Retiring my favourite computer of all time

The 11" MacBook Air was probably my favourite laptop of all time. Super portable, and fast enough for every day work. I replaced the battery half-way through its 7-year service, so it’s still good for 4-5 hours of use.

But today I retired it, and passed it on to my daughter. I hope she enjoys it as much as I did.


Not retired! Just re-purposed it.

I think my favourite computer of all time was the 12" PowerBook. For the same reasons, it was very portable.

I never did get a Macbook Air. I probably would if they made a smaller one.
