Dear MacBook Air, I've Missed You…

For the last several weeks I’ve been working on a huge project at work 1. This means I’ve been spending a lot of time with my work computer, a speced-out 15” MacBook Pro. While you are a great computer and quite speced-out yourself, I needed to keep work and home life separate. The last several weeks have required my undivided attention on this project and that meant you were neglected.

I still took you everywhere with me, but I’m sorry you’ve seen so little action. Now that the project is done2, I hope things start getting back to normal. Especially, now that we’re moving into this new house, we’re going to need your help finding how to keep the place maintained. Not to mention, I really hope to write more, and you really are ideal for that.

I’ve got to say though, I’ve learned to appreciate you more the last several weeks. I’ve learned that you are a laptop, while the MBP is a mobile desktop. Seriously, that thing fries your leg and is ridiculously heavy. I much prefer your cooler operating temperatures. Yes, even when I occasionally open up Chrome and you get a hot Flash3 causing your fan to spin up. Even at your hottest, you are still much cooler than the MBP ever gets.

Anyway Air, just remember, you’re my MBA4.
