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.

Hmmn, thin in profile, thin in features but fat on price. Where I live, an 11.6" Airbook with the configuration you'd actually want is a pound short of one large. And not even an SD card slot. If you want an SD card slot - surely a standard feature in 2010 - then the price goes from fat to morbidly obese. A Dell m101z, say, will do much more for half the price and when I take it abroad it's unlikely to attract nearly so many of the wrong kind of looks, so chances are I'll be keeping it for longer too.
