With the case closed, you can see the MacBook Air's tapered design. Apple says the thickest part of the system measures just 0.68 inch.

The thin design means there's no Ethernet jack or FireWire ports on the new MacBook Air.

Apple was able to make the new MacBook Airs so thin because it left off an optical drive and replaced the standard mechanical hard drive with faster, smaller solid-state flash memory.

Both MacBook Air models come with a 1.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo CPU in their default configuration. The main feature difference, aside from the display sizes: the 13-inch model gets a 128GB solid-storage drive to the 11-inch model's 64GB SSD. Apple also says the larger model has longer battery life.

Apple says the 13-inch MacBook Air will provide up to 7 hours of Web browsing over a Wi-Fi connection, and up to 30 days of standby time.

The 11.6-inch screen on the $999 MacBook Air is just less than 2 inches larger than the 9.7-inch display of a $499 iPad.

As with its other laptops, Apple built the MacBook Air with a single-piece aluminum chassis to strengthen the thin design that might be too fragile otherwise.
