I was recently able to spend three weeks in Europe – two weeks working in London, and one week traveling to Brussels and Amsterdam. I haven’t had a lot of long work engagements outside the states, but it really helps get a more global view, and in my case, getting some insights around our international audience.
When starting at GameStop towards the end of 2010 I posted about all the reasons I was interested in getting into gaming – and while being in the middle of it all at GameStop has been fun, I’ve decided to go back to my first love… Travel.
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 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!
