MacBook Air

The recent trip to Germany with a lot of city-hopping started making me very weight-conscious, so when we decided to replace the 2006 MacBook Pro we went with the new MacBook Air that had just come out. And I have to say it's remarkably nice. The difference in weight really makes a difference, not just when you're carrying it around in a bag, but even in normal use, and it's a very nice and responsive machine. I did run into one issue I hadn't thought about when one of the hotels on a recent vacation only had wired internet in the room (the Air has no Ethernet jack - it's too thin to have room for one) but on the whole I've been extremely happy with it so far.
