After all the trouble last year I’ve been treating the MacBook Air with kid gloves, so it was with considerable horror that I felt the hinge graunch again. This time the insurance company fixed it without prevarication, but qualified its return with “will not cover this fault again” which I think would be a prima facie case for return to vendor under European extended warranty legislation.
I don’t want to try it out. The MacBook Air is now on Ebay and I’ve switched to a slightly heavier MacBook Pro with a nice big 500Gb disc. The Air is beautiful, easy to use, light and just plain cool. It is however too fragile for me.
