New poll posted on the MacBook Air
Authored by: ivanov on Jan 15, '08 08:09:25PM

The dimensions quoted are odd: perhaps something was lost in conversion from Imperial to Metric, but I see the following on Apple's website:

MacBook: 2.75 x 32.5 x 22.7cm
MacBook Air: 1.94 x 32.4 x 22.7cm

This makes the MAcBook Air smaller, not slightly larger (and the thinness is based on the thickest part, not the average or the thin section)

That is very weird -- because the Apple site lists the MB as 12.78x8.92 (Tech Specs), and the MBA as 12.80x8.94 (Tech Specs). On those same pages, though, the metric units are listed as being identical (both 32.5x22.7).

Strange, but the essence is unchanged: the MBA is not a physically small Mac, it's just amazingly light and amazingly thin.

These are half-millimeter differences due to rounding. Too small to quibble about. Your points about opening on an airplane vs. packing are what count.
