There are some interesting benchmark numbers in this link for the MacBook Air, on both the SSD and HHD versions and running both Leopard and Vista. <br><br>http://www.mobiletechreview.com/notebooks/MacBook-Air.htm<br><br>The SSD is so much faster. Have you all experienced this?<br><br><br><br><br>
I don't know that anyone here has tried the SSD version, but it's not surprising that it's wicked fast (channeling Bostonese) given that it doesn't have moving parts.<br><br>[color:red]</font color=red> [color:orange]</font color=orange> [color:yellow]</font color=yellow> [color:green]</font color=green> [color:blue]</font color=blue> [color:purple]</font color=purple>

Faster--for some usage, not in all cases.<br><br>But more reliable in the long term--and THAT is what I want! When it's cheaper.<br><br>nagr[color:red]o</font color=red>mme<br><br>I require stroyent!<br>TeamMacOSX.com | MacClan.net
The cool thing for me is:<br> (1) I can't afford one, <br>(2) BUT it's a great step to future models which I may can afford and the technology on those less expensive models will be even better. even if that's 2-3 years away !!<br><br>WOW... damm isn't this why we all LOVE technology ?<br>iMacs.<br>iPods, <br>quad cores,<br>8 cores,<br>iPhone,<br>now latops you can lose in a 10 MPH breeze !! <br><br>tickles my pink !!<br><br>David (OFI)
They certainly look cool.<br><br>Funny thing is, my 15" Al PowerBook G4 works so well for me that I don't seem to crave a new laptop yet. Maybe if I see one of these in person... don't know.<br><br>Considering that I have an intel iMac right beside me that's probably 4X faster then my laptop, I still find myself working away on the PowerBook, I don't think I'll be thinking of upgrading yet.<br><br>But then again,<br><br>We do have a 12" PowerBook that no one loves here, maybe it will just fall off the table and need replacing. <br><br>I started out with nothing and I still have most of it left.
