"To coincide with the release of Mac OS X Lion, Apple has also released a new generation of MacBook Airs, Mac Minis, and LED displays (now dubbed Thunderbolt displays). The most interesting to us, of course, is the MacBook Air, particularly the 11-inch version which is a real - if more expensive - rival to the iPad."
The big news of the day, new MacBook Airs. And with some nice additions, namely:
- Intel Cor i5 or i7
- Thunderbolt I/O Port
- Backlit Keyboard (thank you Apple).
OS X Lion was also released today [affiliate link] and will work very nicely with these new versions of the MacBook Air, especially with the new gesture controls via trackpad. But I'm still impressed by my 11-inch MacBook Air, so I don't think I will be upgrading just yet (hardware wise, I am going to upgrade to Lion). How about you, are you going to pony up and get one of the new versions?
