End of a Love AffAir.

I am writing to tell you that this relationship just isn’t working out for me, even though we’ve been together almost one year. I need to be happy and I’m just not happy anymore. When it all started, the sparks and super sexy attitude filled my eyes so much that I could not accept that you just did not complete me. And, I must confess, I have been seeing someone else. Yes, they are a little thicker around the middle, but they really fulfill all my needs. Plus, no offense, you’re smart, skinny super thin sexy, but you just lack the processing power I sometimes desire. Also, you are a little uptight, not enough ports and slots.  And don’t get me started on the way you hide your battery and memory.  I can see why you hide the memory part, it being so small and all.  But your battery too? Finally, that hard drive…. so shallow and slow and scant on space. A bulimic supermodel, always a binge and purge of information and data just so you could fit into that thin aluminum shell.  I know you’ll find someone who truly loves you for what you are, a white hot, super thin model of aesthetic perfection. They might even tolerate your diva like demands of a high price for low output. But me, I’m moving on. The new MacBook has all I need, even if a little bit heavier, I can live with the weight gain. So, goodbye Air, we’ll always have the memories.

If you wanna be happy for the rest of your life, never make a laptop a paper thin slice. Take my advice and here’s what you do, get a fatter laptop to carry round with you.

  1. You are indeed a cad. I guess you are the love ’em and leave ’em type when it comes to laptops. I still love my Air and would not part with it. Although I must admit to a touch of computer bigamy, as I do not rely on the Air as my sole computer.

  2. Found this post again because I was looking at a wiki page I kept of quotes, and this was linked as my parents were a big fan of the Jimmy Soul song and I’m a big computer nerd.

    Have you considered the newer MacBook Air’s, or do you find the MacBook is still a better candidate to tether your iPad to?

    I love my 11″ MBA I got in October 2010, as it replaced a 12″ PowerBook I’d had for years. The July 2011 MBA refresh is great now with Core i-Series processors and Thunderbolt, but probably too soon for me to buy into.

  3. Yep. It’s true. The 2010 MacBook Air kills. The new Air made my 1.5 year old MacBook Pro seem incredibly slow. So slow, in fact, that the Pro was relegated to a desktop position until a recent SSD upgrade brought everything up to speed, so to speak.
