love is in the Air (MacBook Air 11-inch)
So, I got myself one of those, and it arrived last Friday. Due to other issues, I was unable to post the entry on Friday.
Anyhow, presenting the ultra-portable 11-inch full featured MacBook Air:
In May 2004, I bought my first Apple laptop - PowerBook G4 - a 12-inch laptop running PowerPC G4 1.33 GHz. Then in early 2008, I bought my second Apple laptop (and the first Apple Intel laptop) - my MacBook Pro - a 15-inch laptop running Intel Core 2 Duo 2.5 GHz.
(as usual, more photos follow...)
Without a doubt, the PowerBook G4 is outdated, since it is running PowerPC CPU. As for the MacBook Pro, it works pretty well to this day, however, due to its weight, it is not that portable at all. The new specs of MacBook Air looks great, so I ordered myself one.
Don't worry Don, this cheap MacBook Air is not faster (clockspeed-wise) than Don's laptop which run at 2.0GHz (64bit, dual-core), and nowhere near Don's 11 hours battery life (at a cost of additional 5.2 kg for the external battery).
And I have decided the replacement for my 3+ years old 15-inch MacBook Pro, which has been proven to be way too heavy (2.45 kg, 5.4 pounds) to carry around.
As a matter of fact, this MacBook Air is a huge saving (Don: Antony is poor). Without a doubt, the 11-inch MacBook Air is the cheapest laptop available from Apple. saving money.
At end, getting this MacBook Air means saving, saving and saving.
So the weight saved?
For the sack of completion, this the setup photo:
If you look at the photo careful, you can see the 375ml version of Mountain Dew. Apart from Doing the Dew, it is also good for size comparison.
Oh, so what did I order exactly, as usual, I customised the machine. This is also to follow Don's longevity purchasing principle. I max'ed out the specs where possible
Of course, right after taking photos, I have invisibleSHIELD applied to the new MacBook Air. I even leave it to ‘set’ for more than 24 hours. I know I am very patient. invisibleSHIELD works really well for me and many of my friends. (Except for Don, who has friends enjoy intentionally destroying other people's properties at other people's expense.)
Finally, a bit of advertisement. invisibleSHIELD has all sorts of precut protective films designed for almost all sorts of gadgets you can think of, including all Apple iPods, Sony PSP, BlackBerry, mobile phones, GPS, PDA, digital cameras and even laptops (many brands including Apple, Dell, HP, and Sony). If you have some gadgets you don't want to see scratches on them and you don't like the bulky skins or cases, invisibleSHIELD is your best friend.
Conclusion: (Don:) Antony is very poor.
