Aside from the decrease in thickness, the most notable hardware improvement that can be seen on the New 13-inch Macbook Air (vs. the old Air) is its aluminum unibody enclosure. This type of casing is similar to that of the most recent Macbook Pro notebooks.
Specs-wise, the new Macbook Air comes with a 13" 1440 x 900 LED Backlit display, a Core 2 Duo CPU, NVIDIA GeForce 320m graphics chip, multitouch trackpad and FaceTime camera. Battery life is 7 hours and 30 days standby.
But here's what every Apple fan has been waiting for --
The new 13-inch Macbook Air actually has a smaller sibling!
Check out the new 11-inch Macbook Air;
11-inch Macbook Air is incredibly thin at only 0.11-inches at its thinnest point and 0.68-inches at its thickest (Actually, this also the depth of the 13-inch model). It's also unbelievably light, weighing only 2.3 pounds.
As for technical specifications, it's largely similar to its big brother. This bad boy dons an 11.6-inch 1366 x 768 pixels LED backlit display, Core 2 Duo processor, similar NVIDIA graphics card, FaceTime camera and multitouch trackpad. It should give around 5 hours of battery life, and 30 days standby.
