    Very nice bit of kit but don't know if I could justify they price as it is technically not that great a specification. 80GB hard drives are just not big enough these days. I like the idea of the 64GB flash drive but thats an extra 800. No DVD drive either (thats another option) and despite what apple say in there launch video, I still think we need an optical drive.

    Super sexy bit of latest technology and will undoublably turn heads but is that enough to make you want to spend 1200?

    Think I'll hang on for the new MacBook Pro which is rumoured to be out shortly.


    For those who haven seen it yet

    I'm an optimist but I don't think it helps much.

    Several magazines and online reviews have slated the new Macbook Air - apart from the size there arent any new features and they are lacking the main ones, most notably the optical drive!!

    I've had to work with these recently and all I can say is: avoid. Not Apple's best moment in my own opinion, and that's coming from a Mac 'advocate'!

    Yep, you're absolutely right - it seems that they're all searching around for the 'next big thing' at the moment - Windows Vista has been a bit of a let-down because of all the stuff they removed before launch (db filing system etc.).

    The Macbook Airs are all style and no substance - to use CAT5 you need to use a USB-Ethernet adaptor FFS! How rubbish is that.

    Who knows when something groundbreaking will come along!
