Apple is selling a range of accessories for the new, ultra-thin MacBook Air notebook, which it announced at the Apple MacWorld Conference in San Francisco on 15 January. MacBook Air is less than an inch thick and turns on the moment it’s opened.

Unfortunately the notebook’s stunning design seems to have been achieved at the expense of features, and Apple is making up for this with accessories designed to match the Air’s slim design.

Apple is currently taking orders for an external optical drive and an Ethernet adapter, which plug into the laptop’s lone USB port.

The MacBook Air SuperDrive can play and burn CDs and DVDs, and measures just 5.47 by 5.47 by 0.67 inches. It weighs in at 320 grams and is priced at $99 on Apple’s Web site.

Apple’s USB Ethernet adapter is designed to supplement Air’s integral wireless networking. The lightweight Ethernet dongle is designed to plug into Air’s USB port. It is priced at $29 and will ship in mid to late February.

Apple’s Micro-DVI to Video Adapter is available on Apple’s site for $19. The adapter connects to a laptop’s DVI port and includes S-Video and composite connectors for connecting external multimedia devices.

MacBook Air, which is described as the world’s thinnest notebook, features a 13.3-inch widescreen LED display, full-size keyboard and large multi-touch trackpad.
