My wife has been using a shitty Acer netbook for like three years. Her job is upgrading all rooms with Promethean boards that don't function well with the netbook, so we went and look for an ultraportable that was fast and would run for a while. After looking at eveyrhing available in 4 stores (bestbuy, microcenter, and j and r, and some other place downtown) she settled on the base model 13 in air. It is a nice machine. I hate that I like it so much because that means that I will probably buy the updated 13 in pro in September, then go and get the time machine and all that bullshit. My job is in the process of going all Mac, I have a MacBook from 2009 that I am afraid to use expect iTunes for the work ipad. But this is convincing me to go Mac. Shit.
