  1. I got the chance to play with one of the new 11.6″ MacBook Airs today!

    OMFG, they’re absolutely stunning pieces of equipment. Gorgeous, solid and light!

    Apple will sell a zillion!

  3. Couldn’t they have waited at least for a few weeks before they released this update? Does it not look a bit bad, pushing out software update on the second day of a product release?

  5. @ EAR52069,

    I was showing my new iPhone 4 to some people at work today: They were literally fascinated. I was rather surprised at the reaction, what with all of the commercials for it that Apple puts out. The looks on their faces would have probably been similar if I had just invented fire. That was fun.

    Not really. I goes to show how efficient and careful they are. Granted that perhaps they already knew the new MBA needed these updates yet diliberatley waited until after release to post since it would be premature to reveal the existence before it was announced. You may also think,”Well, if they are so efficient and careful, why not preinstall this vital software update before shipping?” …Because they were already shipped. I would rather they post the update even minutes to it’s release than weeks to keep my new machine working at peak performance. Just my 2 ¢.

  9. No, you have to order your MBA with the full 4GB. No official way you can upgrade it yourself, although some ppl online say that the RAM connections for the SSDcard is miniPCI-E and that interface is already available on the market. Upto you, but I’d suggest you just order it directly to save the hassle. (The base screws are weird 5-point Torx screws.)
