    I stand corrected and honestly it isnt the first time I've been wrong. But, honestly do you need to be such a arrogant a****** about it??

    It would have been nice to receive a private message saying that the information i provide was incorrect. But no... thanks a lot dude!!

    one hole is the mic, the other one the camera status LED, just like on the macbook. I suspect the mono speaker will be under the keyboard.... who uses those anyways? the sound of inbuilt laptop speakers are awful... lol.

    there are two holes, and there is a separate hole for the light, check out the page, the green light is RIGHT next to it, i know for sure one of the holes is the mic, but whats the other one for? cant be speakers, that thing is small!!!

    Of course its not the speaker, like you said, it's far too small
    Just to wrap up, the MBA does have built in speakers; there's your original answer well, answered.
    The two holes next to the iSight are the mic and the iSight status light/ambient light sensor

    Would people PLEASE stop moaning about it being mono only?!

    Do you really think it's worth building stereo speakers into something that small? is it really going to make any difference? No.


    And as for 'surround sound' in a laptop, it can't be done. You can try and fake it, by doing all sorts of stupid things like delaying the left hand speaker very slightly from the right, which isn't really proper surround sound.

    To have surround sound, you need speakers all around you, no way around it.

    Does it really matter? I mean, they're hardly gunna be any good and being mono they're gunna be worse than normal
    Only the people who were at Macworld have had a chance to use it and so thats a pretty limited user base. Maybe some early reviews may have more info
