Six weeks ago, I announced the arrival of the new baby in the house, an 11-inch MacBook Air. Alas, not for me — for my wife. One commenter noted that I might not see her again for a few days, which turned out to be an accurate prediction.
My wife is a geek, but this little machine has catapulted her into a whole new level of geekiness. Not a day goes by when she doesn’t say, “Have I mentioned how much I LOVE my MacBook Air?” (Yes, dear…several times.) I’d be worried except that the MacBook Air can’t cook, so I know I’m still safe.
At any rate, my wife has now written a blog post of her own, detailing her experiences so far with this laptop. If you’re thinking about a MacBook Air (or just drooling over one), it’s worth a read. The take-home message: as long as you don’t need raw processing power (video or pro-level photo editing programs, for instance), or if you already have a desktop computer, the MacBook Airs are fantastic tools. I’m drooling over the 13″ model myself. Maybe by the time we can afford it, the latest model really will be able to cook.
