Hi, I saw your MacBook Air movie as the ideal authoring tool. You have obviously been using it for quite some time, is the keypad's life good? The point is that I am a novelist myself and I own a Lenovo Thinkpad. When I wrote my first volume (over 300 pages) I find my keypad much more "washed out" and not as comfortable to use as before.
Having trouble with your MacBook Avi? Using my inexpensive Lenovo - I also noted that some of the keypad felt different after a year of typing on. It took the HP 5 years with very high use..... the keypad doesn't have the same feeling as the new one today, but anyway, I can still play it.
I' m still in loving it. I have been using this 11-inch MacBook Air for 15 month intensive use (on a daily basis 3,000 words on average). Try the MacBook PRO touchpanels because they give you a little more room to move and it's a different feeling. Although I really like the MacBook Air keypad, I have the MacBook Pro Retail 13 CRAVE.
