In the Big Boston Store and this laptop is nice. No button click in front of the trackpad. What? Oh the whole trackpad now clicks down. I could get used to that.<br><br>The one piece of aluminum ia pretty slick. Each key has its own carved hole to poke out of. The keys feel more sturdy possibly because of the solid block they are anchored to.<br><br>The screen is amazing. Either I have to go home and clean my MBA screen or this thing is packing more deep luster resolution than the mba. The total black glass to the edge is sexy too.<br><br>Just came in to get an EyeTV and that is all I am walking out with but this thing is calling my name. <br><br><br><br>
Have you watched the demo movie on the Apple site. It hits on each of the features and characteristics you just drooled over. I heard one calling my name yesterday -- until my wife jammed a pair of corks into my ears. <br><br>
The Boston Store is worth the pilgrimage. I walked over from my lab and paid homage to Fenway Park on the way (it may go dark tonight for the season).<br><br>After getting back home and typing on my MBA again I realize the solid aluminum keyboard is the same on this as the new ones. So upgrading just so I can lose the click button on the trackpad and get a glitzier screen is not enough. The MBA may serve me for several years until they come out with a thinner lighter one.<br><br>I do need to clean my screen.<br><br><br><br><br>
I was at the Montreal Apple Store today myself (located very near where I work! ), doing exactly the same thing. I almost walked out with one myself, they are so neat and cool. Funny thing, our store only had one on display (two, if you count one MacBook Pro and one MacBook), with a crowd around each. All the other laptops available to play with and on display were the older MacBook/MacBook Pro models.<br><br><br>My Wii: 5721 8516 7937 9434 (PM me if you Wii)
The Boston store had at least twenty of them on display to touch and use no waiting although there is always a crowd in there. So they are making a few of them. Hopefully they don't have supply problems with these things.<br><br>Been to this store at least two dozen times and it hasn't gotten old yet.<br><br>The glass stairs I shot on an earlier visit:<br><br><br><br>
Cool pict!<br><br>The Glass staircase is also an attraction at the Montreal Store, it keeps me going up to the second level even if I have absolutely nothing to buy there for the time being.<br><br><br>My Wii: 5721 8516 7937 9434 (PM me if you Wii)
