I’m recently experiencing deja vu! I’m on an international trip, I of course, bring along a small notebook to do some light computing on holiday. The computer breaks down…
I had carried my Dell Mini 9, fresh with a Runcore 64gSSD upgrade that had been operational for a couple of months of casual use. I did a hard shut down as I was having IE problems. (Surprise!)
And now it won’t boot, the boot sequence can’t find the SSD drive. I’m guessing that the hard shutdown spoiled the boot sector, and everything is there just inaccessible. Either way, I don’t have a computer that works until it gets back to Australia.
So taking note of Judie’s sort of recent Mac meltdown and an on road purchase of a Macbook Air, I have done the same and am now totally on Apple hardware! So much for budgets, and I will have to sell lots on eBay upon return home, but really enjoying the Macbook Air! What was that rumour about Mac Tablets?
But question for fellow Macbook Air enthusiasts.. What are your favourite accessories?
1. Is the Macbook Air SuperDrive really worth it? Can’t I just share my Macbook Pro drive when I need one occasionally?
2. Since it is a slim sweet little machine, what’s the slimmest leather case? I need to get one whilst I’m here as there is limited choice and high prices back home.
3. I do have a 250g portable drive to use as a time machine backup
4. What else do I need?
Mac Air is available from $1499 on the Apple Store or many electronic big box retailers.
What I Like: I was up and running within minutes thanks to Mobile Me! The size and weight are fantastic! The design and screen are delicious!
What I Don’t Like: High price for basically a netbook, I’m scared to death to carry it around
