MacBook Air versus the competition

MacBook AirBlogosphere is of course all afire at the moment about the announcements from this spring’s Macworld: the Time Capsule backup server, updated Apple TV, iTunes movie rentals announcement, and the sleek MacBook Air. (http://www.macworld.com/) Regarding the latest one, I must add I love the design, but the sharp and fragile-looking corners would not probably be the optimum characteristics to expect from your robust, everyday working partner. And most of the software we use for scientific analysis and media work come only for MS Windows operating system, so there we are. Thinking about that personal, miniature device to carry with you always, I am actually more interested in the direction that other devices, most particularly Nokia N810 Internet Tablet and Asus eee, that cheap micro-laptop, are taking.
