Apple Ships 1.1 Million MacBook Airs in 2010?

A new analyst report estimates that Apple shipped 1.1 million of its new MacBook Air notebook during 2010, according to AppleInsider.

Concord Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo tells AppleInsider that his most recent checks in Asia indicate Apple shipped a total of 1.1 million of its 11- and 13-inch MacBook Airs during the three-month period ending December, making the new breed of ultra-thin portables one of the company's most successful Mac product launches ever.

Those figures are about 63% higher, or 400,000 units more, than the 700,000 units that Kuo had initially estimated. The figures also support an earlier claim by AppleInsider that the new MacBook Airs quickly grew to comprise more than a third Mac maker's notebook business in the fourth quarter, selling at a 1 to 2 ratio to the company's flagship MacBook Pro offerings.

The new MacBook Air has been resounded success with customers due to its compact size, amazing battery life, and "instant on" features. The notebook uses solid state memory instead of a traditional hard drive. Many thought Apple would bring this feature to its new MacBook Pro lineup; however, this didn't come to pass.
