    But you should get an Air, I echo Faust's sentiment about it being the best tech purchase I have made. I owned the first gen Air and it was light but slow. The new one is perfect, and I use it for pretty demanding graphics as well.

    yeah,graphicsare very impressive but if you don't game does it really matter? I believe just the gpu is quad while the cpu remains duo... it's only 1 chip tho. anyway, the thing doesn't even allow you to do anything that would require more processing power. I wasn't considering getting the data plan model but when they announced 4g as really the major update (along with the graphics) I thought it would be silly to buy the thing without it. in the end, the fact that they considered 4g to be the reason to buy it, I decided not to.

    I'm kinda disappointed cuz I really haven't bought any tech in a while and wanted sumthin new to play with but i just couldn't justify buying.

    also, I really don't like the intended increased use of cloud services. I realize in theory they are great but I tend to be very paranoid where data is concerned. probably unfounded but.....

    I've taken apart a lot of towers but yesterday was the first time I've taken apart a laptop. Replacing the system fan required removing nearly every single component from the case, with the only exceptions being the display, speaker attachment, and USB board. Laptop architecture is a fucking mess.

    Yeah, the IPad rocks and it's not stupid to call it and IPad. Just like every other product on Earth, it was stupid to call it by generation to begin with. (i.e.-when you buy a new computer it's not called the Powerbook 17. It's just called the new Powerbook, etc.)

    I think the new version has much more accelerated graphics and am enjoying that. Like stated above, it's just a toy. I only use my IPad when traveling and that's because it has the best battery life of any of the Apple products. I flew 10 hours and watched video, did email and reading 80% of the time and only took it down to 40% with the dimmer on. If you want something with a legit OS that can do computing, just dump the extra couple hundred over the IPad 4G and get the MacBook Air. A MacBook Air is completely worth the couple hundred extra and is extremely light weight and zippy.

    Re:4G. Personally, in San Francisco, I live on Market street in the most populated area and still didn't have good cell phone coverage on AT&T after all the updates on the IPhone, but after 4G iOS 5 was released, I can finally make phone calls from home! Yay! I don't think the Verizon version dropped so many calls to begin with, but I can say that if you've been experiencing drop calls every 10 minutes on your iOS that the new update really kicks ass....

    Anyone who knows what to do with a Mac that's fell almost 2 meters and landed on wooden floor?

    It caused some scratches and I'm sensitive about it, even though I've had it for three years now. Any miracle pen that fills up the scrapes? Like that insanely annoying TV Shop-commercial:

    ^ maybe get a hardshell case for it? Haven't come across any miracle pens in my journeys.

    Damn, better preventing than repairing, I guess. Should almost get that rubber-ish case then.

    I placed my Macbook on top of a huge-ass Marshall speaker in our rehearsal room, which was hooked up to my buddy playing his bass. Not recommendable.

    Unfortunately the glass has a tendency to shatter if the phone hits the ground just-so. Thankfully replacement front screens and back screens can be had online for $40 and $10 respectively. Still very much painful to have to go through :(

    Bit the bullet on the new iPad and no regrets. Really awesome toy AND tool. Regular users - what do you recommend for a case and a stylus

    I don't use stylus but if you are talking about case, hard graft do actually made some nice one. it has the smell of MA+ in it. Very practical too.

    pretty sure you can charge anything from iPhone to iToothbrush with the same thing!
