MacBook Air: the world's thinest notebook


Following their biggest hit on the world of technology, Apple Inc. now introduces the world's thinnest computer notebook ever built for users like us. Apple CEO Steve Jobs boasts the product's features during its press release in San Francisco, California.



With a 13.3-inch display, a built-in iSight camera, and a backlit "full-sized" keyboard, MacBook Air is less than an inch thick, 0.76 inches at its beefiest and just 0.16 inches at its thinnest to be exact. The new computer runs on an Intel Core 2 Duo with 1.6Ghz clockspeed. MacBook Air, which weighs only 3 pounds, also features a 1.8-inch 80GB hard disk drive, with an optional upgrade of a 64GB flash-based solid state drive, and a multitouch Liquid Crystal Display that allows you to expand your photos by just a two-fingered gesture, similar to the Apple iPhone.



This another Apple innovation however, does not have a built-in internal optical media drive. But according to Jobs, Mac users should not worry because they can download their favorite movies and music through the internet, and install new software via an optical drive of a separate PC or Mac. Furthermore, the company now finalizes its Movie Rental service on iTunes Store. This means that users can now rent movies online and watch them over their computers, but with an high-speed internet connection of course. Apple is partnering with 20th Century Fox, Warner Brothers, Walt Disney, Paramount, Universal and Sony on the service, which will work on Macs, Windows-based machines, iPhones, iPods or Apple TV set-top boxes and will be available late February 2008.
