Thanks for arousing my tech-desire...just when I was about to rid myself of all desire, too. Guess I gotta go sit facing a wall for another ten years...

Really, though, after reading an article on the book a couple of cons y pros leaped to my attention:

CON: no internal optical drive, and I distrust "Remote Disk."

PRO: Less environmentally destructive.

Following are the related paragraphs:
"No internal optical drive is included, but Apple will offer a $99 USB 2.0-based add-on SuperDrive for users who need it. For users that opt not to get the optical drive, Apple is offering a new software feature on this machine called Remote Disk; it enables you to "borrow" the optical drive of another Mac or PC on the same network as the MacBook Air, to use for installing software, for example.

Apple's frequently been in the crosshairs of environmental group Greenpeace in recent years. Jobs offered information about the environmental goals behind the MacBook Air -- it has a fully recyclable aluminum case, and is "the first" to have a mercury-free display with arsenic-free glass. All the circuit boards are BFR-free and PVC-free, and the retail packaging uses 56 percent less material than the MacBook packaging."

Very sad indeed. They really should be ashamed of themselves. For my part I guess it was the last blow. Bore with them. For good.
