As expected, Apple just took the wraps off new MacBook Airs.

They are available online, starting today. Our local store didn’t have them in stock. Two weeks to go, said a rep.

Apple is offering two sizes: 11.6-inches and 13.3-inches. Prices vary from $999 for the cheapest to $1,599 for the most expensive.

None of the laptops have 3G built into them.
