Macbook Air

I decided to take the plunge and turn in my windows desktop for a Macbook Air as my primary development machine. After reading some pros and cons, I figured I’d give it a try and so far so good. Mostly for development work, I run Eclipse (the STS variant) but also have been running XCode on a Macmini at work, so it seemed like a natural progression. I’m going to post some of my impressions here as I get more experience with it. So far, I’ve been pretty impressed. Mine has the sandy-bridge 2.0 GHz processor and 8 gigs of RAM. With the blue tooth keyboard, mouse and external monitor, it’s hard to tell I’m not working on the desktop. We’ll see if it can keep up as I start adding more projects to Eclipse and install some additional supporting tools.
