Maybe i missed it, but are there speakers or even a speaker in the macbook air?
Believe it or not there's only a MONO speaker in the MacBook Air as it says on the Apple website.
Guess there wasn't space for two ...
Maybe it'll be like the iPod "speaker". You'll hear beeps, and nothing else.
00 wow, thx for clarifying (didnt see it on the site)
HAHAH yea i guess they had to compromise sound for space
Sound comes out of the right side of the keyboard or something.
How can a Mac be complete with out at least one mono speaker for the startup chime?
yep, right side under the keyboard.
And the hits keep on coming. Mono sound, awesome! We're truly well into the 20th century.
I love the Air and I will be getting one but the 1 speaker thing is confusing. I mean how big can the speakers be to not have it stereo?
I don't mind a mono beep speaker, but there is stereo out for the headphones isn't there?
It has a headphones socket which I assume is stereo. If not you could try using bluetooth headphones?
From one of the early previews it states the "1/8" Audio Output" is mono as well. That could just be a guess. I do hope so.
That HAS to be wrong. This thing is geared toward watching movies on planes, as well as music, so it is doubtable it is mono.
As to the speaker...perhaps the mono speaker gave better sound quality than stereo within the space requirements of the machine. (one large mono speakers vs. two tiny stereo speakers)
someone post were apple said that please
The stereo separation in the headphone jack is fine.

what does omnidirectional microphone mean?
Just means it can pick up sounds from multiple places. You don't have to be talking directly into it.
It means a microphone that picks up sounds equally from all directions (except the back, of course).
Think of the pick-up pattern of an omnidirectional mic as a round sphere.
Haha, close. But not exactly true.
its not bad at all
I love the little baby mono speaker for the Air. I always get a sense of nostalgia from my kindergarden days of playing with the first generation imacs when I hear the little startup chime. :-D (And it sounds very classy and original being on a lil mono speaker.)
