Ok...so other than installing OSX on a Dell 1330 back in 07/08 just because someone told me I couldn't, I have NEVER touched or even been in the same vacinity as an Apple. Not a word of lie. In fact, I have been the biggest PC guy one would ever wanted to meet. Until now. I really don't know what to say. I received the new Ivy Bridge Mac Air three hours ago and I can't put it down. From the exterior packaging to amazing build to easy to follow initial instructions to AMERICAN KEYBORD YEA!... this thing is easily the best system I have ever had in my hands so far. I mean lets talk build first and foremost. It is heavier and larger than my Toshiba Z830 which is still the lightest 13" Ultra on the block but...the attention to detail amazes me... 1. Plug - System not only comes with a two and three prong plug but connecting it to the systm means only holding the connector close. It is magnetic and one does not push anything in. You have no idea how many plugs we have been through here. This wouldn't have that problem whatsoever because any pressure at all simply breaks the magnetic connection. 2. Build - Easily the thinnest to date and, unlike the Samsung, this does not attract fingerprint grease. In fact, the feal has a bit of a texture which makes it a real nice feel. Every corner and edge has been honed to perfection; 3. Rubber ring around lid botton - I actually can't believe this hasn't been thought of sooner. Each and every laptop I have ever had has resulted in marring over time because the top is in contact with the bottom. The Mac Air actually has a thin ring around the top, gasket if you will, that protects it from just this. Keyboard and trackpad - full backlit silent keyboard with just a bit of pressure required. The trackpad is extremely simple to learn multigesture and is dead on every time. I cant tell you how many times I have been frustrated trying to scroll on different laptops... Screen... Viewing angle is incredible and this is extremely bright. I JUST started playing with the OS and , granted, I am a bit lost but I got the site up and the site CMS up to work on things soon enough. Something else... This system has FLASH!!!! One of the things that kept me away from Apple was its not being able to use flash but I got Safari up in seconds with a quick download and, well I have to admit this guys, the picture has never looked so good. Now...having said all of this, I am seriously looking for a negative here. I expected very much to find it and return this in a short period of time like the original Sammy but... nothing stands out whatsoever yet. This thing reminds me of...hmmm... does anyone here like pocket knives? Do you remember the feeling when you found just the right one and it the precision in the hand cut blade just amazed you? It is like that to me... Help!!!!!
