I'll pass...for now
Authored by: cycomachead on Jan 15, '08 07:28:21PM

It's seems like a fine product, but not for me.

First is the price and value: Too much and not there compared to the rest of the line.

Then I rely on my superdrive every now & then enough to make a difference. Also, I need FireWire and a 7200 RPM drive (wouldn't have said that one month ago ,but since I upgrade my MacBook...)

I still can't wait to use one, and the design is nice.

I've been waiting years for Apple to come out with an ultra-portable, but this isn't quite it.

I used to have an NEC Mobio (weight: 800 g), and then a Sony Picturebook (1 kg), and that's the size and weight I really want. This wouldn't be my main machine, just as the Air isn't meant to be. But for travel, I really need something small and light.

As for the price, ultra-portables always command a price premium. I paid over USD$2000 for the Sony Picturebook.
