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.

...No.
You didn't actually read the points I was making.
If you're buying a netbook, it's not going to be the most powerful system you own, if you're smart.

The only point you've made is that using something very portable for watching HD video on an external monitor has its place.

The rest is better solved by using another computer.

Just because you _can_ do something doesn't make it a good idea.


The CPU isn't the only factor in most of these issues.
A battery at all, and the fact that using the CPU to its maximum will greatly reduce the life of said battery.
Small screen.

Total CPU power doesn't change those.
Those make using a netbook for most things that _ALSO_ use alot of CPU power silly.
