New from Apple: MacBook Air, less than an inch thick

Live blogging Steve Jobs:

10:13 am display is LED backlit. iSight is built-in. MacBook-like keyboard, but with an ambient light sensor
10:12 am Magnetic latch, 13.3″ widescreen display
10:12 am MacBook Air is 0.16″ to 0.76″. The thickest part of the MacBook Air is thinner than the thinnest part of the Sony. It fits inside a envelope
10:10 am We thought 3 lbs is a good target weight, but there was too much compromise with the other features
10:10 am Most people think of Sony TZ series when they think of thin notebooks. Competition specs: 3 lbs, .8-1.2 inches, 11 or 12″ display, miniature keyboard, and slower processor.
10:08 am “The World’s Thinnest Notebook”
10:08 am As you know, Apple makes the best notebooks in the industry. Today, we are introducing a third kind of notebook. It’s called the MacBook Air

  1. I can imagine that this will be a very popular notebook. As I carry my old notebook around with me everyday, it is killing me, because it is so heavy.

    I still haven’t figured out how to get rid of some of the weight which consists of chargers, literature, application forms, extra CD disks and DVDs.
