Ain’t that a beauty?   Full description and specs here.   But at $1,700?  Hmm.  Will I buy it if an amount like that somehow lands on my lap?  Nah.  I like its thinness and aluminum casing, but I still really want an aluminum MacBook.  I hope that’s the next update that Apple will make.   Maybe that will make me ditch my faithful Minnie who has served me very, very well for a little over two years.

MacBook Air’s main selling point is portability rather than power and abundance of features.  It’s not ideal as a main computer.  And since I can’t afford – and really don’t need – the luxury of two Macs, I’ll pass on this one.  You don’t always have to bite the apple. 😉
