Deprecated thought: Either it's really old, or not used anymore. You can probably ignore it.

Apple just announced their new laptop or notebook. They are claiming the worlds thinnest notebook with the thinnest area at a mere 0.16 inches thick. This looks like an awesome little machine which includes a 13.3 inch wide screen. A little disappointing was the price though, at $1799 it fits in between the MacBook and the MacBook Pro.
