    Nice review 🙂 I love how thin and light the MacBook Air. And the aluminum feels so good 🙂 The trackpad all Apple notebooks are really the best.

    yes because its not apple or andriod thats why, because if it was, this guy would not shoot down RIM. Every time RIM is brought to this guy, there is always a dirty look, because he feels that his failure. RIM is not to be, next year it’s a bunch bull went bankrupt, so were their shares, but now that Apple has sued Samsung you can bet RIM shares rose.

    Hello! What is your opinion on Nexus 7 vs. iPad? I have the preorder for the Nexus 7 (I have a Galaxy Nexus and I love Android, but I have an iPad too hehehe …) and I want KONW if I made a good deal … hehehe thanks in advance!

    It’s honestly not very different. At least as far as I’ve seen. I’ve used an iPhone 3GS with iOS 5, and a Motorola Atrix running 2.3.4. And it was essentially the same as far as I’ve seen.

    I did not want to start a flamewar. I was not really mad when I wrote this comment, but I had not made me the way to make it enjoyable and overly friendly, if you know what I mean. Anyway, I’m really interested to hear what Android multitasking is not that different than iOS because doing iOS Downloads continue in the background, but Apple does it limit at a certain time (I’m not sure how long). That seems the only effective difference between the two implementations.

  6. JarOfRats says:

    The Nexus 7 is light, thin, fast and cheap. But there are limits. NO micro-SD card slot, no HDMI port to send your video to a TV, and you’re pretty much forced to use it in portrait mode. If you are OK with these factors, the tablet is velvety smooth, incredibly fast and lightweight. It is a highly refined product.

    This review is from: Khomo Black Rubberized Satin Soft Touch Hard Shell Case for Apple MacBook Air 13” For new 2010 2011 & 2012 models (including newly released Macbook air) (Personal Computers)

    This is the only cover I have ever used on a laptop fyi, but I like this cover.

    PROS * The rubberized surface is awesome.
    * It is translucent so if the Apple lit you can see it by the cover, otherwise it’s just black.
    * Rubber feet on the bottom.
    * Fits pretty good.
    not * Continental at the ports affect as I have read in reviews for other products .. CONS
    * The lid is plastic so it does not slide a bit. I was thinking of bonding with some rubber cement.
    * It is surprising how close the fit small for 2 clips on the bottom and 1 on top. If one of them were to I grab’m sure some would be useless if my rubber cement works idea.

    I have this black Khomo cover about two weeks. texture and feel of the cover was great and (except for two small white spots), but the biggest problem for me is that there are not fixed be integrated to the body of my 13.3-inch MacBook Air One feels “two additional skins” (top and bottom) to flutter around I eventually abandoned that and took that out
