Apple Inc. Chief Executive Steve Jobs took the wraps off a super-slim new laptop which weighs 3 pounds (1.3kg) at the Macworld trade show on Tuesday, unveiling a personal computer less than an inch thick that turns on the moment it's opened.
At its beefiest, the new computer is 0.76 inches thick; at its thinnest, it's 0.16 inches, he said. It comes standard with an 80-gigabyte hard drive, with the option of a 64GB flash-based solid state drive as an upgrade.
The new laptop, which has a 13.3-inch screen and full-sized laptop keyboard, will cost $1,799 when it goes on sale in two weeks
