New Apple MacBook Air announced - October 14th 2008

Apple held a press event today, October 14th 2008. They introduced new MacBook Pros, MacBooks and detailed below a revision to the MacBook Air. There was no actual design changes to this thin wonder, rather revised specification. This was a shame, but if you think about it, the Air already had multi-touch and was ultra thin. So some welcome changes, especially on the graphics front, with beefier NVidia graphics.

  • Intel 9400M graphics
  • 13.3-inch display (no change here)
  • 120GB hard drive
  • 128GB SSD option
  • Mini Display port (for external monitor)
  • 1.6GHz Core2Duo
  • 2GB RAM
  • £1,299 (for the HD version)
  • £1,799 (for the 128GB SD version, which also gets you a 1.86GHz Core2Duo)
  • Both new models ship early November

I will bring you more news and images as they become available.
