Macbook Airs for Education

Always-on Speck case

The following was an interesting story to come up yesterday:

Apple offers budget, EDU-only 13″ MacBook Air as white MacBook replacement

We’ve heard some debate that the Airs weren’t up to the rigors of full-time student use, but this would suggest that Apple believes they are.  So how fast before the case manufactures figure out how to protect an Air from damaged when it is dropped from tables on a regular basis?

I believe that Mobilis, our custom-manufacturer of Macbook cases in France, claim they have a Macbook Air case now.  We will need to review it, or just take a closer look at Macbook Pros…

I’m pretty certain we couldn’t use a low-spec Macbook Air for four years if it only has 2 gigs of system memory and 64 gigs of storage ram.  I believe some of our current software images alone are in the 30 gig range!
