Apple launches Super Thin Notebook

The headline product for MacWorld has to be the MacBook Air. It’s built to be a wireless machine. It is really thin, at 0.76 inches at its thickets in the back and only 0.16 inches at the front. It weighs in at about 3 pounds and definitely looks better than a MacBook.

It has a 13.3 inch screen, a solid state drive option, a 1.6 ghz Intel Core 2 Duo microprocessor. It is so thin that it could fit inside an interoffice manila envelope. It has a full size backlit keyboard, with multi-touch gestures, iSight video camera built-in, and an LED backlit display, 2 gigabytes of memory standard, an 80 GB hard drive standard with an option of 64 GB SSD. It will cost just $1,799.

There is no CD/DVD drive. That’s because the machine will wireless install software, including hefty programs such as Mac Office 2008. Jobs said Apple has made it easy to install software wirelessly, without a compromise. With Wi-Fi turned on, it will have five hours of battery life.
Apple is taking orders today online and it will ship in two weeks.

It has to be the thinnest notebook in the world. It may not enjoy the similar hype to iPhone but its the kind of device that we would all like to get our hands on except that its priced beyond the budget of many. I would give this product a 8 out of 10. What do you think?
