MacBook AIR, an ultralight Apple laptop was announced today!

See a description and photos courtesy of Infosync.


  • fast (1.6 or 1.8GHz)
  • 2GB RAM
  • 80GB drive (larger than the 40GB I  saw predicted a few weeks ago) or 64GB solid state.
  • built in camera, microphone, and speaker. 
  • Wifi and Bluetooth, of course.


  • only an audio jack, so no ability to use high-quality plug-in headphones with Dolby mic for Skype calling (my favorite on the road)
  • only one USB port
  • 5 hour battery
  • no ethernet (doesn't matter to me, but others are already writing about it)


  • 3 pounds - my Dell is 2 pounds, but the transformers have always weighed a ton on Dell power cords and been super light on Apple, so this might be even carrying weight
Price: $1,799 or $3,098.  Delivery starts in a few weeks.
