As many of you have heard the today's tech news headline, Apple announced a ultra-portable notebook - MacBook Air. And I am due for a new laptop.
As mentioned in previous entry, my trusted PowerBook G4 bought in May 2004, although still functioning perfectly well, is due for replacement. I need something faster and more powerful and preferably with larger screen.
So, here's the tech specs of my current model, PowerBook G4 (12-inch 1.33GHz):
The tech specs of the new MacBook Air:
And the MacBook Pro (15-inch):
Somehow I don't think the 1.6GHz or 1.8GHz with 2GB non-expandable RAM MacBook Air will suit my need, but MacBook Pro (15-inch) is almost twice as heavy as a MacBook Air. I really like the ultra-portable design of MacBook Air and I am sure I can live without an optical drive on the road, but I also want something that is powerful. I guess I can't have both at the same time.
Don L suggested me to go for the MacBook Pro, for the additional power and onboard optical drive. Jack Lin from applewoods.org pointed out this blog entry to me. A neutral comparison for the two models.
I haven't made up my minds yet.
