iFixit Opens Up 11.6-inch MacBook Air

iFixit opened up the 11.6-inch MacBook Air. Apple has done a superb job of miniaturization with the 11.6: it is amazing how little there is. The microphone was moved from the display assembly down to the body, next to the headphone jack. I wonder why…

The 11.6-inch MacBook Air is the first MacBook to sport a 16:9 aspect ratio with a 1366×768 pixel format. All others are 16:10: 13.3-inch MacBook Air (1440×900), 13.3-inch MacBook & Pro (1280×800), 15.4-inch MacBook Pro (1440×900, optional 1680×1050), and 17-inch MacBook Pro (1920×1200). I hope 16:9 isn’t a sign of things to come. I like the extra vertical pixels.
