Most people, when they heard of the 11-inch Macbook Air being released, let out a groan and exclaimed, “Overpriced netbook!” On the other hand, the Apple fanboys (and fangirls) squealed, “Finally, an Apple netbook!” Being an Apple fangirl, you could guess how I reacted.

Macbook Air Review

One thing that gets me excited about this Apple machine is that it’s really just a smaller version of a powerful Macbook Air. It is not some specs-shrunk mini-laptop that had to have a few things sacrificed in order for it to be hacked to smallness.

For one, it runs on dual core. Most netbooks are running on Intel Atom, a single-core processor with speeds ranging from 1.33GHz to 1.66GHz. While this would be adequate for working with browsers and a a couple of other applications, let’s face it, a netbook will probably groan under the weight of 20 browser tabs opened to flash-heavy or application-heavy websites about what causes cystic acne.

Macbook Air Review: Why I’ll Spring For An 11-inch Macbook Air

On the other hand, while the Macbook Air has an on-paper processor speed of only 1.4GHz, the fact that it is a dual-core processor makes up for its processor speed. According to Engadget’s performance test with the 11-inch Macbook Air, there was only one problem that they had to deal with: there was a bit of a hiccup when watching a YouTube video. Not bad, considering that with most other netbooks, web surfing gets sluggish when you use a lot of flash and a lot of cloud applications like Google Docs.

Tech Republic says that the 11-inch Macbook Air actually performs better than most full-sized laptops, especially in terms of web surfing speed. Quite a feat, considering that its PC netbook counterparts have been traded in for more powerful laptops because they just weren’t fast or powerful enough.

Aside from computing power, one reason why I would want an 11-inch Macbook Air would be that it’s the thinnest and among the lightest in its size range. Other netbooks are chunky and have ugly lines and ports around its sides, but the Macbook Air just has smooth edges and a very thin profile that begs to have no other word to describe it: Sexy.

Tech Republic’s Macbook Air vs. Other Netbooks

Then, probably the most important reason why I would want a Macbook Air is that I’m a Mac user, and if I wanted to work elsewhere and didn’t want to bring a relatively heavier Macbook with me, the Macbook Air would be the perfect solution to my need for portability and seamless synchronizing and integration between my regular Macbook workstation and the portable temporary workhorse.

I’ve owned an Acer Aspire One ZG5, and every time I would use it instead of my Macbook, I would always wish I could install a Hackintosh distro on it, just because I find it a pain to miss the apps and the setup I have on my Mac. With the 11-inch Macbook Air, this old way how to get rid of severe acne would soon be a thing of the past.

Where you can buy other netbooks and laptops, including the Acer Aspire:

Aside from the OS differences, the ZG5 itself as a model has been one big headache to deal with. This model runs on Linux, but the distro that it has is pretty buggy. Many a user has had heartaches and headaches with this little guy, and it’s just not worth it. After my harrowing experience with this brand and model, it made me think twice about considering Acer for my next netbook. It’s funny to note that even the Best Buy website does not carry Acer among its product lines. We’re not sure why that’s the case, but it’s something worth wondering about.

The bottom line of a gadget purchase has always been how useful and how valuable it would be to you. For the die-hard Mac users, an 11-inch Macbook Air may be well worth its price tag. Remember to get one using a Best Buy Coupon so you can get the most out of your purchase.

Chances are, if you’ve been searching for a highly effective acne treatment for a while now, you’ve probably come across a little gem called Clear Skin MAX, a 6-stage complex acne treatment system used for curing moderate to severe acne in people of all ages.

As a former acne sufferer myself, I know how embarrassing it can be to have to worry about how you look with acne every second of the day. It’s a lot of work keeping up with those acne outbreaks and when they get bad–man do they get bad. If I could go back and start college all over using Clear Skin Max as a way how to cure cystic acne, I would do it in a heartbeat.

I remember days throughout college where I would not go to class, entirely because I didn’t like the way I looked that day with acne all over my face. I can’t tell you how many classes I must’ve missed over the course of four years as a moderate acne sufferer.

I was so self-conscious about my acne that basically my entire day revolved around whether or not I had noticeable acne in the worst parts of my face (I always hated acne between my eyebrows and acne below the corners of my mouth).

The question on everyone’s mind is: “Does it really work?”

Hopefully our review will shed some light on the true answer to this question. No need for the cheesy sales talk here–We put CSM to the ultimate test and let the results do the talking.

How Does Clear Skin Max Work?

