The reduction in materials used in the case and internals. Increase in orders, possible lower per unit shipping costs, other "inexpensive" reductions add up.

The original 2008 MacBook Air started at $1800 with Core2Duo without SSD in the base model and certainly without Thunderbolt. It had an 80GB HD 4200rpm PATA drive.

Now the base 13" model at $1300 is Dual Core i5, 128GB SSD and Thunderbolt.
For $1700 add Dual Core i7 and 256GB SSD, still less than the original model.

You'd think even holding the price would be a challenge given SSD and Thunderbolt implementation.
