Considering what we know of Apple's general approach to marketing, is this really newsworthy?
But since you ask... The point is that it is an extremely thin laptop. Nobody actually cares if it is really the world's thinnest, and Apple knows this. That's what makes them think they can get away with it.
I do agree that the Air seems pretty pointless, though.
Apple ads did basically the same thing when they started using Intel processors, claiming that the processor can now "do more", and be "set free" now that it's in a Mac.

Well I am getting tired of trying to explain the Mac fans that they live an illusion and that such a thing as Mac does not exist anymore since the CPU is Intel, operating system is Unix, and the office software they all use is MS Office for Mac, I don't know I should be ashame of mysel claming something I am not. The say "well we don't have viruses" of course nobody will trow a stone on a vw Bug, envious people will stone a ferrari or something better.
SO please be humble and accept you lose the battle when you started with OS X.
