    Apple's follow-up to the early 2008 debut of the ultraportable features faster RAM, more storage (a 120GB Serial ATA drive compared to the 80GB Parallel ATA drive in the original), and improved graphics. Instead of an integrated Intel GMA X3100, the Air now features an Nvidia GeForce 9400 graphics processor (though it still shares memory with the system RAM).

    MSRP: $1,799
