Thanks to the guys at Techwise in Waukesha I was able to get a MacBook Air configured the way I wanted within less than a day. The configuration on my desk is a bit inelegant—my older Cinema Display requires three connections if you want the USB ports on the back of the display to work. Nothing's perfect—I owned the display already, and not having to spend more money is a plus.
The setup is almost soundless compared to the iMac, which is very nice and will be even nicer when I get music set up here in the new office. Second, I can easily detach the Air and take it upstairs and sit next to the window to work. (I'll try to post a picture in the morning once it's light outside.)
I still have a lot of shuffling to do with files and outboard drives—I'll be moving photographs and music to separate drives, and setting up two backup drives—but so far so good. I like the setup and the freedom it gives. (For several summers I took the 27" iMac to Michigan with me. That works if you're driving. But talk about inelegant.)
