    Just doing all the software updates required on a new laptop. My first thoughts are that I haven't felt like this about a new laptop since playing with an IBM Thinkpad (remember those?), a long time ago when those were the very best laptops that money could buy. It manages to be no bigger (and quite a bit thinner) than my white MacBook while somehow at the same time feeling bigger. I'm really liking the keyboard and keyboard light.

    The only thing I don't like to far is the trackpad. I much prefer my big Magic Trackpad and will end up using this with the Air. Overall, very nicely done and a big upgrade from my older MacBook.

    Love my 13" Air as well and was shocked at how much really

    The trackpad is so far superior to my Dell at work

    But at home, I use a Magic Mouse, wireless keyboard and wireless trackpad too
    Hooked to my 23" ACD

    I have yet to find anything my Air can't do for me in my work flow
    And I came from a 17" MBP

    The ability to have it everywhere with me is priceless
