MacBook Air | Rickard Andersson

MacBook Air

Bleh. Turns out, the MacBook Air isn’t quite what I was hoping for. I wanted a small notebook, not a “thin” notebook. I can’t really see the advantages of having such a thin computer. There are, however, lots of disadvantages:

  • No optical drive.
  • No Ethernet port (!).
  • Tiny harddrive (80 GB maximum).
  • Slow harddrive (4200 RPM parallel ATA).
  • One USB port.

Really, the only thing the MacBook Air has going for it is that it’s thin and pretty. I’m not sure that’s enough, Apple.

    I quite agree with you here. It is thin, but that is about it.

    I just watched the guided tour yesterday. Yes, there are no real advantages. However, it’s a great item to show off :D
