I have been using Apple laptops for a long while and I have always loved the fact they have a little button to quickly see how much battery you have. It makes a big difference in just picking up the laptop and dashing out the door for the day; and do I need to pack the charger or not? Well I picked up the MacBook Air to be just that laptop to take on quick trips and the like. I really don't like the fact that Apple neglected to include a battery gauge button on the Air. Grant it the battery isn't removable but the end-user would love to have this feature, a feature that is available on even the standard starter MacBook. Just a rant and nothing more... happy computing!!!
