Apple's officially launched the new Macbook Air in its 11 and 13 inch versions. The computer was unveiled at last month's Back To The Mac event. The 11-inch and 13-inch MacBook Air will be available through the Apple Authorized Resellers in India. The 1.4-GHz 11-inch MacBook Air with 2GB of memory and 64GB of flash storage starts at a price of Rs. 60,900 with a 128GB model for Rs. 72,900. The 1.86 GHz 13-inch MacBook Air with 2GB of memory and 128GB of flash storage starts at a price of Rs. 79,900 with a 256GB model will sell for Rs. 98,900. Configure-to-order options and accessories include faster processors, 4GB of memory, MacBook Air SuperDrive and a USB Ethernet Adapter.
This is the Macbook Air which is touted to be an expensive netbook. It's also the laptop you don't have to take out of your bag when being security screened at the airport. While it's entirely logical why Apple would launch the Macbook Air in India way sooner than other cool objects, say the iPad or iPhone 4, it's definitely not cool.
