks pretty cool.
