Apple Launches Macbook Air

Well it was true after all! The “rumoured” thin notebook from Apple is indeed a reality now! The Macbook Air was launched today at the annual Apple conference – Macworld.

As widely expected, Apple is launching an ultra-thin notebook called the MacBook Air. At 0.76″ thick at its widest point, the three-pound Air has a wedgelike shape that tapers down to 0.16″ thick at the front base. LED backlighting on its 13.3-inch screen, multi-touch trackpad (which offers some nifty features like rotating photos, all in the touchpad), and a backlit keyboard. Specs are decent: 1.6 or 1.8GHz Intel Core 2 Duo (on a cleverly shrunken socket), 2GB of RAM, and an 80GB hard drive (or 64GB SSD option). No optical drive (of course), and just one USB port. It’ll set you back $1,799, which is on the inexpensive side for ultralight notebooks with specs like this. Ships in two weeks.

And in case you’re wondering, its price starts at $1799…that’s a little over Rupees 75K !!!

Other stuff that were also announced by Apple include:

  • iPhone Software Upgrades
  • iTunes Movie Rentals
  • Time Capsule Wireless Hard Drive
