Macbook Air review

Steve Jobs announced the “Macbook Air” at the Macworld Expo 2008. At 12.74″ wide, 8.9″ deep, max 0.76″ high and weighing 3 lbs Macbook Air is probably the thinnest and lightest laptop around.


  • Built-in iSight camera, speaker and microphone
  • 13.3″ LED backlit screen
  • Multi-touch trackpad that supports two-finger scrolling, pinch, rotate, swipe, tap, double-tap, and drag capabilities (like the iphone)
  • 1.6GHz or 1.8 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 80 GB hard drive, 2 GB DDR2 SDRAM
  • 802.11a/b/g compatible and built-in Bluetooth 2.1
  • Manufacturer claimed battery life of 5 hours
  • A port hatch that flips down to reveal a USB 2.0 port, a headphone jack, and a micro-DVI port
  • No optical drive

Starting at $1799 it may be worth the price.
