I missed the light sensor and auto-brightness on my 2010 MBA and wanted to know if it was re-added in the new version. Anyone know?

Found my own answer and it's YES!!!

From Apple's website:
"A built-in sensor detects changes in the ambient lighting and adjusts the keyboard and display brightness automatically, giving you the perfect illumination in any environment."

The light sensor and backlit keyboard are two minor upgrades that play a key role in my daily computer usage. I'm really glad these features are back!

Wow, I didn't know it wasn't there in the 2010 MBA. That's crazy what they took out.
