Over at UneasySilence, the author just got his hands on a new toy; a shiny new Macbook Air! I know, I know, I’m not too thrilled about it myself outside of the fact that it’s gorgeous, but unboxing photos are always fun to look at, and this set is pretty cool to look at.
One question though; if the Macbook Air doesn’t have an optical drive, why does Apple ship it with optical media…that you can’t use? I know, I know, there’s a utility that allows you to share the optical drives of other Macs in the vicinity, but that just reinforces the notion that the Macbook Air will never be a primary Mac. And still, isn’t that kind of backwards? Why not ship your media on bootable USB keys or something?
