The MacBook Air will find a following with on-the-go Travelers and Business people no doubt. The Air sports a wedge design that tapers from approximately 3/4" to less than a 1/4" at the front of the "wedge". The little "heavy weight" notebook weighs in at a mere 3lbs. Other features for the on-the-go Travelers and Business people will find useful are:

iLife '08 (includes iTunes, iPhoto, iMovie, iDVD, iWeb, GarageBand) What's Missing? Well, for one, the MacBook Air only has one USB 2.0 port. I would have liked to saw a few more. Plus it doesn't come with an optical drive...hello! The new MacBook Air's will not start shipping for another 2 weeks. However you can pre-order them now at the Apple Store. Only time will tell whether or not the MacBook Air will be the light weight power house that it has been hyped to be, but with all the features packed into this 3lb giant, it's certainly off to a good start!
