Apple unveils two new MacBook Air Netbooks


Apple CEO Steve Jobs, near the end of a meandering presentation Wednesday, unveiled his trademark "one more thing": two refreshed MacBook Air laptops that add some of the ease of use of an iPad.

The largest of these slender, lightweight netbook computers has a 13-inch screen, is .68 of an inch thick at its widest point and weighs less than three pounds. It’ll be priced at $1,299.

A smaller version will have an 11-inch screen and costs $999. Both are available today.

"What would happen if a MacBook and an iPad hooked up?" asked Jobs to laughs from the audience at Apple’s Cupertino, California, headquarters. "This is the result."

Both computers boast unibody construction, full-size keyboards and a webcam for FaceTime video chatting. They also have no hard drives and run on Flash storage instead, meaning they boot up instantly, like the iPad.
