Ive been reading this forum for years and decided today would be the day I join and start posting. I bought a 1.6 80 MBA today to go with my 24 iMac that I bought the day Leopard came out, and my iPhone to complete my little family. I look forward to talking on here, I read though damn near every post on this message board this week before taking the plunge on the Air. I think it will be updated in June, but Im going on a 28 day vacation in May, so I figured id get it now to have for that. Anyways, question. Based on the advice on this forum, I took it out of the box and am doing a fresh install. Im at my parents house and they have a G router. This is the most painfully slow process EVER! Its been over an hour and it finally just started the progress...I feel like a modem could download this fast. Has anyone else had this problem? I thought remote disc would be cool but not if its like this. I have an Airport Express with N at home, but obviously want to setup it up before I get home in a few days. Also, can you connect two laptops using USB? I didnt buy the optical drive or any dongles but I dont want to rely on thsi remote disc if its like this. Thanks!
