Just retired my 4 year old Dell, suspect a bad sector in the HD, battery still ok, can’t complain, it’s been dragged around construction sites all it’s life.

I usually go for Dell, rip Windows out and use Linux (normally Ubuntu), this time I’m trying something different, just bought a Macbook Air 13″ and I’m loving it, up to 7hrs use without recharging and a solid state Hard Drive (no moving parts, usually the weak link in laptops). No noise, no heat, syncs flawlessly to my phone for a high speed internet connection, via USB or Bluetooth, you can even make a call without losing the connection.

Weighs next to nothing and the body is pressed aluminium, guess only time will tell if it’s good value for money.
