Just so long you are aware of a few pitfalls.
There is no built in ethernet port. You can buy an adapter that can be connected via the USB port. But there is only one USB port. And obviously there is no built in optical drive. A portable optical drive would need to be used.
If you can deal without these then yes, i agree, a lovely looking piece of kit if getting used for surfing the net, running VMWare, office documents. For using more processor intensive applications however you might be better to look at a macbook pro?
Only one USB port?
Mine has two...
Just as an FYI for anyone think about getting one it's looking like there may be a Macbook Air 'sandy bridge' refresh far sooner than expected :-
Sandy Bridge MacBook Airs inbound ? reghardware
I didn't think we'd see one this year given it was only released Oct' 2010. Having said that it's not necessarily all good news as though the i3 processor will undoubtedly be better I suspect the current Nvidia 320 GPU may be better than the Intel integrated GPU that replaces it.
I think the 11 inch screen is just too small. The 13 inch is perfect and still very portable. A downside to the Macbook Air, however, is that there is no included CD drive.
But then everyone has their own idea of what makes the perfect laptop! Mind you it can't be all that perfect because I still haven't bought one yet and probably wont until either the price drops or they announce the i3 CPU version.There aint no way I'm buying one now if the upgraded one is literally out in 4 months time as rumours seem to imply :)
