The new MacBook Air, the latest invention from Apple, has been launched claiming to be the first of a new generation of notebooks.
Normal If you are planning on purchasing the new Macbook Air it is recommended you compare laptop insurance to ensure it is covered from theft and damage.

The MacBook Air is available in 11 inch and 13 inch models weighing in at 2.3 pounds making it Apple's lightest and most portable notebook to date.
"MacBook Air is the first of a new generation of notebooks that leaves behind mechanical rotating storage in favour of solid state flash storage," said Steve Jobs, Apple's CEO.
"With its amazing responsiveness and mobility, it will change the way we think about notebooks."

Adaptive charging technology is used to create the long life battery as its unique design results in less waste.
