Apple So, Apple held its usual autumn press get-together just now, and after a few rather uninspiring ones (to me, at least), they finally managed to blow me away, with the new MacBook Air (especially the 11.6" variant). They also gave a sneak peek at Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, which has... An App Store. An App Store Apple is going to open on Snow Leopard within 90 days.

Really?

The MacBook Air is impressive? Really? It seems to me the worst of both worlds: *meh* performance, and *meh* autonomy, especially when you see how much space is stuffed with batteries. Performance-wise, they should have gone with ARM processors, but there are other contingencies, I know, I know (compatibility and Intel).

Also, I guess you can't install another OS on it anymore? If I recall well (I can't promise), Macs don't boot on USB, and there is no disk drive anymore.

But yeah, it is very thin (with which sturdiness though?) and sleek, it looks like a concept rendering brought to life, untouched.

If only Asus were bringing the eee 1218 to stores...*sigh*
