Year 2011, first gadget: MacBook Air! First time using MacBook as my primary computer. It takes some time to get familiar with the keyboard (with the additional keys like command and option on the keyboard) and the Mac OS X. I think this is a great notebook if you want the portability.
The MacBook Air is so light, solid, slim and sexy. Mac OS X is quite stable, responsive and smooth. The greatest things in this OS that Apple has port from iPad or iPhone are the App Store for Mac (although not much now) and the multi-touch function.
Uninstalling an application is so simple that you simply drag it in to the trash (just like how you click the X button to uninstall a program in iPhone or iPad). Not need to worry about things left behind by the application as there is no registry in Mac OS X (basically the Unix OS).
I have also installed Windows 7 in a virtual machine in (VirtualBox and it is free!) Mac OS X. So far I didn’t encounter any major problem. Windows 7 performance so far is acceptable as I only use it to run Microsoft Office and browse website with require active X.
Below are the photos taken during unboxing. Enjoy!
