My New MacBook Air Is Here!

MacBook Air

My new MacBook Air has arrived! I am so excited! It looks the same as my old machine (I have the 11 inch), but for one thing… it has a backlit keyboard! Woo Hoo! I so love it! It may look the same but…

MacBook Air Backlit Keyboard

How does that phrase go? We can make it better than it was, better, stronger, faster! Well I can tell you that is exactly what happened. I loved my old MacBook Air. But this new one blows the old one out of the water. There is just no comparison. If you are even thinking about upgrading your old machine, it is well worth it. The performance difference is palpable. The graphics difference is huge. I am using an external monitor to give myself extra real estate to work in and the resolution difference is like the difference between looking through an unwashed window versus a freshly washed window. Seriously… This is one happy camper I have to tell you.

I have my system set up so that my MacBook Air is on a display stand – the ErgoPROP – so it is the same level as my external monitor. Then I have an Apple blue tooth keyboard and mouse sitting in front of the monitor. It’s like having 2 computers. Because I have the Air and not a Mac I have the added benefit of portability when I travel. Oh yeah…

Have you purchased the new MacBook Air? What do you think of it?

    You know what they say "once you convert you never revert". You are now converted my friend. I choose the new MacPro because of it's more enhanced graphic capabilities but it Rocks. Who knows, I may have to add an Air to my now growing collection of Apple products. hee, hee, hee :)))

  4. Looks fantastic Cheryl! Maybe I should switch to Mac?:-)

    The pictures look better from my laptop vs. my phone. 🙂
    As for Susan's comment: I had a Mac once (about 7 years ago) and I didn't stay converted. Probably a cash flow thing though. 🙂
    I must say, I can't wait to get my Surface either! 🙂
