Sadly, just after I thought I'd got rid of all of my Apple notebooks I had to get a new Macbook Pro. And equally sadly, just as I've rid myself my the last of my utterly crud Airs I find that I'm going to have to lug the MBP around much more often that I thought - which means that if at all possible, I will need something considerably more portable. So it was with a sense of resignation that I found myself hovering over the 'buy' button on a 1.8/SSD Gen 2. But then I thought "**** it, I've got far better machines than anything Apple can crank out, why can't I hackintosh these instead?" - namely my Sony Z's, forthcoming TT's, existing TZ's and SZ's as well as the Voodoo Envy133 that I finally caved on and ordered. And I'd love to hear of anyone installing a rock solid Hackintosh install with no functional issues on any of those machines - because from what I've read, there seem to be problems. So once again, I found myself hovering over the 'buy' button with an even more pronounced sense of resignation. But then I thought "What if it's just as crap?" and I feel compelled to ask these questions. If the new Air is 'more of the same' in terms of core system stability, overheating issues, limited battery life, crazy charging times from empty (regularly encountered due to the battery life), etc - I can't deal with it, so I'd rather not buy it and get even more enraged that I've wasted so much money on substandard Apple junk in the last ~3 years, and I'd rather just lug the MBP and curse Apple(more). I'd be grateful therefore if a new Air owner can answer these questions. Your experience will be particularly appreciated if you were one of those who had problems with their 1st Gen Airs. Question 1: Are the constant overheating in the mid-20C's ambients, Mobileme syncing and other stutters definitively solved? Question 2: What is the REAL LIFE runtime with display at dimmest visible and Wifi or BT on (and in use) with applications for the most part not GPU heavy? i.e. none of this 5-7 hour nonsense with the liars when the issue of the battery life of the 1st Gen Air was raised seven months ago, but the actual - that means you own one and you actually use it - runtime with power saving enabled, but using the laptop normally otherwise for messaging and web. Question 3: Recharge time from fully discharged? I'd appreciate any informed comments anyone may have on the above.
