I'm a New Soul

Well, being a tech geek, it's only fitting that when I get my newest piece of bleeding edge technology I present it in the best way possible: a proper un-boxing. See, whenever the big tech blogs like Edgadget or Boy Genius Report get a new piece of equipment they meticulously open the box and show you the new toy in all it's glory.

So, here's my very first un-boxing of my new Macbook Air! Oh and as for the title of this post, if you've spent any amount of time in front of a TV over the past 6 months you'll know what I'm referring to...

Nice box!

Nice box, propped up on nice foam corner protectors!

Designed by Apple in California

Extreme close-up!

A place for everything and everything in its place...

Wow, that's subtle... I love it :)

Newest addition to the new Apple stable

Overall, I must say that Apple's stuff is expensive but you can tell that they cut no corners with anything, packaging included. The box was nicer than any consumer electronics product I've ever bought, maybe ANYTHING I've ever bought. The way everything was fit perfectly in it's respective bin and obviously hand packaged let you know this was no slouch product you bought.

The MBA is rock solid and stupid-lightweight; pretty unbelievable if you've never picked one up. The power adaptor, cords, manuals, DVD's and such probably weigh as much as the MBA itself, no kidding.

I'll post up my own little review of the MBA at a later date but I just wanted to post up my first geeky unboxing. For now it's on to task #1: getting it to play nicely with the Windows-based network (or maybe it's the other way around!) I have setup in the house so I can install software from the Dell's DVD drive.
