Apple 1.6GHz MacBook Air

Lightweight or Airhead? The world’s thinnest laptop is a little thin on “depth” and “features” too.

The new notebook says big things about the future of small computing.

Time Capsule

Apple’s new wireless storage device fills a need of Mac notebook owners.

Is the air getting thinner?

 Mac Book Air, 3.0 pounds, 0.16-0.76 inches thick, 13.3-inch display, 1.6GHz /1.8GHz Intel Core 2 Duo CPU, 80GB hard drive, Backlit keyboard, Multi-touch trackpad, iSight camera,No optical drive, Must be caressed to be believed Steve Jobs’ opening bow at Mac Expo 2008 was uncharacteristically late by some 10 minutes, but the news he had to share was completely on time if one believes that keeping pace with the forward march of technology (and all its digital lifestyle overtones) is important. From the time-saving Time Capsule to the well-timed iPhone enhancements to the “Will they stand the test of time?” big-ticket items—iTunes movie rentals, Apple TV Take Two, and the impossibly thin MacBook Air—Expo ’08 marked Apple’s first year as a rightfully placed consumer electronics juggernaut, with multiple prongs of attack jutting from its ever-determined center.

Consistently good, but where's the "wow"?

Apple iPod Touch

The iPod touch is primarily a media player. Everything else is gravy.  In our first look at the iPod touch last month (Nov/07, p68), we said that it’s basically a phoneless iPhone. It turns out that the iPod touch is even less than a phoneless iPhone. But if you want a media player first and an Internet device a distant second, the touch offers a satisfying experience.

iPod Classic and iPod Nano

The new iPod nano: It's a movie theater in the palm of your hand. Darn you, Apple. You know our iPod love is fickle, and you take advantage each and every time. We were happy with the 5G iPod (a.k.a. the video iPod), but we admit, we wanted the next-generation iPod with spiffy new features. The 2G iPod nano? It was a nice little music player that also made us happy, but we knew it could do more - and apparently, you did, too. So now here we are, with a new iPod classic and iPod nano to covet. Darn you, Apple.

We've seen the new iMacs and, yes, we want one. Take a look at the way Apple has redesigned its all-in-one computer line. Plus: A humongous software bonus in the form of iLife and iWork '08!
