Just got back from Apple's store in Lima, as I happened to be nearby.

Those Apple-branded 30" LCDs that come with the Mac Pros are excellent, does anyone know who makes them?

This is the first time I saw a Mac Book Air... heavier than I thought it would be, but I couldn't see myself owning one as I'd be too scared to break it.

Prices in Nuevos Soles look terrifying.. the Air was over S./11,000 and the Mac Pro tower with huge screen was almost S./20,000. I could buy a car for that.

Good products though, and nice to see Apple deems Lima worthy of their presence.

I think Apple LCD's might be made by Phillips. I returned two 20" Apple Cinema Displays as the backlighting was uneven, always brighter on the left - didn't want to pay the Apple Premium for a normal product.

That was my thought too - they wasnt an arm and a leg for it in the UK too, hopefully they'll apply the same pricing strategy as they have to the iPhone...

I found the Mac Book Air to be light because when I travel for work, I have to lug around an IBM ThinkPad.
