Traveling Light

The perfect laptop for the airport and airline? – with the MacBook Air 11″ you don’t need to take out your laptop when going through the TSA line, and it actually fits on the tray – with your drink! #WIN

I agree with http://daringfireball.net/

I do work on the road using a MacBook Air, not an iPad, because I’m one of those users for whom the iPad’s design compromises get in the way, and slow me down. But I like having the iPad as a separate device, for reading and video. The marvel of the iPad is not that it can replace a Mac. It’s that it opened the door to all sorts of things that a Mac was never all that good for.

Overall my experience with the 11″ and Lion has been great, and the extra screen space is rarely missed and it performs like a champ. If only it had the iPad’s battery life, it would be the perfect travel machine!

  1. Tomato juice?!?! There better be vodka in that glass too.

  2. I love mine too. It really makes traveling and working on planes a breeze.

  3. Breaking news: Jeremy drinks tomato juice. More breaking news: Anyone under 70 drinks tomato juice without it being a bloody mary. :-)

  4. Agreed. I’ve had my 13″ for about a week and I absolutely love the size.

    On another note, I see you only paid for mobile Gogo. ;)

  5. Hat tip to Travis for that traveler tip! iPhoney worked great: http://marketcircle.com/iphoney/
