 The macbook air is here, We thought we would bring you the full specs in one place. Look out for the review over the next week or so. 

The crowds were wowed by the unveiling of the macbook air and it is easy to see why. Apple has packed a great deal of technology in a small space (the macbook air is the worlds thinnest laptop).

  “We’ve built the world’s thinnest notebook — without sacrificing a full-size keyboard or a full-size 13-inch display”, said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “When you first see MacBook Air, it’s hard to believe it’s a high-performance notebook with a full-size keyboard and display. But it is”. We certainly find it hard to believe! Here are the full specs.
