That's it, no more MBA...
I guess we should be happy there are still some notebooks made by Apple. :(

By the same logic the Mac Pro is dead too.

Finally, I hope Apple learned its lesson and starts making decent computers like the iPad. Who needs those other computers anyway. They will be all killed within a year, because there was no update to them.

LOL! I don't think the MBA is "killed". But considering the relatively minor upgrades to the 13" MBP, I think the MBA will at best see a spec bump relatively soon (graphics upgrade and faster processor (2.2 and 2.53?)) and there is a larger overhaul (with design change, larger battery life, glass trackpad etc) in the works. It's a great computer in the lineup that I hope doesn't die. There definitely is a market for it, if they up the specs

Yeah, Apple TV is still there too...
Come on, be realistic. It's gone, dead.

Same reason they didn't update the MBPs last Tuesday and have a bunch of Apple news all in one week/day. Either a) they're still working on it, b) they want to stretch out news coverage so that nothing gets overlooked or c) they are waiting for a bigger update to it, which is still a bit away.

a) I don't see this one being probable since soldering 4 gigs worth of ram on a logic board and putting a 2.26ghz processor in doesn't take too much work.

b) It's not like they had a keynote today, they put the new machines on the website, hardly think adding an updated MBA would cause for machines to be overlooked.

c) You really want to wait for a bigger update? This computer has been the same since oct. 2008, how much more time would you like?

Precisely why I think a larger update than a spec bump (more RAM, faster processor) is necessary. It's missing many features of the newer laptops and the design hasn't changed in all that time.
