    Quick question: Is the screen hinge made of plastic?

    Yes, it does appear to be plastic. Sounds like plastic too when I tap on it. :mad:

    Want to be my hero and post a picture of the side of the computer with the display open.. Every picture apple has is a slight angle, I want to see how thin the display is!

    in other words replicate this if you could:

    Does it get hot when you use it? Also is the loud fan noise?

    I have not had any issues with it getting hot. I have been using it for the past couple of hours now. I have not heard the fans come on either. Granted, I have only been web surfing and messing with photos so I can't say I'm doing anything processor intensive yet.

    I have had issues with my wireless connectivity but only because of my crappy router. I had the same exact issues with my previous notebook which was a 17" MacBook Pro. When I am connected though, everything works perfect!

    The 'speakers' are where the hinge of the screen is.

    Good stuff. I'm wondering how far it opens up. My Powerbook opens very wide, meaning I can use it in bed with the keyboard held perpendicular to my chest and still see the screen. The MBA by contrast opens far less wide, meaning in bed the screen would point too far down for me to use it.

    I have to think these new macbooks are going to cut into the sales of the mba. they are now so similar and you get so much more for less money on the macbook. the only plus to the mba is ultrathiness which isnt much.
