Michelle So from Singapore emailed us this question yesterday:
"Dear TechPinas, is Macbook Air really the thinnest notebook ever ?"
Hi Michelle! Thanks for the inquiry!
Here's our answer:
Macbook Air is NOT the 'Thinnest Laptop Ever'. That title belongs to the Mitsubishi Pedion released more than 10 years ago.
Created in partnership with HP, Mitsubishi Pedion measures only 0.72" at its thickest point - just 0.04" thinner than the Macbook Air. All of its components are custom-made.
Back in 1997, Pedion demanded a hefty price of around $6000 or P282,000 (with today's exchange rate)
