New MacBook Air!!!! - Page 5

post #61 of 65

My brother got the 13" for Xmas. Application load times are impressive. PS CS5 pops up like greased lightening! It's the slow CPU doing actual processing that made me think twice. Otherwise, a very sweet machine.

I checked today and it is true, the Trim function for SSD hard drives on MBA is not supported under OSX.

 

When they fix this I will buy one. I doubt there are a lot of power users using the MBA  as their primary machine.

Picked one up yesterday with a Magic Mouse. Too bad it has a stuck pixel around the middle. Sounds pretty good as a transport!

I would rather have a revised version of the ipad to surf the net in front of the tv. I do like the OP comment on hooking it up to a usb dac >amp>headphones. It would be a pretty sweet little system for the casual user. I cant believe they didn't add 3G to it, seems like a no brainer. I cant wait to check them out in the stores. I cant believe its .65" thick.




It's helpful to me, Thanks for your analysis!

The SSD that Apple chose for the MBA has support for garbage collection in its firmware. The fact that OSX does not support TRIM is therefore a non-issue.
