What would happen if a MacBook and iPad hooked up? Apple’s answer is the new MacBook Air. “It’s one of the most amazing things we’ve ever created,” Apple CEO Steve Jobs declared Wednesday at a company event held at its headquarters. “We think it is the future of notebooks.” What does the future look like? It comes in two models — one with an 11.6-inch display and the other with a 13.3-inch screen. It doesn’t have an optical drive or a traditional hard-disk drive, eschewing spinning platters for solid state storage.
