The New Macbook Air

Apple has just launched new ultra-thin Macbook Air laptops at the Back To Mac event in California. Two new Announced were a 11.6-inch Macbook Air and a 13.3-inch Macbook Air. I do enjoy when Steve Jobs talks crap about other company’s products, he said that netbooks were cheap weak powered PCs, with the launch of the iPads they took a decent hit in netbook sales and I think with the new Macbook Air it’s a nail in the coffin for Netbooks.

The new Macbook Air notebooks have been redesigned and all feature SSD drives ranging from 64GB to 256 GB which are very quiet and long lasting, they weigh almost nothing and are less an then inch thick. Both laptops maxed out with the best hardware aren’t too pricey in comparison to the other apple products, $1507 for the 11 inch and $1907 for the 13 inch.

Gundam RX-78 in Shizouka – Time Lapse

This is the coolest thing that Japan has ever done, they still have the full scale 1/1 Gundam in Japan and now they have moved it to Shizouka. Shizouka is the manufacturing headquarters of Bandai models that make the Gundam models for distrubution all over the wold. Its supposed to open in July and stay until Jan 2011, I love that they keep moving it from city to city since last year and notice how many people want to see it. Some time it isn’t just about the numbers, sometimes its about the passion for it, and the Japanese have a passion for big robots and especially the history of Gundam, I still hope they have it around long enough for me to be able to visit Japan and see it.
