    I'm wondering if I can connect a mic or a headphone to the 2.5mm audio connector in the MBA.

    Right know I can use this connector for both input/output in my MBP.

    It can be done in the MBA as well?

    I've been wondering this too. I think The 13" pro can, so I'm guessing this can too. My 13" i7 comes next week...

    First it seems to be a 3.5mm plug (correct me if I'm wrong) ;-)

    and in the spec page of the new MBA it says "Support for Apple Earphones with Remote and Mic":D So you can use whatever Earphone + Mic combo that supports the iPhone on your MBA.

    Thanks for the 3.5mm correction, and for the information in Apple's website.
    But I'm hoping that someone with a MBA can prove that it works just like MBP.

    I can confirm that, indeed, the full shebang works – remote & mic.
