New MacBook Air !

Apple last night announced, finally a new MacBook Air , which Steve Jobs believes is the ‘future of all laptops’ . Now available in a 11″ and 13″ option . 11″ weighs just over 1KG.

Big news is that there is no traditional hard drive and uses Flash Ram which is twice as fast as a hard drive. Capacity though is lower than a normal hdd. This technology is the same as the iPad and also allows a ‘instant on’ laptop. Still no Optical drive but it does have 2 X USB ports.
