I would appreciate it very much if participants in this forum who own and use the newest (Fall, 2010) generation of Apple's MacBook Air would post their reviews of this product line.
Some things I would like to know from Air owners:
1: What kind of tasks do you perform with your Air, and how do you like it compared to your previous laptop machine?
2: Do you use your Air as a kind of satellite machine of your desktop, or is your Air also your primary computer?
3: How do you like video display quality and sound quality of your Air? Its battery life and computing performance?
4: Do you run MacOS 10.6 only, or do you run Windows on your Air?
5: How well does software run on your Air?
6: Compared to other laptops, how silent/noisy is your Air?
7: What configuration is your Air in terms of overall size, CPU speed, RAM, and storage? (Note that I did not say "hard drive size") How much did you pay for your Air? Also: did you purchase Apple's ultra-portable SuperDrive with your Air, and what do you think of it?
8: What is your appraisal of the Air in terms of its portability? How do you like its relatively light weight and small size compared to other laptops?
9: How do you carry your Air? How often do you carry your Air? What do you pack with your Air when you travel/commute with it? What is your preferred packing solution for your Air?
10: What do you think about your Air's connectivity? Do you like going all-USB? What kind of USB accessories do you carry with your Air and how do you use them? Have you ever plugged a USB hard drive and some other USB accessory into your Air at the same time and been less-than-enthusiastic with the results?
11: Do you use an external monitor with your Air?
12: What are your most positive experiences with your Air? What do you feel are the Air's most prominent vulnerabilities/shortcomings?
