That looks so incredibly thing
People behind us are saying "oh my god"
Like a wafer, wafer-thin Air. A paper Air.
Very slim looking, shallow keyboard, thinner bezel.
Cook walks on stage holding this
Cook: This is unbelievable. Can you even see it. I can't even feel it.
Is it just called "MacBook?"

Phil Schiller, head of marketing, is taking the stage to talk about this
Schiller looks very happy
The curent Air's have been, while still good -- getting a bit out of date, design-wise

Yes, called new "MacBook" weighs 2lbs and 13.1mm thick.
Schiller: This is the lightest Mac we have ever made. Even at thickest point, just 13.1mm thin. Thinnest ever. 24% thinner than 11-inch MacBook Air, the previous thinnest device
Dude sitting behind me is freaking out.
Schiller: As you look around at every angle. All metal enclosure
The keyboard goes edge to edge, as seen in the smallest Windows laptops

Schiller: Team studied how current keyboard works.
I am a keyboard fetishist.
Schiller: Scissor mechanism is what current are based on
Schiller: Team invented butterfly mechanism for keys. Built with single assembly, all adds up to a key much more precise and accurate. 4X more stable than scissor mechanism yet 40% thinner
