Thin's in as Apple launches its slimmest product

At a time when IT firms are vying with each other to launch the cheapest laptops in the Indian market, here's one who would rather flaunt the thinnest.
Apple has introduced its new MacBook Air, the world's thinnest notebook, in the Indian market, following its US launch mid-January. The product, that will cost you Rs 96,100, will be available in the market in another two weeks through Apple authorized resellers and dealers. Though it's the thinnest notebook, MacBook Air has a full size keyboard and a 13-inch display. "We've built the world's thinnest notebook without sacrificing a full-size keyboard or a full-size 13-inch display," said Steve Jobs, CEO, Apple, in a media release. The MacBook measures 0.16 inches at its thinnest point, and has a height of 0.76 inches.
The LED-backlit glossy widescreen display of this MacBook Air is energy efficient. The keyboard is backlit too. It also has a built-in video camera for video conferencing. MacBook Air is powered by Intel Core 2 Duo processor and includes 2GB memory, 80 GB 1.8 inch hard drive and the latest Wi-Fi technology and Bluetooth.
MacBook Air gives up to five hours of battery life for wireless productivity. Apple's migration Assistant software also enables users to transfer files and applications from the old Mac to the new MacBook Air over the wireless network in no time.
Every MacBook Air comes with iLife'08 which is a significant update to Apple's digital lifestyle applications, which makes online photo and video sharing much easier. "Apple is always thinking of ways of giving its users new and innovative products which are helpful, user friendly and attractive.
MacBook Air is the new innovation from the Apple team, and we are hopeful that as always it
will appeal to the users," said Angeline Tan, product marketing manager, portables and wireless, Asia Pacific, Apple.
The new MacBook Air also embodies Apple's continuing environmental progress and uses materials which are highly desired by recyclers. For instance, it uses
an aluminum enclosure. This is also Apple's first mercury-free LCD display with arsenic-free glass. Added to this, MacBook Air also consumes the least amount of power of any Mac.
Apple also introduced its Time Capsule, a wireless backup for all Macs. "Apple has a wide user-base. MacBook Air is another treat
for tech lovers from the Apple team, and it has been built
keeping in mind the needs of the users," said Tan.
