I’m typing on my MacBook Air right now, and I’m not going to lie, when they first came out I was all, “Ugh, Apple just always has to make stuff that looks cool but costs so much more.” I resisted for a long time. But now I own a laptop that fits in an envelope and tucks into my purse and I hug it and love it and call it My Precious.
Ahem. That may be more information than you wanted, granted. But the point is that I love my Air as a full-function laptop that is just as portable as a tablet. If you’ve been thinking about getting one for yourself, go to MacConnection‘s TecHoliday Gift Center, because they have brand new 2011 MacBook Airs (not the latest generation, but the previous one, I think) for $699.
These will sell out quickly, but it’s an awesome price if you don’t mind not getting the latest/greatest and appreciate saving $300.
