Wow… that was fast. Just a short while after the MacBook Air started to sell, the laptop that fits inside an envelope seems to be less useful than the envelope when pushed too hard. Apparently the laptop shuts down one of the Intel Core Duo processors under certain conditions and shuts down altogether at other times.
The solution to these problems was supposed to be a patch but users report this patch didn’t help.
The laptop does seem impossibly light and thin so perhaps these problems shouldn’t be totally unexpected. There is a reason we call ultra-advanced designs "bleeding edge." As long as you keep that in mind when you make your purchasing decisions you won’t be surprised if you occasionally need a Band-Aid.
Having said that, I should mention, my kids seem to like the Elmo variety. 😉
