Aluminum air

Thinnovation they say on the Apple page…. Offset hinge….

The new Mac Air is without a doubt a cool machine. Superb design. Eye-catching. I didn’t even notice the built-in iSight camera, but then we weren’t at the store and in its august presence very long…. And I certainly didn’t dig beneath the surface to find the 37-watt-hour lithium-polymer battery*….

I see the Mac Air as a rather overgrown PDA, good for the high-end business-types. I suspect I’d need to lug around a separate hard drive for all my photos and miscellany, though.

And what the heck is a lithium-polymer battery anyway? Sounds like a gizmo from Star Trek!

    so, do you have one? I’m not initially impressed, mostly because of the limited drive capacity.

    But I’ll wait.

    But then, that’s what I said about the iPhone, wasn’t it? 😉

    I’m still waiting for my XO (One Laptop Per Child). Hope they sent one out to my “one child” somewhere before they send mine.

    We haven’t bought one, and I don’t think we will—limited drive capacity is a big factor, plus the laptop we have is very fine! And, of course, JCB is distracted by the XO. He’s now installed software so that it imitates a Mac—an old one….
