    This MacBook Air 13” is sweet.  I look forward to getting one some time.

    Yes it is. :-D You can’t be spending my money on stuff like that. You need to be saving for May. tongue laugh

    I will say that I am not happy about the keyboard not lighting up. My MBP spoiled me with that and now I miss it. :-(

    Just in the one in the Mac Arthur Mall Norfolk Va, Apple Store was packed! Nice cross section demographics. The specialist who checked me out using one of the mobile iPod Touch terminals said it had been packed all day. “I like it when its busy” she said.

    We will be getting a Apple Store here in Berkeley soon. It will be on Fourth Street which is a very upscale shopping district. The only drawback is that it is really hard to park there now, when the Apple Store opens it will be impossible. About 2 1/2 miles away there is an Apple Store in Emeryville which is in an outdoor mall with plenty of parking. The Apple Store there is normally packed. Also if you head East, about 20 minutes from Berkeley is another Apple Store in Walnut Creek that is also always packed.
    I’m lucky to live in an area with so many Apple Stores.

    I am at the VG store.  It is 6:15 p.m. pacific time and the store closes in 45 minutes.  It is very full.  I think there is about 65 people in here right now.  Just watched a guy walk in with his droid asking about how he can transfer his info unto an iPhone.  5 minutes later the sales associate is ringing him up.  By the way my co worker’s newest Droid froze on him at work.  I told him to get a real phone.

    The MacBook Air 11” is pretty nice.  Some young kids just walked in and asked about the price of the air.  They seemed impressed with the machine but thought the price was too high.  People love these little laptops.  They touch them and then they pick them up and study them.  Over time I think they will buy one as they grow up and head to college our get a decent paying job.

    I have been here for 5 minutes and now there is about 70 people in here.
