MacWorld Mania


Its the morning of January 15th in India and I wish it were opening time for Macworld Expo 2008 already. I know ‘Theres something in the air’. I just bought myself a Macbook a month back and realized that there’s a new one – Macbook Air (?) coming out today. Fortunately for me there are 2 other people in my family who are going to buy Macbooks so I hope to ‘replace’ mine with theirs. But it has to be compelling enough. I really love my machine. 12″ maybe a tad small, but if its done right the way only Apple can, why not?
Viva la Apple!
