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.

QUOTE Thanks

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.
