Apple launches new MacBook Air, Mac Mini, Thunderbolt display


Apple unveiled a new 27-inch Thunderbolt display in addition to a refreshed Macbook Air and Mac Mini (apple )
Apple was expected to launch OS X Lion today, but snuck in a few extra releases just for good measure.

The telltale sticky note was up at the Apple Store this morning, indicating that new stuff was on its way.

As confirmed in yesterday’s earnings call, the company’s latest operating system hit the Mac App Store today for $29.99.

But Apple also finally took the wrapping off its refresh of the MacBook Air as well as a revamped Mac Mini and a Thunderbolt display.

The ultra-slim laptop now sports a Thunderbolt port, all Flash storage, a backlit keyboard and Intel i5 or i7 processors. The 11-inch model starts at $999 and the 13-inch model is priced from $1,299.

Meanwhile, Apple’s compact desktop also got the Thunderbolt and processor upgrades and ships with OS X Lion.

The company’s new Thunderbolt display is a 27-inch, 2560-by-1440 LED monitor with a FaceTime camera and three USB ports, an ethernet port and, of course, a Thunderbolt port.
