Joanna Stern Reviews the MacBook Air as a Windows 7 Laptop

Joanna Stern:

I could go on and on about how much better the touchpad experience is on the Air, but the big question I’ve always had is: why? Why is it that other laptop makers haven’t mastered the touch experience and Apple has been able to make it work so fluidly, even with another operating system?

Because no one other than Apple gives a shit about doing the hard work to get things like this right.

Interesting note on battery life: the Air got over 6 hours of battery life running Mac OS X, but only 4 running Windows 7.
