Brendan Lynch in The Boston Herald salivates over Apple’s MacBook Air:
Aside from the price, the only bad thing I can say about Apple’s second, ultrathin MacBook Air is that it can be tricky to open, like splitting two pieces of paper stuck together with static or separating the sides of a new trash bag right out of the box. Otherwise, this is how using a computer should be.
Except for one thing:
I wouldn’t be able to justify paying the price of the MacBook Air for the features. It’s an extremely impressive machine, but most laptops are pretty small these days. How thin and light and quiet does anybody really need it to be?
In a few years, when Apple has figured out how to make these bells and whistles standard in more reasonably priced models, maybe I can enjoy the silence.
So, is that an indictment against the Mac in general (name a lower priced Mac notebook)? They seem to be selling in record numbers.
