Engadget did a great live coverage – as usual – of the anticipated Back to the Mac press event by Apple. You can find all the information related to the presented products at Engadget.

Apple presented iLife’11, iPhoto’11, iMovie’11, a really cool application named Garage Band – that allows you to practice with your instrument, teaches you, corrects you and adds extra instruments – and the latest version of Maz OS X named Lion. Steve Jobs was particularly proud of this one.

But the most anticipated and yet most interesting feature in the press conference was the new version – actually, two new versions – of the MacBook Air. A super slim, super small and super light laptop that looks great.

This device is just 0.68 inches tall at its tallest side and weights only 2.9 pounds. So far, very impressive. It has a 13.3 inch LED backlit display with a ressolution of 1440 x 900 pixels. It is powered by a Core 2 Duo processor – whether we will be able to fry eggs on it like with the previous Air model is still a mistery… -. It has no optical drive and, the most impressive and unexpected detail, it has no hard drive; Apple has gone to flash storage. There will be a smaller 11.6 model as well.

All in all, very interesting. More details at Apple.
