    Last year Santa (my generous son-in-law in Madrid) gave me a MacBook Air for Christmas. I am 67 & this is the first computer I have ever owned. Before I always had to use cyber cafes, hostels, libraries, etc. I do a lot of traveling & could really use this so I can take my laptop with me now.
    I hope Santa picks me.
