The selection of laptops on the market in 2008 was entirely different from the iconic MacBook Air that Steve Jobs unveiled at Apple’s keynote. Apple had two portable Macs in its lineup before the first MacBook Air was unveiled: the MacBook and MacBook Pro.

The co-founder, with Jobs providing the presentation, stated, “It is the world’s thinnest notebook.” Soon after, he began evaluating rival products according to their performance and thickness, beginning with the Sony TZ series. Following a description of the physical variations, Jobs was pictured removing the 13.3-inch MacBook Air from its packaging. This model has a full-sized keyboard and a white backlight.

One point that the press gasped to hear was that the competing Sony TZ notebook’s thinnest part was still thicker than the MacBook Air’s thickest part, and that undoubtedly made a statement in the large room.

According to rumors, Apple will release a 15-inch MacBook Air later this year. We’ll keep you updated as more information becomes available. The videos provided above allow you to watch Steve Jobs announce the “thinnest notebook ever” as well as the first MacBook Air commercial.
