Mumbai, Feb 12: Less than a month after its global launch, the world's thinnest NoteBook- the ''MacBook Air'' was unveiled in the country by maker Apple Inc here today.
Weighing a mere 1.36 kg with an aluminium encasing, the MacBook Air measures 0.16 inches at its thinnest point and 0.76 inches at its thickest end and sports a full-sized backlit keyboard, a multi-touch trackpad and an 13.3 inch LED widescreen monitor. At its heart, is an Intel 1.6 GHz Core 2 Duo processor with 4MB L2 cache with 80 GB hard Drive and a 2 GB of memory.
''The new NoteBook features a number of innovative applications like wireless connectivity with other new Apple products including 'Remote Disc' that can install files wirelessly and a flip-open USB/headphone/micro DVI compartment'', said Product Marketing Manager Asia-Pacific, Angeline Tan.
''For the environmentally-conscious, the NoteBook has an arsenic and mercury free screen too'', he added.
The MacBook however lacks an internal compact disc drive and customers will have to depend on the MacBook Air SuperDrive compact external drive which will be sold seperately. It can be, however, connected using the integrated USB cable avoiding any clutter.
Battery life is quoted at five hours.
The MacBook Air will hit nation wide Apple franchises and retail for Rs 96,100 with a one-year warranty and the external drive pegged at Rs 5,500 within two weeks along with the ''Time Capsule', the company's latest wireless backup appliance unveiled at the recently held Macworld.
