I am what you can call somewhat of a Geek when it comes to technology, and computers in general. I have to have the best specs possible on the device that i’m using, which for my daily uses isn’t really a necessity.
I have a gaming home built pc at home and a really heavy 17″ gaming laptop (the MSI Dragon 2). The specs on the MSI are incredible, but the thing is, the PC + its charger weigh more than 6 KGs. Thats too much especially that I carry it with me wherever I go, and take it with me to work daily!
I decided that I had to change and get something a lot lighter as it was becoming a little bit of a hassle carrying it with me everyday + i get to feel like i’m really abusing it carrying it around on my shoulders everyday as 1. there isn’t much of a variety of bags that offer enough protection for the laptop, and 2. Its too big anyway and I do tend to knock it around a little.
Let me show you a comparison of before and after the change :
Here’s the top view of the difference between the Macbook air and MSI dragon 2 :
Heres the funny part, the side view, the macbook air is as thick as the MSI’s screen alone!
I know performance wise I wouldn’t get even close to the MSI dragon, but for blogging on the go, reviewing my files, simple photo editing, the macbook air is more than enough! My last apple was a 2004 Macbook (it was the black one) it costs more than a lot of laptops that are currently in the market today, but i really liked it back then, then i switched to windows 7 with the Alienware M14x, great laptop too, then the MSI and now to be complemented with the macbook Air – (not replaced).
I’ll be using it and i’ll write back my updates within a week 😀
For all you mac users out there.. What are the applications you cannot live without and recommend I install on my MB Air ?
