January 15, 2008. Steve Jobs was on stage. "There's something in the Air". "In a sentence, it's the world's thinnest notebook". The MacBook Air was introduced, it reshaped the concept of ultraportable. Razor thin profile, built-in battery, no optical disc and one single port, just like the new MacBook. Similarities don't end there, it also had a very low end custom designed processor (which core M is not) but it did have a fan, a very loud one It was available in two configurations as well, SLOW SSD was an option and it was very expensive ($1,800-$3100). What do you guys think? Will the new MacBook become the new mainstream Apple laptop that the second generation Airs now are? Will Apple realise one port is not enough and expand the MacBook line just like they did with current Airs? More importantly: Why didn't Apple LEARN from their mistakes?? I think this is an interesting topic (of speculation ), so let the comments flow!!
