Deekin_Scalesinger (755062) writes "Steve Jobs confirmed what many of us suspected — a new Macbook less than one inch thick has been introduced at Macworld. Early specs indicate 0.16" to 0.76" thickness, magnetic latch, 13.3" widescreen display, 1.8" hard drive — 80 GB hard disk standard, 64 GB SSD as an option, 1.6 GHz Standard, 1.8 GHz Option — Intel Core 2 Duo. Details available at MacRumors, which is posting live commentary of the event."

It seems Apple is more concerned with style over utility and the consequence is every recent MacBook has been plagued with issues. Previous MacBooks have turned yellow, overheated, featured magic expanding batteries and even inflammable charging cables. Now they launch a super thin laptop which looks like it would snap if you looked at it wrong. I sure do pity the suckers who plonk their money down on this machine without knowing what faults lay in store this time around. The hinges, connectors and case on this thing sure look vulnerable.
