    A couple of weeks I asked from the wonderful guys over here if I should get the MBA since I already have a MBP.
    cause I travel about 3 hours every day to work. I finally got it and love it.

    Now the story begins.
    My wife (not a mac user yet or she is;)) has a Dell laptop and when I told here I'm getting the new MBA she was screaming why I need another computer over the MBP but got it anyways. :)
    after having it for a few days she told me she wants to use it for a little bit, she became in love with it right away. after that she told me she wants to take it the next day to college, I let here.
    Than it was only once a week, than she said one day for me and one day for her, now she wants to have it every day :(

    I guess I'll have to buy one more of this little toy. :confused:

    I understand it's your wife and stuff but...maybe try to reinforce the fact that it's yours and you bought it for a specific purpose? :)

    I understand, I bought our Air and said to her we would share it(My wife and I with two user accounts on it) and well Apparently I don't know how to share. :)

    Why is that her fault? You bought yourself TWO Macs, and left her with a Dell. What kind of husband were you anyway :D

    Why are you complaining. If you I was her, I'd have made you given up both computers and made you use the Dell ! :D

    You are the man of the house.

    Be a man, and get on your knees and beg for it back.

    Well in my case a member of my family looked at the Rev. A and expressed deep longing. I was very happy to give the piece of crap to her.

    And now, the parent has also been smitten by the looks of it and I will be handing over the equally piece of crap Rev. B shortly.

    My understanding of your question.
    You bought a macbook air for yourself and your wife is now the primary user.

    Man Law states that "sharing is caring" and this is not permissible.

    Not all. And some issues I have with it are actually part of the design.

    See, some of us actually do travel a lot and try and do work on it. Judging the level of improvement of the machine by gauging how improved the viewing experience of a cat playing the piano is pretty indicative of the level of 'work' notebooks are expected to undertake for many Apple users.

    Do you care to elaborate what you were doing which was so poor on the Air while travelling? While I understand that the Macbook Air is not as powerful as some of the other laptops, it now comes close to the Macbook. I think it's still one of the most powerful laptops out there for it's size and portability. So what exactly did you replace the Air with which is much better for you for travelling?

    It was a story about a Windows person that had the chance to use a Mac, and now uses it daily. I find most Windows users that use a Mac are surprised by how much they like it. They all almost always tell me "I just never had the chance to use Mac before . . ."

    what's wrong with that? My wife uses a white MacBook now and I told her that if she likes, she can upgrade to either the new aluminium MacBook or the MacBook Air. All she have to do is tell me which she wants. Loving is sharing your Mac. So, buy another MacBook Air. You should be glad that she's giving up the Dell for a Mac!!

    Yea, someone I let use my MacBook once said all macs suck because they don't have anti virus software and he was missing the blue screen he constantly got. At least she's addicted to it and not hating on it. :D
