Macbook Air or Hot Air?

Apple MacBook Air eh…. I’ve always been a fan and advocate of the PC. The complete customization, the abundance of parts and accessories, the immense software selection…. all great aspects of the PC. Of course not all is well with the PC. The infamous BSOD, random restarts, hardware/software issues, etc. Sure XP fixed a lot of that, some would argue that Vista fixed even more. All fine and dandy. Yet I still use a mac….

At my current job I have been given a first gen MacBook Pro, since I’ve had it… I’ve pretty much used my (well built and powerful) PC system for pretty much just gaming. With Parallels I don’t have to worry about any “lack of software support” that the mac might have. The machine has been great for me at work, at school, and on a personal note.

Recently I have grown very accustomed to the mac. In fact you could call me a switcher. I’ll never forget my PC roots, but point is lately I’ve been pretty pleased with the way apple has been going till now.

Today’s keynote was well… kinda weak. An update to the apple tv which no one cares about, iPhone and iTouch coming out with a handful more apps (previous owners need to pay another $20 for the apps)… again no one cares because everyone who’s savvy has their iPod unlocked or has used jailbreak. Time capsule? what?

So now we come to the Ultra light, ultra thin Mac Book Air personally I don’t like this machine. I don’t even care for the name much.