Clear Skin Max is a 6-stage cleaning system that works every aspect of acne treatment into just six different cleaners and toners. When used in tandem, the six stages of Clear Skin Max are capable of clearing stubborn acne in record time. Most severe acne problems are completely clear after the first two months of treatment. Moderate acne sufferers can expect great results in a month or less.

The only downside to having an acne treatment this complex is that results tend to be delayed a little since you have to use all six stages of the treatment in order to see anything worth mentioning. If you rush using the stages too closely together, they will not be able to restore the natural body chemistry that creates clear skin.

Clear Skin Max comes with a cleaner specifically designed for “emergency outbreaks” such as blackheads or whiteheads that have popped up overnight and as a surefire way how to prevent cystic acne. This emergency cleaner should be used sparingly because it can easily dry out your skin to the point of creating additional acne breakouts. It is important to remember that acne treatments can only be successful if your body has a neutral pH level and is capable of creating clear skin. If you have a severe acne problem, you shouldn’t worry because Stage 1 of the cleaning system is designed to fix any imbalance of body chemistry.

Cleaning With Clear Skin Max + Tava Tea

Every order of Clear Skin Max comes with a supply of Tava Tea, an organic specialty tea that helps restore your body chemicals to healthy, natural levels. Drinking large amounts of Tava Tea is recommended while undergoing the treatment. Tava Tea acts as a super powered blend of anti-oxidants that will ensure the continued (and immediate) success of the Clear Skin Max acne treatment system.

Money Back Guarantee / Returning Clear Skin MAX

The makers of this advanced acne treatment system are so confident that their product will work for you that they’re willing to offer an unheard of, 180-day, 100% money back guarantee to all new and returning customers. They claim to ask no questions and provide no hassle during the return process if you should have to return your unused portion of the treatment for any reason. This is a huge plus for me because I personally hate dealing with customer support departments. You usually have to wait on hold for hours before you can speak with anyone willing to help you out. The creators of the Clear Skin Max system promise to make the process as painless and quick as possible. Thumbs up!

It is important to note that this product is not your typical acne treatment that you buy from a grocery store. This product has been considered the “Cadillac of Acne Treatments” due to its complex treatment instructions and stages. For best results, it is very important that you follow all instructions and labels carefully. If you have any problems while using the acne treatment, you should consult your doctor immediately.

Buying Clear Skin MAX 6-Stage Acne Treatment

This is an example of another acne treatment that is not sold in stores. If you wish to purchase this impressive 6-stage acne treatment system, you will have to do it on their official website. Of course, they ensure the security of your order and your personal information will be completely protected at all times. Ordering online has never been easier and shipping to US based customers is very quick and discreet

If Barack Obama wins the 2008 presidential election, it will be an occasion for rejoicing for America’s enemies. Here’s why:

America’s enemies SEE: a man who is willing to sit down with the leaders of hostile countries with NO pre-conditions whatever. They THINK: Hey, this guy can be easily manipulated – and we’ll eventually be able to take America down altogether because Mr. O. wants to avoid conflicts at all costs. Instead of sending the troops against us, he’ll just keep trying to negotiate one deal after another.

They SEE: A guy with questionable political relationships, including an unrepentant American terrorist who has not only escaped serious criminal prosecution, but is even a distinguished college professor, and a pastor who has gotten away with spewing anti-American sentiments and hate messages for years from his pulpit. They THINK: Hey, if Obama is willing to have these kind of people for friends… maybe he’ll be friends with us, too. We’ll certainly use used garden tractors to our advantage.

They SEE: A guy who doesn’t see the military as a priority and is even willing to cut funding for it. They THINK: Hey, it will be that much easier to wipe American soldiers off the map, since they’re obviously not that important to Mr. O. and they won’t have the resources needed to beat our dedicated terrorists and suicide bombers. . .

They SEE: a man who is overly concerned about how humanely terrorist prisoners are treated. They THINK: Hey, we can carry out the worst terrorist attacks ever conceived. . .because this guy won’t do anything bad to the terrorists he catches.? The death penalty? Out of the question, even though our ruthless terrorists have taken hundreds of innocent lives themselves.

They SEE: a man to whom patriotism obviously isn’t cool, a guy who doesn’t salute his own country’s flag and won’t wear a flag pin on his lapel – unless somehow guilted into it. And he would be willing to refrain from displaying any form of patriotism if someone makes a fuss over it – even if that person is a foreigner on U.S. soil while making those anti-American statements. They THINK: This is a guy whose love of country is so questionable that he might be willing to put patriotism aside for the sake of his own interests.

