I've seen some forums discussing the review, complete with folks running the numbers on the 50GB file transfer, claiming that I was getting only a few MB a second during the transfer. I was getting 10-11.5MB/s during actual file transfer (as I mentioned in the review), with the remaining time taken up with the other requirements of migration such as configuring user accounts, replicating settings, and whatever else is necessary to completely (and successfully) migrate one system's state to another. Raw transfer time was probably closer to three hours, and I'd transferred nearly 60GB of data when it was all said and done. I also find it odd that of everything I wrote, this sidebar has become the hotpoint. It's specifically about the migration assistant, which is a tool that I've found to be incredibly handy and a significant timesaver, but one that not everyone uses. In fact, it's only tangentially related to the Air. I do really wish that Apple had coded it to let you pick specific folders to transfer as part of transferring a user, but the thirty seconds it took me to do that manually was hardly a cause for concern.
The whole point of the review, sidebar, and my additional comments was to point out what the MacBook Air is, not what others seem to think it should be. Much like a comparison between a Ford F-250 and a BMW Z4 is relatively worthless, reviewing the Air in comparison to even a MacBook Pro is worthless -- they're two completely different products for different needs and markets. That's the whole idea.
If you want to view the Air as just another laptop, that's fine -- you're just missing the point.
