In a nutshell, it's very light, thin as a gingersnap, sports a multi-touch trackpad and improved MagSafe connector, and unsurprisingly, has garnered a boatload of attention in just two days since its debut at Macworld. The consensus points to agreement on foxy looks, wow factor, and satisfactory portability, but disappointment with the enclosed battery, limited ports, absence of CD/DVD drive, and overall impracticality for everyday work use. Wired, Gizmodo, and the New York Times, (yeah, yeah along with the rest of the bloggiverse), have said their piece, surely with additional pieces to come. On the sidelines, Bruce Nussbaum forgoes hype for TV and the bigger picture and Greenpeace is sooo not impressed.
Jeannie is a true jack-of-all trades, looks forward to a day gone swimmingly, and finds joy in all things awesome. Brilliant art, rocking the renegade music scene, conjuring up haute designs, other people's hot designs, tasty salad, trashy magazines and unicorns are some of the many things she is passionate about.
