The future of notebooks

It seems that notebooks are getting thinner and thinner these days. When Apple introduced the MacBook Air it instantly became a hit. I am a huge fan of it and love the thinness. Then came the iPad, which also revolutionized the industry.

Couple of weeks ago the Steve Jobs, the founder and CEO of Apple, had a presentation and asked the audience “what would happen if an iPad and a MacBook Air hooked up?” The result is the new MacBook Air. This would be very interesting, basically imagine a Laptop that has touchscreen capabilities. There has been rumors of the new MacBook Air with screen sizes of 13.3 inches and 11.6 inches respectively. While the new MacBook will have many upgraded features, such as better battery life, that is not the subject of our article.

So it seems that the future for laptops will be to get thinner, offer longer battery lives and more features and making the touch sensitive screens a standard.
