I watched The Prestige (starring the always-excellent Christian Bale) this past weekend, so I was looking for the sleight of hand used by Steve Jobs as he pulled the MacBook Air out of that manila envelope at the Moscone Center earlier today. Jobs skipped the Pledge and the Turn, and jumped right to the Prestige (while oddly choosing Paul Otellini over Scarlett Johansson to assist him on stage). Still, it was an excellent display of consumer electronics magic. I've assembled a bunch of images of Apple's newest and thinnest laptop. Take a spin through this Macworld 2008 slide show to get a good look at the MacBook Air and find out which features it boasts and those it lacks.
