How Great Is The MacBook Air?

My sticky trackpad just fixed itself after an increasingly worrying week of soft, shallow clicks. This miracle means I can hold off on the impulse-replacement-purchase that I’d started to consider. Now’s just not the best time for that, so I’m grateful.

This is the first computer I’ve ever owned that still feels fast and new more than two years after I bought it. (“Late 2010″ model.) Thanks, flash-based drive. And, years in, it still feels light enough that I barely notice it in my bag.

Perhaps one small reason that Apple isn’t selling as many Macs as before: They age better and last longer.
