    Do people realize it?

    Assuming the 12” Macbook is restrained in terms of screen real estate and I/O, and as such it’s some sort of compromise in the name of extreme lightness, that would make this new Air what the title reads.

    Thoughts? Isn’t that a perfect evolution for the Air moniker?

    What makes you think it has no fan? It appears to have one in the video.

    Ok my bad I thought I saw a fanless heatsink in the video.
    Plus the CPU part sounded like a 5-7W deal..

    Just to be sure, can you point me at the time mark where the fan can bee seen?

    He's thinking about the Mac Mini, not the Macbook Air.

    Ya, am totally confused. Why are we comparing to the Cube in an Air forum.

    Ok people now showed me the fan.
    It’s top left at 18:12 in the keynote.

    I mentioned the Cube just because it’s fanless.
