I don’t understand all the hostility to the new Macbook Air. It is definitely aimed at a certain class of users. With that said. I sure do not need one. My iPod touch is turning into a light as air pocket computer. After that v1.3 firmware update I rarely even turn on my PowerBook around the house anymore. And nearly as little take my PowerBook with me to the coffee shop any more. I have my email setup and all using SSL for encryption. The only concern I have is about twitter and a web based AOL IM client not being encrypted. So I setup an account on publicvpn.com. The iPod Touch added VPN ability like the iPhone with the v1.3 update. Now just to test that next time I go to the coffee shop. But once that works and some good native applications come out due to the developer kit I may almost never take my laptop for casual communications again.
