As many of us have read/written, the new MacBook has placed the MacBook Air lineup at an awkward position. The title "Air" typically refer to Apple's thinnest. Two years ago, it was the MacBook Air lineup that was the thinnest of all MacBooks. Today, the thinnest, albeit not as practical, is the new MacBook. So where does it put the current MacBook Air machines? My guess is, MacBook is still in the experimental phase. The tagline "Years Ahead" on Apple's website gives us a hint that this is what the future looks like for Apple's thinnest notebook. That's fine by me. I'm sure there are people who love MacBook for its design and thinness. But for me, the 11" MacBook Air is still the winner. Yes, it has a subpar display that many of you probably hate to look at. Yes, it's no longer the thinnest laptop. But it's still more practical not only in the sense that it has more ports but also the fact that its keyboard feels better than the new MacBook. So, as a big fan of the 11-inch MacBook Air, it's natural for me to be worried about the future of this lineup. I couldn't care much about the 13" MacBook Air because I have a 13" MacBook Pro with Retina Display. As powerful as that is, I still end up using the 11" Air more than the Pro. Despite being a small notebook, this laptop is truly amazing and is more capable than people give credit for. The perceived idea that the 10-11 inch laptops can't get actual work done -- thanks largely to the Windows machines of similar size -- doesn't really apply to the 11-inch MacBook Air. My brother has a 10" Asus laptop, and he was blown away when he started using the 11.6" MacBook Air. The difference is huge. This machine can actually get the work done. That makes me wonder, am I the only one who's worried that the 11" MacBook Air may be phased out? Are you going to be missing it too? How would you replace the perfectly balanced 11" MacBook Air if it does get phased out? Don't get me wrong. I love how the new MacBook looks and understand that that, too, can get some work done. But the keyboard just kills the deal for me. And that's what worries me. If Apple phases out the 11-inch MacBook Air, I don't know what my next ultraportable, take-it-everywhere laptop will be. What about you?
