Besides being an avid blogger, I am also an avid nerd. Therefore, when Steve Jobs speaks…I LISTEN! And Steve Jobs did speak…this morning in California.
Jobs announced that Apple will soon be releasing the new MacBook Air, which is billed as the world’s thinnest computer and is capable of being stored inside an interoffice mailing envelope. I’ll spare you all the technical jargon, but basically this computer will not only be super duper savvy, but also super, duper green.
In the past, Apple has had a few run-ins with the environmental group Greenpeace over their less than earth-friendly practices, but this computer just might give Greenpeace a run for it’s money. The MacBook Air will have a fully recyclable aluminum case, and is “the first” to have a mercury-free display. The glass on the screen is arsenic-free and all the circuit boards are BFR-free and PVC-free. Also, the retail packaging uses 56 percent less material than the regular MacBook packaging.
What I’m saying here is: MR. JOBS, I’M IN LOVE!!! The MacBook Air will start shipping at the beginning of February. Note to readers: this would be a very nice Valentines Day gift for your favorite bloggers (ie. Ecorazzi team).
