The new MacBook Air is pretty thin. It has an awesome tv ad, which even my lovely wife think is pretty cool. It has a solid state hard drive. It has a lot of cool things.
But I think it is more interesting what it does NOT have. For example an optical drive and broadband wireless. I am not sure I could justify buying a laptop without an optical drive – yes even today when network storage is common everywhere you go. I mean, when you need to share a file when there is no network, and you have no usb key with you, there are always a couple of CD-R’s floating about?
Who knows, when it comes to buying a new machine later on this year, I may lobby for a Air, but more likely I will pick up one of the amazing iMac’s.
