    That's correct. I realized the screen is backlit only after posting (woops)

    The keyboard got the backlight in the 2011 model. Prior MBA models did not have a backlit KB.

    No, the 2010 model is the only Air that came without a keyboard backlight. Prior models did have one.

    What this man says.

    The 2010 model dropped the backlit KB, for whatever reason.
