“When it comes to laptops and desktops, nothing matters to me more than reliability. While I may be directly or indirectly responsible for thousands of servers, desktops, and laptops, the one that matters the most is the one I’m using to manage all of those resources,” Paul Venezia reports for InfoWorld. “My laptop is my gateway to everything I do. It must be absolutely reliable and available constantly.”
“I’m currently on my third MacBook Air. I bought (and reviewed) the first one back in February 2008 when it was released; I then upgraded to the next iteration in June 2009,” Venezia reports. “Last week, the new MacBook Air arrived, and I wasted no time in putting it to good use.”
“Over the past few years, I’ve used some model of MacBook Air for probably 85 percent of my computing needs: email, browsing, more xterms than you can shake a stick at, writing, reading, creating, and consuming,” Venezia reports. “With the exception of my review of the iPad (which was written on the iPad), every word I’ve written for publication in the past 2.5 years has been written on a MacBook Air. I’ve logged over 100,000 miles with them and carried them all over the globe.”
Venezia reports, “They’ve never let me down.”
