Just Like You're There

 

Not everyone can make it to the Mac expo. Maybe your boss is a jerk and won't give you the days off or maybe you're only 15-years old and "The Man" won't make an exception on their drivers license laws.

 

Whatever the reason, here are some photos of the Apple booth in Moscone Center. Hopefully, we'll see you next year.

Ever since I got my first G3 700 MHZ 30GB Hard drive Ibook I´ve been in love with Mac and looking for new products or reasons to lure me into buying a New Laptop.

Final Cut Pro pushed me into a Powerbook G4 with superdrive and Firewire 800 to handle video.

At age 3 my Powerbook is getting old and I'm considering a replacement, but The Mac Book Air won't do it, it looks cool, but has few real advantages and to many compromises (no Firewire, are you kidding?) I guess my money will sit on the bank waiting for Apple to come out with something really good.

Gotta admit, the Air is an awesome SysAdmin machine. Kinda left out on any serious design work with it's lackluster storage capabilities but the more I think about it the less I care. I just wish they would have announced MacBooks that take qeues from the styling and innovation of the Air as well. It's an aging line that could benefit from an aluminum finish, longer battery life and the new displays... perhaps even smaller drives (the 1.8" 160 is obviously not that expensive if they use it in a $349 iPod) to make it thinner as well. I somewhat detest stagnant design a la iBook G3 and G4.
The MacBook Air is not for everyone, but try to give me a good reason why you would NEVER use one if offered. You lie if you say you can't. Probably should have had Dylan end the keynote and not Randy Newman, cuz the times they are a changin'.

This may be OK at home for a toy, I am not interested in taking a step backwards except for the wifi. Buying a separate super drive is stupid. I converted from a PC because I liked the Macbook and Macbook Pro. I would never buy the Mac Air. If this is the future of Mac, I guess I will be left out. I can use the other junk, aka a PC for necessary applications and if I live long enough I will see someone correct the path Apple is going.

Well, I remember something something that the younger generation doesn't that makes me appreciate the Mas Book Air even more than most. I got a chance to carry the first Compac computer "portable" around at a computer conference for a day. My arm hurt after one hour. It was the size and weight of a sewing machine with just a green screen and a 5 1/2' floppy disk. To think of all the power and technology that has been placed in such a small space in beyond my dreams.

I expected more.
Why not add firewire ? Why solder the RAM ? Errrrrrr !!! ....

Is it a good idea to have those Macbooks hanging from fishing wire like that ? - i mean, they could fall and smash into five hundred pieces ?!!!

The products are terrific. What other computer maker can offer such innovation year in year out? I suggest Mr. Anonymous with the sigh please login to http://www.viz.co.uk/ and post his/her suggestion there. (select Top Tips then letterbox) .. a more appropriate Website for you.
Well done Apple and Mac engineers and designers. Brilliant products.
