It seems like every month, Apple's got a new innovation to share with us. Engadget reported that at the the "Back to Mac" event on Oct. 20, Apple unveiled two new MacBook Airs, one 11-inch and one 13-inch, which are even thinner than the last incarnation of the computer.

And like nearly every Apple product, it's definitely got features that some college students are sure to find attractive. Obviously, it shares some features with Mac computers -- a built-in camera, microphone, Wi-Fi capabilities and the same operating system (for now -- Apple also announced Lion, the next Mac OS). But is this one better than other the Apple notebooks? Let's take a look at some pros and cons.
