The one thing missing from all the MacBook Clones out there

Raj Perumal Raj Perumal Profile: Raj Perumal

Hi folks! So after the MacBook Air started it all, there are now a bajillion MacBook Air clones out there. Ok, maybe not that many, but there sure are a lot out there!

The question is, have they succeeded? Well I would say they have in all ways but one. Sure there is great hardware out there, some of it even better than the MacBook Air I would say. But there is that last thing that I just have to nitpick at. And that’s the integration with the OS.

You see, when you use a MacBook Air and use the builtin trackpad, or even the external one, you get an experience as if you are almost one with the computer. The gestures that OS X allows is unreal in terms of the seamlessness of using the operating system.

Sure PC manufactures have tried to copy that with the trackpad software and drivers to allow you to have a similar experience, but it’s just not quite the same. It doesn’t seem like anyone has gotten it perfect just yet.

If you don’t know what I’m talking about, I urge you to try out a MacBook Air at your nearest store today!
