david pogue (NYTimes) discusses people just like me :)
in reading todays circuits, i had to laugh out loud.
i would be spending an additional $800+ for less “stuff” (smaller drive, less RAM, and slower processor). this is what i have been trying to sell my wife on:
I had a weird experience, too. After having used Apple’s loaner review unit for a couple of weeks, I reached over to pick up my existing Mac laptop, the five-pound MacBook. After the Air, it felt like a piece of Soviet Army field equipment. When I tried to pick it up one-handed, I thought I’d break my wrist.
still coming down to the wallet though. the macbook i would work with is the white 2.4 with 4gb of ram (from crucial/other world computing) and MAYBE a larger internal drive (250gb?)… still not ready to plunk down the $1500-2000…
