    OP. Thanks for the shots....

    Can you do some good zoom shots of the vents for us all. I assume that they are in the new black bar/on top?

    kthx!:)

    I wasn't expecting them to be, only really went in for a look :eek: They didn't have any on display but had one 11" floating about to show people... they keep close to you when you take it off them for a hold LOL!


    Without getting it out it does seem so yes, its as if it fits under the other bit of the usb port.... odd.

    I just tried to do that but can't show then at all, the vents are on the black bit yes, same as my Alu MacBook.

    1.4 or 1.6

    Did you get the 1.4 or 1.6 processor? Does it run programs okay? If you get a chance, could you try Imovie and see how fast it might render some video into a Youtube video.

    How is video playback in general?

    Thanks for posting photos.

    I really like the form factor and symmetrics of the design, for eg. keyboard outer bezel width (almost) matching the screen bezel. Its one tight unit

    It is the 1.4, it seems OK so far. The dude in the apple store was opening like every application on the MBA and they all started very quickly so seems ok.

    I'll do the iMove bit later on if i get chance but have some stuff to sort out... as you can imagine! Transfer time! :)

    I want to see the boot time. I heard it's ridiculously fast.

    The little buttons on the top row are weird, little too small but just need getting used too.

    WOOW I'm just heading down to the Covent Garden Store as they have them on display! Wish I could buy one right now! I bet your the first guy in Cardiff to own one! I miss Cardiff so much and my Uni Day's! Back then I bought the PowerBook Titanium! That was a breakthrough machine at the time! Until the paint started chipping. LOL How FAR We Have COME :)

    We need some videos to see how some games run on that badboy. Maybe some MW2 or Steam stuff. Anything would be great.
