Excellent, does everything I want and more plus does it better
The MacBook Air 13" 256GB is what I wanted based on specification. It beats the iPad on functionality and the MacBook pro on portability. Unfortunately I couldn't afford a new one so then only way I could get one was 'used but good' market - ebay. The machine is ideal, don't waste money on software, get Open Office and a few apps and you'll have a better machine than most more expensive machines. I just need to work out how to get the most out of it.
