MacBook Air is Apple’s best computer? Really?? Andy Ihnatko thinks so:

The Air is a bridge between the mobile-style devices that society seems to be moving toward and those desktop-style apps and workflows that we aren’t quite ready to abandon yet. And though Apple made some sacrifices in designing the MacBook Air, each one makes perfect sense given the role these notebooks were meant to play.
