Apple launches new MacBook Air models

13.3- and 11.6-inch
Steve Jobs’ fruit-themed brainchild has announced  two new models to be added to its Apple tree. We’re talking about MacBook Air line, which just got two new models - a 13.3- and a 11.6-inch one.

The 13.3-inch MacBook Air comes with a choice of 1.86GHz or 2.13GHz Intel’s Core 2 Duo processors, resolution of 1440x900 ran by Geforce 320M graphics. It comes with SSD storage and a choice of 2GB or 4GB of DDR3 RAM.

It weighs 2.9 pounds, which is slightly lighter than the old Air, and measures 0.11 inches at the thinnest point, which is again slightly thinner than its predecessor. Thickest point is 0.68 inches, again slightly thinner. Apple claims that the battery should be good for 7 hours of wireless web and 30 days of standby. Pricing starts at $1,299 for the 128GB SSD model and $1,599 for the 256GB SSD model, which is the point where we stop using the word slightly. You can find out more here.

The 11.6-inch MacBook Air comes with a choice of 1.4GHz or 1.6GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processors and resolution of 1366 x 768 ran by Nvidia Geforce 320M graphics. It also features SSD storage and a choice of 2GB or 4GB of DDR3 RAM. Battery life is shorter than on the 13 incher – 5 hours. This model starts at $999 for the 64GB SSD version and $1,199 for the 128GB SSD model. You can find out more here.

Of course, if you're from Europe, you should expect to pay about the same number, only in euros, and German Apple store confirms this. Well, that's except for the 128GB 11.6 inch version, which is priced at €1,149. Since the US price stands at $1,199, this means that Steve generously opted to still rip off Europeans but lower the price by some €50. Why thanks Steve, you're a doll.
