she's the new MacBook Air! No wonder all the MacPeople leaving MacWorld looked so enamored today.

Apple introduced their new laptop today touting the environmental successes they were able to achieve with its invention. From the Apple website:

MacBook Air embodies Apple’s continuing environmental progress. It consumes the least amount of power of any Mac and is also designed with the following features to reduce environmental impact:

Highly recyclable aluminum enclosure

Mercury-free LCD display with arsenic-free glass

PVC-free internal cables

Largely recyclable, low-volume packaging

ENERGY STAR.

Meets ENERGY STAR requirements

EPEAT Silver rating.

MacBook Air received a Silver rating from EPEAT


As pointed out by resident JamBase smart cookie, Andy Gadiel, there's no CD drive, so the MacBook Air encourages file sharing through thumb drives and emails. While I'm not sure how that is going to work in the short-term, it will definitely set computer designers along the right path of not encouraging CDs as a means to transfer information (which might just hammer the last nail into the CD coffin that's keeping music executives up late at night)...but that's a post for another day.

Go out on a date with the new MacBook Air here.
