    Right


    So I was having a brain fart about the microphone on the current gen MBA 13.

    I thought the microphone was in the screen, next to the camera. (see picture 1).

    Yes, they are there, look closely


    But then again, the microphone is next to the stereo jack. (see picture 2)

    So, what are these tiny holes in the screen bezel?

    please do explain, ye experts of the internets@

    Oops, didn't read. I think it's probably the ambient light sensor. Try putting your thumb over it and see if your screen dims.

    Can the Air automatically adjust display brightness based on ambient light? If so, it could be a light sensor.

    It's an LED that lights up when the camera is active.

    confirm!

    the MBA 2010 does not have an ambient light sensor.
    If you need a proof go on system preferences and click on display.
    You will see that the check box adjust brightness automatically is missing.
