MacBook Air

Apple stunned a nation, or at least those who haven't been paying attention to the rumors, today with the unveiling of a very thin new MacBook called the MacBook Air. 'The world's thinnest notebooks' starts at $1799 and comes with a 13.3 inch display (LED), a full keyboard, built-in 802.11n WiFi, Bluetooth, built-in iSight, and a multitouch trackpad that lets you use gestures to control a number of actions on the MacBook Air. Some other stats include:

  • 1.6 GHz or 1.8 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor with 4MB L2 cache
  • 2GB of RAM
  • 80GB 1.8-inch hard drive (with optional 64 gig solid state drive
  • 1 USB 2.0 port

What it doesn't come with are built-in ethernet ports, FireWire, and optical drive, or enough graphics power to power a 30 inch Display (but you can hook up a 20 or 23 inch display via a built in mini-DVI port).
