    Hello MacRumors!!!

    This is my first post to the MacRumors forums. I just returned home and finished setting up my 13" MacBook Air. I've got a Core i5/128GB model. Uh...lets see. I see many members posting about ssd/lcd combos. I have Samsung for both. I know there are many posts here regarding the differences, imagined or not. I am just happy to have a MAC again!

    My last laptop was a DELL 15" Core2 which could have doubled for a doorstop or heating system for a cold home. It was old, old, old, old. I still get shivers thinking of that system typing on the Air.

    I swear, I didn't think I'd be this happy, but as each click of my brightly lit keyboard reinforces the quality of Apple engineering I cannot help the ear splitting grin that is eating my face.

    My last Apple was a 17" iMac from 2003. OSX had just debuted and the swivel screen models had just come out. 800mhz processor. I was even pretty handy using os9?8?-whichever, since it was loaded on there for the "old skool" users.

    But my I am BACK!!! I am looking forward to learning about my computer from the members of this forum. Now...back to playing with my comp.

    Congrats on the MBA, its an awesome piece of kit. I find my 13" MBA is and order of magnitude more functional as a laptop then my 2009 15" MBP, I can imagine the leap it must be over the dell.

    No companies can match apple's hardware in laptops.

    Dell XPS are still catching up to MBP.

    Welcome to the club! :D

    I'm a former PC/Windows/Ubuntu type of fella who's pretty new to OS X and my 2011 MBA 13" is my very first Mac. I'm supremely happy with it and it's good to see another happy owner/user too. :)

    Agreed. It's been 5 hrs and I'm still playing with mine. Though I have to admit, it is a bit frustrating getting everything from email to browsers to iphone sync set up from scratch again.

    Enjoy your Air!

    I used to only buy Sony Vaio SZ laptops for a long time.
    I have been using my MBA for 3 days now, I dont think I would ever buy Sony again. There is a huge quality difference.
