New MacBook Air 2010: Next Generation MacBooks

So what can we take from today’s Apple Event? Well for starters a shiny thinner new MacBook Air is coming out soon!
We knew by the name “Back to the Mac” that we would not get a Verizon or white iPhone 4; however we got near enough the next best thing.

So what can we expect from the new mac? First of all we know that this is the thinnest model we have ever seen. When the Mac is at it’s thinnest it is a bare 0.11 inches and at its thickest it is 0.68 inches. This slender and ultra light design will increase compatibility and convenience. The tiny MacBook weighs a feather like 2.9 pounds and comes with a unibody construction.

The screen is the same size as its predecessor, staying with 13.3 inches with an LED backlit display. Others features include a 1440×900 pixel display, Core 2 Duo processor, Facetime camera, Nvidia Gefore 320m graphics and a battery with 7 hours of “wireless web” use and 30 days of standby. This sleek new design looks very impressive indeed. The image and specifications are courtesy of Engadget and the MTV Blog.

A smaller version is available with an 11.6 inch screen and weight of only 2.3 pounds. It has all of the specifications of the 13 inch model except a battery life of only 5 hours. Both models are available in the US from today and are pretty pricey, but what did you expect?

The 13.3 inch will cost you $1299 for 128GB and the 256GB version will set you back a whopping $1599. With the 11.6 inch Mac you will have to pay $999 for a 64GB memory and if that’s not enough, shell out $1199 for the 128GB model. Are you excited by these new Macs that are out? Leave us your thoughts on them.

    I dont understand the pricing, the 11" version will do things no better than an ipad for the everyday user, and the 13" version is as expensive as a macbook pro 13 and the pro will do everything better (obviously)
