Macworld San Francisco 2008-The MacBook Air Intro (Pt. 1)


Here we see Steve Jobs introducing the MacBook Air ultra-portable laptop.



Dakota Barnes
Isn’t it funny how Steve can make a near 11 year old product sound just as desirable today as it was back when it was originally announced?

Steve Jobs: we have a new product and let me explain all about it Tim Cook: we have a new product and Craig/Phil will tell you all about it

Steve always praised Sony products compared to other competitors.

Apple is now selling adaptors.

2019: Apple is selling that envelope case for $999...

0:01 when your friend farts...
Bernhard Waldbrunner
The envelope is a prime example of Steve's superb showmanship. I'm sure lots of people creamed their pants when he took the MacBook Air out of the envelope. lol
GlowBox
Apple then: no compromises Apple now: introducing the core m. for only 1200 dollars
Luke P
That laptop was revolutionary

When Apple was really cool

10 years later and this thing is still thinner than most midrange windows laptops and has a better trackpad

Steve looked really happy when he took MacBook Air from the envelope. I love the scene.
Vikas Mehta
This video still gives me goose bumps, the way Steve Jobs introduces "There is something in the Air". Love my 2013 Macbook Air. Awesome Engineering.
David Ben James
I Love How Apple Roasted Other Companies on Stage. XD

One thing Apple has been really good at: take failed or existing concepts and make them work or better. 
MultiDevan
Apple died with steve jobs.
Burhan Ikram
Back when the ceo actually walked you through the product and also had the integrity and humility to talk honestly I could never imagine Apple today saying in a presentation it’s pricy but worth it the fact that he recognised and brought up the fact that it’s pricy is commendable. Can’t remember the last time Tim Cook talked us through a product on stage with such passion
Abraham Cantillo
Steve Jobs: *inhales Audience: 😮👏👏👏
raul Rolon
The good old days. I miss this man. His presentation skills really sold me on his products every time. Tim Cook tries but can't really replicate Steve's charisma.
Hilarious
Apple then: Selling MacBooks that can fit inside an envelope Apple now: Selling envelopes for 1000 dollars
COS
What a showman! He's awesome!
Chandru
Days when Apple compared their product with other company products to show how better theirs are. Nowadays, they compare their own old products to showcase how their new version are better than them.

If Steve had another 10 or 15 years left to live your talking about time travel becoming a reality haha the man was truly a genius.
Hriday Mehta
If Steve was alive today the macbook air would've been made of air.
Hamza Yamin
"There is something in the air." Beautiful.
Zafira LPSTV
I will buy even a bag of potato if Steve will present this ! :D
Harsh Jain
I'm buying a macbook air in 2018 now, at the 10th anniversary, coz I can afford it now. I am amazed how ahead apple under Steve Jobs was, 10 years earlier!
Shiniychi
8:58 "We've got a great relationship with Intel" MacBook Pro 2018: Overheating issues with Intel processors MacBook Air 2018: Not dropping the name "Intel" even once during the keynote and just calling it "new processor from 8th generation" (Probably) in 2020: "We got rid of all Intel processors and replaced them with our ARM processors."
Car crashcentral
3:59 he looks so happy, he was really impressed with what they were able to make.
Eliel Rios
Steve Jobs: *Breathes* Crowd: Woo!
FaXe_Legend
Steve Jobs: hey lets make this $300 New apple owner: hey lets make them $3.5k and also make them pay $200 for an adapter.

Apple just made a huge progress from selling devices at $999 to selling a stand at $999.

I noticed Steve was Pissed when the presentation of the GIF's for the new Touchpad gestures was laggy
Joe
We would be living in the future if he was still alive. 😭😭
Raghav Sharma
He was the best. A real genius. His thinking was far ahead from his time. #Legend

10 years later and I own my very first Apple Product, a Macbook Air
Amanda Capstick
The MacBook Air is so light that when he was holding it both in and out the envelope and when he was taking it out I was scared that he’d drop it
Almost God
I just bought one in Amazon today July 2019 🤣🤣🤣
kiwiKaiser
Now we have 2018 and there are still Notebooks that are worse than this. It’s kind of sad.
Charles Shi

KukosEQ
Damn. Those are superb presentation skills. After So many years no one come close. If I had those skills I will sell a fridge to an eskimo 😁
lfyfain
it's crazy to think how the original MacBook Air is still considered thin for the market today. and the new MacBook Pro is thinner now lol
Wei Dong

Drinipro

When there was innovation in this company Now it makes the fastest chipset but sadly lack of innovation Im still on my 6s plus because i dont want to skip on headphone jack if ill upgrade to xs max But thats just my opinion
gameplayer502
Back when Apple used to be innovative Smh when Steve jobs died so did Apple
AEVO Project
Nowdays, we got the stand for a display at the same price with this macbook air
Jason Wong
If Steve Jobs released this today, it would sell better than the current macbook air
nestle rosales

Mogen Cheng
As a MacBook Pro owner I want to run out and buy a MacBook Air right now. He really knows how to play with emotions

Bassel Khaled
Whenever I watched a video of Steve Jobs l feel very inspired. He was such an amazing person .

Marian İvanov
When came Tim hook some MacBook Pro models removed the backlight so interesting why

Great to see Steve praising collaborative efforts and acknowledging/highlighting the feats that apple has overcome. Something dearly missing from today’s presentations.
