Two new MacBook Air laptops
Apple announced it would overhaul its MacBook Air line. Among the MacBook Air devices now available are 13.3-inch MacBook Air with a whopping 256 GB capacity and an 11.6-inch MacBook Air with a 64GB capacity and a $999 price-tag. The new MacBook Air computers eschew traditional hard drives for sold-state drives; Apple CEO Steve Jobs said the computer is the result of a theoretical â€śhook-upâ€ť between a MacBook and an Apple iPad.
Already, bloggers and analysts are frothing at a chance to try out the MacBook Air â€“ and lauding Apple for dropping the price-point on the svelte computer.
â€śI've never been a big fan of laptop computers, for the simple fact that they've always been too heavy to carry around on a daily basis, taking them everywhere I go, Dan Frommer of Business Insider writes today. â€śBut the new MacBook Air seems to finally be lightweight enough to carry around all the time, and cheap enough to justify buying as a secondary computer. It seems to finally be the laptop I've been waiting for.â€ť
