Hey, to everyone at MacRumors. This is a sort of minirant about the new 2010 Macbook Air... if you don't wanna hear it, then go to a different thread Kay, starting. It seems like everyone who got the Macbook Air is really happy with it. Faster, lighter, thinner, etc. Now, first, lemme list the new things: SSD, higher rez display, and noticeable cosmetic differences, lest costly (mostly referring to 11" model), among a bunch of other differences And the bad things: Removal of backlight When you look at it from this perspective (a lot of new things contrasting to little 'bad things'), it does seem like the jet set of Macbook Airs, doesn't it? HOWEVER: I feel everyone who bought this bought it at the WRONG TIME! Listen, hear me out. Although there are a bunch of new things, Apple's unprudent demeanor has yes, changed the Macbook Air, but also held out on so many things. Next gen macbook Air will have: SANDY BRIDGE LIGHT PEAK BACKLIGHT (contrary to our expectations, apple DOES listen to our complaints) THINNER DESIGN (doesn't that always happen?) HIGHER REZ DISLAY Among a bunch of new things. And YES, I know the thinner design and higher rez display are GIVEN, but c'mon, guys. We'll have the EXACT same Macbook Air as this generation, next generation, only with the Sandy Bridge and LightPeak and Backlight. By that, I mean Apple's taking THIS gen's 'pretty good' into next gen's 'excellent'. <- yes, again, this always happens, but this time, it's a _pretty_ good FOR THIS GEN's TECHNOLOGY instead of apple's USUAL 'good'. Concludes my rant.
