Did the new Air bring back tap to click or is that a feature on Lion?


What do you mean? Tap to click has always been a feature.

Tap-to-click has always been a feature; it must be off in his settings.

installed os lion last night.
biggest problem... gestures for back/forward on chrome doesn't work with the current chrome version. =[
it was probably my most used gesture.
but i do like the new mission control.
swiping between my desktops is definitely a plus. right now i got 3 desktops, one for studying/school stuff. one for videos and shit and one for just web browsing.
still getting used to it though


EDIT:
BTW you can download the OS at apple stores if you have slow internet at home like I do. takes about 10-15 minutes to download at the store

That sandy bridge 11" Air is awfully tempting.

for the people that downloaded lion, do u think that its worth the money and hassle over snow leopard? i think most of the changes arent very useful (for me at least)...

Just got OSX Lion and its pretty good. I have no complaints and WoW actually runs a tad faster so I'm happy. Just wish I could figure out where all the other features in Lion are...

Apple has reported that they are in the final stages of a 15" Notebook which a few months back was rumored that it was going to be the new design for the Macbook pro that they are releasing in early 2012.. But now rumored that it will fall under the Macbook pro and they might be doing a 17" as well...

TUAW corroborates our claim and also adds that they believe that this new notebook will fall under the "MacBook Pro" branding alongside a thin 17" model. Also, they believe it might be available in time for Christmas.

Damn guys I can't fucking decide what I want so I'ma ask y'all ♥♥♥♥♥s to help me out haha.

13 inch MBA Vs 15 inch MBP vs 17 Inch MBP

I know some of you guys are goin' say the 17 is better because it's bigger but is the extra 2 inches for the 17 worth it? And how 'bout them new sandy bridge MBAs, got me thinking smokeyface.

Maybe some basic gaming on the side like TF2. some photo editing, and school work and shit. The weight factor doesn't really bother me though.

^ I think 15' is perfect, i feel 17" is to big for a laptop and 13" can be to small for doing somethings... I would recommend the 15"...
