If you’re any kind of geek, you probably already know about the Apple Keynote Speech, and the announcement of the forthcoming MacBook Air, the thinnest laptop ever.
I prefer to call it the MacBook Slim, as that sounds more bad-ass to me. While the J.D. explodes with envy, the rest of us can admire and covet.
I won’t bore you with the tech specs here, but as we all know, being slim and sexy comes with a cost. To eliminate those extra inches you might turn down that extra scoop of ice cream or opt for salad instead of a steak dinner; the MacBook Air doesn’t have a internal disk drive or an ethernet port, there’s only one USB 2.0 drive, the memory can’t be upgraded, and the battery can’t be replaced by the user. But is it worth $1799 / £1199?
