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.

They need to be able to boot USB in some manner, because they have that 'restore drive'.
That said, I'm thinking we'll be seeing 'jailbreaking' become a necessity in the near future.

Oh. Good.
Might get one in a few years. Second-hand.

Edit: in fact, no. The SSD will wear down, and you can't replace it as it is soldered onto the motherboard.

That doesn’t look soldered on. In the presentation you could see it had a ZIF connector. It wouldn’t make sense to solder the flash on for BTO. It’s using a simple metal clip over the pins and a rubber plug on the other end.
