Inside Apple’s ultra-thin Air

MacWorld 2008 has been pretty much on expected lines. No real surprises this year from Steve Jobs, except for the world's thinnest notebook, measuring an incredible 0.16-0.76 inches. It weighs about 3 pounds (1.36 kg).

Priced from $1,800, the Air bridges the gap between Apple's entry-level and high-end laptops, but analysts voiced concern that it could steal customers away from pricier products.

Air is powered by 1.6GHz or 1.8GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, with 4 MB on-chip shared L2 cache running at full processor speed and uses an 800MHz frontside bus.

Air comes with 2 GB RAM and 80GB hard drive.
