When it comes to Apple products, how thin is too thin?

<article>
   <section class="page">

One of the characters in Neal Stephenson’s novel Snow Crash uses knives with edges a single atom thick, so sharp they can cut through anything. I think about those knives every time Apple announced a newer, thinner MacBook or iPad or iPhone.</p><p>
Each new generation of Apple product strives to be thinner and lighter than the product that it’s replacing. It isn’t always possible, but it’s clearly a goal that drives Apple’s product design decisions.</p><p>
And look where it’s taken us. Introduced in 1991, the PowerBook 170 weighed 6.8 pounds and was 2.25 inches thick. Ten years later the Titanium PowerBook G4 was a staggering “one inch thin” and weighed 5.3 pounds. Nine years later the MacBook Air was .68 inches at its thickest point and weighed 2.4 pounds. And the new MacBook is .52 inches at its thickest point and weighs 2.03 pounds.</p><p class="jumpTag"><a href="/article/2900950/when-it-comes-to-apple-products-how-thin-is-too-thin.html#jump">To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here[/url]</p></section></article>
