Having recently been assimilated into the Apple borg I still haven't reached raving fanboy status, and probably never will.

I do, however, keep noticing mind-boggling design features on my Macbook Air. I mean, apart from being as thin as a Ginsu and utterly rigid. Today I just noticed that the sprung retaining clips in the USB ports are not the usual cheap stamped steel things, they appear to be honest to god ball bearings with springs behind them.

The retaining clips on my USB ports will outlast religion. It's ludicrous, ridiculous, and factors beyond overkill- and it pushes all my buttons.

The ports themselves, however, are still full of dust.

Just made my first work trip with it. It makes everything else look like trash.

There are good reasons why premium laptops - like Macbooks and Thinkpads - cost more: build quality, to begin with.

When we first looked at switching to mac I was shocked at the price. Since then I understand some of the reasons why.

I'm no fayboy either, but I'm glad we switched to mac for many reasons.

Yeah, they make good stuff overall and when they do make something bad they usually make up for it somehow, (with some exceptions where they deny there is a problem.)
