Last week Jason Fried co-founder of 37signals wrote a post about some of the new things he likes. One of his recommendations was the 11″ MacBook Air. I reached out to Jason on twitter to try and secure an interview but I was not able to ( I am sure he is very very busy and there was no intended tone in that sentence.) But his comments were too good not to post for this series.
The first thing I noticed is Jason, like me, went down in screen size. He also has the money to buy anything he wants. He could have gone for a rMBP but did not. He selected the machine that fit his needs the most.
If this is not the best advertisement for what the MacBook Air series can do I am not sure what is.
I personally purchased a full size monitor for extended periods of work at my desk. I have no issue using the machine when I am mobile or when I need a change of scenery in my house but perhaps I should have spent more time using Jason’s method of working.
Thank you Jason for your insights !
If you know someone who is running a business or using an Air to do something cool please have them send me an email or contact me on twitter.
