The all new Apple MacBook Air

Apple have just announced the new MackBook Air. This bad boy is in essence a cross between the old Macbook Air and the iPad, taking the best of both worlds. Benefits from the iPad? Instant on... great battery life, amazing standby time... solid state storage... and it's thinner and lighter. It's 0.68-inches thick at its thickest, 0.11-inches at its thinnest, and weighs 2.9 pounds (Again its shockingly thinner than the the old MacBook Air which was 0.76-inches thick and weighed 3 pounds). Like previously the new MacBook Air has a unibody construction, but now comes with one of those big new glass trackpads. They're also sticking with a 13.3-inch screen, running at a 1440 x 900 resolution (with an 11.6-inch "little brother" to boot). There's SSD storage, a 1.86GHz or 2.13GHz Core 2 Duo processor (the same ones available on existing MacBook Airs), GeForce 320m graphics, and 2GB of RAM standard. Apple claims the battery life tests offer 7 hours of "wireless web" and 30 days of "standby." Prices start at $1,299 for 128GB and $1,599 for 256GB of storage; they're available today at Apple  website.
