Enough with the small. Did you notice how the MacBook Air was precariously perched on Steve Jobs' finger tips? And opening it was an exercise in balance and fine motor skills? I for one am tired of viewing the world though increasingly smaller windows and devices.
I don't think in file or window metaphors. For me putting stuff into files, then giving those files a name and then filing those files for later recall simply does not work. I'm right brained and tend to think in pictures and experiences not words or numbers. Worse yet, I cannot process one file at a time - I need multiple images open and accessible (I like Leopards "Cover Flow" functionality in the finder) which is why I like 20 foot long walls and floor to ceiling white boards.
I recently traded in my 15" MacBook Pro for a new 17" MacBook Pro with the 1920 high resolution monitor. I like it. I like it a lot. There is now enough usable screen real estate where I can have three files open at one time. But I want more. What I really want is another screen where the trackpad and palm rests are currently located. That 5" by 15" strip could become a touch screen in the center and file dumps under each palm. I don't give a rats ass about my laptop being the thinnest or the lightest - but I am passionate about it's functionality relative to the way I function.
So for me the IPhone and MacBook Air are useless. I hope the Apple folks are brewing up some really cool stuff for us MacBook Pro users who need that creative real estate.
