Introducing the MacBook Air?

After the banners went up on Friday, we posted the whispers we'd heard about the upcoming thin Laptop, and that it would be called "MacBook Air".

9to5mac posts some notes about the history of this name, including a Google cache record of a computer named "MacBookAir" documented in Adium's usage logs.

This log entry was made on or before January 9th (based on the cache), well before the Moscone banners were posted.
