    Like a wafer, wafer-thin Air. A paper Air.

    Schiller looks very happy
  • dan.ackerman 3/9/2015 5:32:52 PM
    The curent Air's have been, while still good -- getting a bit out of date, design-wise
  • Shara Tibken 3/9/2015 5:33:04 PM
    Schiller: It is the most extreme and efficient MacBook we have ever created. It took reinventing every technology in it to deliver something this amazing

    Dan, I am freaking out.
  • Shara Tibken 3/9/2015 5:34:15 PM
    Schiller: When you open it up, struck by most dominant feature. Full size keyboard. Goes all the way to the edge. Defines the size of the notebook
  • dan.ackerman 3/9/2015 5:34:16 PM
    The keyboard goes edge to edge, as seen in the smallest Windows laptops

    Schiller: Team invented butterfly mechanism for keys. Built with single assembly, all adds up to a key much more precise and accurate. 4X more stable than scissor mechanism yet 40% thinner
  • dan.ackerman 3/9/2015 5:35:16 PM
    Apple keyboards are often called the best out there, alongside Lenovo.
