    But it's still within normal limits, and I bet it's feels much, much smaller/lighter than the previous Air.

    I've been spoiled by the 12-inch MacBook and Windows laptops like the Acer Swift 7, which gets down under 9mm.

    Apple's metalalurgy team has found a new way to make high-quality aluminum without having to mine it. "Every new MacBook Air is made from 100% recycled aluminum" Long, long cheers for that one

    100 percent recycled aluminum, so your old Air may eventually become your new Air.

    Now we've got a video about the new aluminum process and MacBook Air. Laura Metz, senior product manager, is speaking on the video.

    Apple Pay on the Mac, etc

    Was this the last MagSafe Apple product? RIP MagSafe, you've saved many, many laptops from a grim death.
  • dan.ackerman 10/30/2018 2:22:37 PM
    Nothing really "new" in here versus other current MacBooks, but it's basically a stripped down MacBook Pro -- very little "Air" (ugh...I know) between them. Really, I'm mostly surprised they kept the Air name.
  • Shara Tibken 10/30/2018 2:23:07 PM
    "What a huge leap forward for MacBook Air."
  • dan.ackerman 10/30/2018 2:23:18 PM
    If it's $999 -- brilliant! If it's $1,299, hmmm.... I'm betting $1,099, which ain't bad, but not exciting.
  • Shara Tibken 10/30/2018 2:23:23 PM
    8GB memory, 1.6GHz processor. Starts at $1,199
  • dan.ackerman 10/30/2018 2:23:27 PM
    Ah, $1,199 -- crowd goes silent.
  • Shara Tibken 10/30/2018 2:23:29 PM
    The old MacBook Air was $999
  • dan.ackerman 10/30/2018 2:23:35 PM
    That's the end of $999 MacBooks.

    "You can order it starting today, and it will be available Nov. 7

    The iPhone XR mixed high and low-end parts for a less-expensive product. The MacBook Air does similar, but at a 20% higher price.
  • Shara Tibken 10/30/2018 2:24:18 PM
    "I can't wait for you to get your hands on this. I really think you're going to love it."
  • Shara Tibken 10/30/2018 2:24:36 PM
    "There's another small but mighty Mac our users have been waiting for. And here it comes."
  • Shara Tibken 10/30/2018 2:24:43 PM
    Another video. Mac Mini probably?
  • dan.ackerman 10/30/2018 2:24:44 PM
    Does the 12-inch MacBook survive? Especially at $1,299?
  • Sarah Tew 10/30/2018 2:24:52 PM
  • dan.ackerman 10/30/2018 2:24:52 PM
    Hey, Mac Mini -- cool.
  • Sarah Tew 10/30/2018 2:24:56 PM
  • dan.ackerman 10/30/2018 2:24:59 PM
    People love this little thing.

    This looks like a spaceship. ha
  • dan.ackerman 10/30/2018 2:25:12 PM
    But really, really needs an update.
