Steve Jobs introduced the MacBook Air during his keynote at the 2008 Macworld conference held on January 15, 2008. The first generation MacBook Air was a 13.3"-only model, initially promoted as the world's thinnest notebook at 1.9 cm, compared with 1.98 cm for a previous record model, 2005's Toshiba Portege R200. It featured a custom Intel Merom CPU and Intel GMA graphics that was 40% of the size of the standard chip package. It also features an anti-glare LED backlit display and a full-size keyboard, as well as a large trackpad that responds to multi-touch gestures such as pinching, swiping, and rotating. Since the release of Snow Leopard, the trackpad has supported handwriting recognition of Chinese characters.
The MacBook Air was the first subcompact laptop offered by Apple since the full-featured 12" PowerBook G4 was discontinued in 2006. It was also Apple's first computer with an optional solid-state drive. It was Apple's first notebook since the PowerBook 2400c without a built-in removable media drive.
