I have been holding off purchasing the MBA. I moved to Mac in October 2010 with an iMac. That is still my "main" computer here at home. It works great with never a problem. Last fall I decided to upgrade my first generation iPad and ended up buying the iPad Mini w/Retina. I use that a lot but I see with the new MBA, it may not be used for anything more than a reader. It is great to use thought while watching football or college basketball games for in-game stats. I initially bought the MBA for when I travel which includes more tent camping than anything else. I have a blog and it was much easier to type from a laptop, adding photos etc ... plus it has more memory as my iPad Mini is only 16Gb. I know I could add a case with a keyboard for the Mini but I never found a case that I really liked for that after looking at function, and price. I found though while traveling a few weeks ago, that my iPhone 5S was the most valuable device for weather, texting friends, and the default map. Since the trip was scheduled for only a couple weeks I decided to rely on free wifi instead of buying a new internet data program. Due to my locations ... in the middle of nowhere ... I never did use my MBA while traveling. Here are a few questions where I have not been able to find the answers to and cannot figure out: 1. I wanted to use this laptop as a travel computer, meaning having it's own bookmarks, it own photos, simple a solo computer NOT synchronizing with my other Apple devices. 2. I found out the hard way due to the way the defaults are set up, that Google Chrome synchronized with my iMac's bookmarks and did exactly what I didn't want to happen ... many bookmarks that I will not use while traveling/camping. 3. Today I have used Safari all the time and am seriously considering making that my default browser on this device. How do I keep it from synchronizing automatically what my iMac and Mini bookmarks and favorites?? I did go into the preferences, logged into iCloud and unclicked Safari. This was the only way I read about that was suppose to stop automatic synchronization. Photos seems to synch with my iMac and other devices .. but I don't have the room to do that with my iPhone. I do not plan to buy storage from iCloud. I back up all my devices to my iMac not iCloud. Do any of you use your MBA as a separate computer without synchronizing with other Apple devices? It's a great computer, built early 2015. The 13.3" screen is not a big adjustment as I expected after using a 27" monitor for the past 4-5 years. I do have external hard drives to run time machine and also for additional memory. So how can I keep from everything synchronizing in the future with all my other devices? Is it possible to pick and choose what I want this MBA to synchronize with my other devices?
