MVC Examples use of var

Maybe I live in a bubble, or am just too new, but I was wondering if anyone else has noticed the heavy use of 'var' to declare variables instead of a specific type in many of the MVC examples by Microsoft? Is there a purpose for this, or is it the "in" thing to do now, or just personal style?
