Apple Adds Flash Storage To New Mac Airs

10/21/2010 11:49:56 AM Eastern
Cupertino, Calif. - Apple took a break today from introducing new iPhones and iPods and rolled out two new Macbook Air laptops.

The Macbook Air models use flash-based storage, instead of hard drives, along with internal optical drives.

The models come in 11- and 13-inch screen sizes, with each being a shade over 0.5-inch thick.

The 11-inch model weighs 2.3 pounds, with the larger coming in at 2.9 pounds. Both come with Nvidia GeForce 320M graphics.

The smaller-screen-size model, equipped with an Intel Core 2 Duo  1.4GHz processor with 2GB of memory and 64GB of flash storage, has a $999 starting price. Doubling the flash storage pushes the price to $1,199.

The 13-inch version has an Intel Core 2 Duo 1.86GHz processor with 128GB of flash storage and a $1,299 starting price. This goes up to $1,599 when the storage capacity is doubled.

All models are available today from the Apple Store.
