    Although the look hasn't been changed like the MacBook and MacBook Pro, there have been some major changes to the MacBook Air. First, the processor is faster and you can get more memory. There is more storage space. You can now get a 120GB Hard Drive or a 128GB Solid State Disk. It used to be an 80GB HD and a 64GB SSD. Much more space for much more stuff you can add on. I'm not sure but they PROBABLY DIDN'T add the glass trackpad on too, and the trackpad is PROBABLY NOT the button. They have also removed the Micro-DVI port and added a Mini DisplayPort instead like on all of their other notebook models. If I left anything out or made a mistake please let me know in this thread.

    All the new multi touch trackpads are glass. That is from the apple website too.

    Can you link me to the source where it says the Air one is glass? That just says "spacious multi-touch trackpad".

    The MacBook Air still has the seperate button, not sure if it's glass.
    It still has the multi-touch gestures
    Graphics are the same as the MacBook
    It used to be 64GB SSD, not 60GB
    Not much change, and I hoped for a makeover

    Edit: It's not glass

    From the MacBook Air feature page
    The feature page for the glass trackpad on the MacBook
    MacBook Pro

    If the MacBook Air had the glass trackpad, it would have been notified on the website

    I am leaning toward that old macbook or the air, but that glass track pad looks really good.

    Or you could wait till the MacWorld 2009, and the MacBook Air might have the glass trackpad? That's what I'm hoping for
