The Apple's first MacBook Air

The first real “thin laptop”, the Macbook Air.
Steve Jobs stunned the world when he pulled this marvel from an office envelope at the Apple event in 2008.
Despite the motherboard being as long as a regular wooden pencil, the machine still managed to make use of Intel’s Core 2 Duo processor and graphics.
Nevermind the fact that it still contained a 13.3 inch display, full size keyboard, 80 GB of storage and 2GB of RAM. It started at $1799, which is about $2145 today.
It broke the Guinness World Record for thinnest laptop, with a minimum thickness measured at 0.76 inches (has since been surpassed).
The unibody aluminum design set a precedent for all other Apple products that are made today and ushered in a new sector of the electronics market tailored towards travelers who wanted something portable.
Hopefully, Apple will pull something like this off in the near future with their products. Haven’t been too exciting the past few years in my opinion.
