Anyone who hasn’t been living under a rock recently is sure to understand the impact that Apple has had on the simplicity and convenience of technology in the modern world. The iMac, iBook, iPod, and iPhone have all made some very big splashes in their respective markets over the past few years, transforming Apple, lagging after once being at the forefront of the personal computer industry, back into the “it” technology company for the 21st century.
Now comes the announcement that Apple and Steve Jobs are released the MacBook Air, which will weigh just three pounds, while measuring only .16 to .76 inches in thickness. So thin is the newest Apple gadget that it is said to fit EASILY inside a manila envelope (now to really impress us, find someone who will file multiple MacBook Air laptops into a file accordion.)
With a 13.3-inch widescreen LED display and built-in iSight, the McBook Air comes with “a multi-touch trackpad, Intel Core 2 Duo processors running at 1.6 GHz or 1.8 GHz, black LED backlit keyboard, ambient light sensor, micro-DVI port, magnetic latch closing mechanism, 1.8-inch hard-drive in standard 80 GB form or optional 64 GB solidstate drive, 802.11n wireless, Bluetooth 2.1/EDS, five-hour battery life, optional external SuperFrice, 2 GB memory, and eco-friendly internal components like fully aluminum case, mercury and lead-free display,” according to the Born Rich blog.
We’d say we can’t wait to get our hands on one, but we might only need one to pick it up.
