    New Macbook Air (Late 2008) - help decipher specs
    Hi. I won a contest at a conference. They just sent me a new MacBook Air (late 2008 model). I am going to give this as a gift to a family member. But I do not know the specs. I do not want to open it up yet.

    The box has this:

    MB Air/1.6ghz/128

    I get the 1.6ghz, of course. But the 128 is throwing me off. Only thing I can think of is it is the 128GB solid state drive.

    Well if you look on Apple's website it says that the 1.6 ghz model of the Macbook Air has a 120 GB hard drive. So not sure what that 128 might mean.

    Yes it is the 128 ssd drive but when you turn it on you will find is only 113 gigs. this is a long story but it is correct. Nice prize, congrats. I had to pay $2600 for mine but I love it.
