Apple is positioning the MacBook Air a bit closer to the iPad than to their line of Laptops. Instant-on, no hard-drive, no CD drive, limited storage and thinness are some of the similarities between the Air and the iPad. Another one is that Apple is not shipping the MacBook Air with Flash according to Engadget. The iOS on the iPad has no Flash support and the MacBook Air running still OS X is out of the box not able to play Flash. You have to download and install the Adobe Flash plug-in yourself.

I can see Apple product managers sit around a table and come up with this easy-to-do "feature" to further establish Apple's anti-Flash position.

As reported yesterday the new MacBook Air starts at $999. More Apple News.
