  • New Macbook Air 13" Unboxing [Pics]
    So a new Macbook Air showed up a minute ago at the door. Decided to take a few pics and make some basic observations while unboxing

    Look, it's a box

    What could be inside?

    Apple always has classy packaging

    It looks like every other apple notebook

    Mag strip, papers, ya know

    Macbook Air Software Reinstall Drive

    Admit it, this little thing is badass, forget those ridiculous DVDs

    It's thin

    Really, it's thin (next to 13" Macbook Pro)

    Looks a lot like the 1st generation Macbook Air (same size, feel, ~ weight)
    (I know I know, early adopter fanboy ... )

    Just a couple shots

    It took me a minute to figure out how to turn it on

    The screen IS brilliant

    Review coming someday, this thing is going to be tied up forever transferring on files ...

      "Bugs" generally refer to software issues and since it runs Snow Leopard 10.6.4 it will have the same bugs as every other Mac on that OS.

      yeah its the ssd (and the gfx is pretty solid as well), they are saying its fast because its fast, if/when i get around to writing a review later today I'm considering whipping up a video of it vs a mbp

      I installed PowerPoint on mine 13" air. Wow I'm impressed. The processor is not at the clock speed as my MBP i5. And this thing smokes my MBP. Why is that? Anyone else notice the super fast speed?!?

      Let me know how this works out, I was considering doing the same set up as a primary computer. Do you guys think this is adequate for a main computer?
