My housemate just bought a MacBook Air.
I felt two conflicting emotions on his return from the Apple Store. As he unveiled the sleek, aluminium body of his newest purchase I felt proud that he had taken my advice, but frustrated that I couldn’t take my advice.
Before I suggested the MacBook Air, he was almost completely set on buying a MacBook Pro. It took a little persuasion to convince him of the supremacy of SSDs and the effortlessly thin and light design of the Air. In reality though, he knew the Air was perfect for him, there was only one thing holding him back; the lack of an optical disk drive.
