During Apple's launch of the new MacBook Pro 2008 edition, they surprised many by announcing that the MacBook Air would also get a bit of a refresh with the inclusion of the NVIDIA GeForce 9400M GPU.

 

Not only that, the storage gets bumped up to a 120GB HDD and on the most expensive model, you can get the Air fitted out with a 128GB SSD.

 

Additionally, the microDVI port is out and has been replaced by a mini DisplayPort, as with all the new models that have so far been spoken about today during the event being held at the Apple HQ, which is not yet over.
