The World's Thinnest Laptop will soon have competition. Macworld is reporting that (at least) two unnamed manufacturers intend to use the tiny Intel chip that powers the MacBook Air. Steve Jobs made a big deal about it at this month's Macworld Expo keynote address. The chip uses Intel's 965GMS chip...

Ah, it is that magical time after an Apple announcement: the big media reviews are starting to roll in. As you might be aware Apple loans out new hardware to technology journalists to put through their paces. The MacBook Air, being a new product, was delivered to a few tech heavy hitters (with the ...

We seemed to have overlooked the MacBook Air Developer Note in all the news at Macworld. This note details exactly what's lurking inside that thin marvel of modern Industrial Design. It also lends credence to reports that the external SuperDrive will only work with the MacBook Air. The Air's USB po...

I can't stop talking about the MacBook Air. It's so thin, so light and so gosh-darn sexy (in the way that only a machine shaped like a two thousand-dollar toilet lid can be). Since the topic seems to have worn thin with my kids -- my 4-year-old insists that the lack of a Firewire port is ludicrous a...

When Steve finished up his keynote last week he introduced Randy Newman and after-wards lots of people said, 'at least it wasn't John Mayer again.' I have nothing against Mr. Mayer, myself, but it was nice to have a little variety in the keynote musical presentation. Lest you think that Mr. Job...

We all know what the MacBook Air looks like, but what we all want to know is: what the heck does the box look like? Thanks to a briefing that Apple had for the Japanese press we now know. Check out the whole Flickr set for some photos featuring all the products Apple announced last week. If you're ...

Is anyone else worried about Apple's obsession with being thin? This issue has come up before, but while last time around it was supposed to be serious, this time it's just plain silly. While Apple is crowing about releasing the world's thinnest notebook, nobody's thinking about the self esteem of ...

After the keynote we naturally raced to the gigantic Apple booth to get our grubby hands on the MacBook Air. Watch Scott compare it to his now-beastly MacBook Pro. Also watch the nifty new multi-touch trackpad action. UPDATE: Silly me, I ignored Apple's CamelCase naming scheme. All better. Also ava...

Well, this was inevitable. When Steve Jobs dramatically presented the MacBook Air by removing it from a manila envelope, two enterprising artists saw an opportunity, and the result is AirMail. It's a vinyl laptop sleeve for the MacBook Air that looks just like -- you guessed it -- a standard issue m...

Apple's new MacBook Air laptop is thin, sleek, very stylish, but we also imagine very easily lost in a pile of stacked paper. Its gaming capabilities? On par with the MacBook, thanks to the same graphics processor (Intel GMA X3100 with 144MB DDR2 SDRAM). We just hope it'll play Spore. Check out the...

As he usually does, Steve went on CNBC after this morning's keynote presentation to pitch his company's newest goodie. In this case, the MacBook Air. He talks about the size, of course, but also the relationship between Apple and Intel as well as the process of building the MacBook Air: "...We built...

OK, the keynote is over. We're all aflutter over the new products and software (in fact, my iPhone is wiggling with delight). We can't wait to get our hands on a MacBook Air. How about you? What was your personal highlight from Steve's keynote? The MB Air? The Apple TV 2? Yet another chance to suppo...

Simply install the Remote Disk software on the Mac or PC that has an optical drive and that drive will now be available to t...
