The MacBook Air: Three Sacrificed Features

I think Steve Jobs definitely hit the nail on the head with the MacBook Air—It's super tiny, it comes with a bright LED display, has exceptional battery life, a built-in iSight camera with microphone, and includes a large multi-touch trackpad. But as innovative and chic as this notebook is, I can't deny the fact that there are three main features that I wish it didn't omit. Scroll down to see what they are. Features like an optical drive that allows you to copy tunes from CDs to iTunes or watch DVDs. As well as an ethernet port since you're basically outta luck if you can't find a wireless network to connect to (good luck finding WiFi in older hotels). And last but not least, the MacBook Air only comes with one USB port. . . Let's just say you're going to need a USB hub for sure! Nonetheless, it's understandable that there's going to be some compromise for having a laptop as sleek and light as the MacBook Air.
