    I’m also inclined to say it is one of the worst laptops out there. 80gb? 1 usb port? external dvd? this is 2008…

    B’coz there are many add-ons out there…
    1 USB can be 3, 5, or may be even more.
    We also got portable HDD right?
    Sooner or later you may just go for these external stuffs!
    (If you haven’t yet, ;))

    The aesthetic features, of course, has its setbacks. But I still love my Mac Air.
