You know Neil, I am pretty hardened as mac fans go too. Been using/hacking/restoring macs since the 90s. But having owned an 11-inch second-gen air, I can honestly say I'm not ready for such an underpowered laptop.
Maybe it's because I'm a pro user. Last year, i switched out my 2011 11-inch and exchanged it for 2014 15" rMBP. It's amazing.
I gave my 11-inch to mom, but she barely uses it as she has a iPad Mini
I have some serious misgivings about the lack of cooling, and the M-processor too. Sure, it's designed to be a lightweight machine and yes, that's what it is. But it feels like Apple has become so preoccupied with making a machine for every situation that they're at risk of recreating the same confusing lineup we saw when Gil Amelio was in charge.
And that scares me.
Well I agree with a lot of your views. I was in the Flint Center in 1984 when Steve introduced the Macintosh and really kick myself for selling the few hundred shares that I had at that time.
My attraction to Apple is OS X and find it hard to accept the way that they are taking it. HOWEVER I do enjoy watching the parade of great products and watching peoples reactions to same.