They SEE: a man who is willing to accept campaign donations from people outside of the United States, even though this is technically illegal. Obama gets away with it because only amounts over $200 have to be detailed as far as names, addresses, etc, go – and he simply asks for donations from these people to be given in very small amounts. They THINK: Wow, this guy could possibly be easily bribed with just the right of amount of cold hard cash. . .

They SEE: a man who is obviously inexperienced as far as leadership of a large country and military dealings go. Neither Obama nor Biden have had any military experience whatsoever, and it really is important that either one or the other should know SOMETHING about how our armed forces operate, since they will be the ones giving marching orders in an international conflict. It also doesn’t help that Obama’s turbo-tongued VP practically guarantees a major crisis within six months of being elected, so that the world can see exactly what the used John Deere lawn tractor is made of.

While Biden claims that Obama has a steel of spine, it’s more likely that Obama, when faced with another 9/11 type of catastrophe, will prove to have a spine of jell-o. The guy has been treated almost like a god by the liberal media and has NEVER been in a pressure cooker kind of situation. They THINK: “OK boys, bring it on! We can take this guy down in no time – and the rest of the country along with him!”

They SEE: A man who has said, with his own lips, that if elected, he will completely eradicate America’s nuclear weapons program.? They THINK: “OK guys, time to step up our nuclear weapons productions! America will be a sitting duck once Obama’s gotten rid of all THEIR defenses!”

America’s enemies are not stupid – they know quite a bit about what goes on in our country and no doubt they’re watching this presidential race pretty closely. This is why we need to have John McCain in the White House – because McCain, and Palin too, are two people that that America’s enemies know better than to trifle with. With used lawn tractors for sale, terrorists will certainly think twice before trying to pull another 9/11 on us – he is a man who will stand up to our enemies and not kowtow to them like Obama probably would.

I have the exact same confidence in Sarah Palin, should she ever have to take the reins and assume the role of president. But on the flip side, Obama’s loyalty to the U.S. and his stance against terrorism is very questionable and I really fear for the safety of our nation if he gets into office. I’m not even sure that Biden, despite his years of experience in the senate, would be much help either during a national disaster, since he’s never had to take control of the country during a REALLY crucial time. In my opinion, he has made far too many gaffes during his public speeches, to really be considered trustworthy for the position of the second highest office in the land.

Don’t give our enemies a reason to rejoice by electing Barack Obama. Help keep our beloved country safe by electing two people who REALLY care about America: John McCain and Sarah Palin.

I don’t know about you, but I find two of the scariest words in the English language right to be President Obama. Thinking about this guy and his cronies being in complete charge of our country in less than five months. . .it just sends shivers down my spine.? And it’s not just because I’m a conservative republican. Barack Obama could very well bring our country downhill in a hurry – politically, economically and socially.

So why do I find him so frightening as a possible president?

First of all is the cult-like aura surrounding him, which I have never seen the likes of with any other candidate. The media swoons all over him and gives him the “favored candidate” treatment. He can do little wrong in their eyes and is the only one of the four currently running for political office that hasn’t received blistering, intense scrutiny in some form. Some criticism, yes, but nothing like what McCain, Palin and even Biden have received from the media. Few dare to make jokes about him and the liberal media journalists are all fairly decent to him, while at the same time going out of their way to make Sarah Palin look like a pathetic VP choice. It’s almost as if he’s the political equivalent of a pop star, causing some right-wing groups to dub him The Messiah.” And with good reason.

A group of schoolchildren – young kids, not teenagers — recently sung a song composed in Obama’s honor. . .which is eerily reminiscent of the Hitler Youth. Hollywood treats him almost like one of their own.? And scariest of all is his endorsement by radicals like Louis Farrakhan, who made statements like, “You are the instrument of change that God intends to use in this country” and “When the Messiah speaks, young people listen.”

The frightening thing about having used riding lawn mowers for sale that is this popular, is that people will rush to the polls to vote for him simply because he is the one endorsed by most of the bigwigs in this country, not because they stop to think about whether or not he’ll really make a great president. Some may like him because he has a nice smile and makes elaborate, inspiring speeches (that is, as long as he has one written out for him and he has a teleprompter to help him out; otherwise he’s totally at sea.) Others believe that, just because he has a plan for the economy that is different from McCains’ or Bushs’ plans, he must have the right ideas. And many blacks are excited about the possibility of having one of their own in the White House.

I can fully understand why many of these African-Americans would be excited about Barack Obama. However, I hope that they will go beyond thinking, “I’m voting for Obama because he’s black” and start thinking, “Does this guy really represent the values and beliefs that I hold dear?” I’m not voting for McCain and Palin because they are white, like I am, or enthusiastic about Palin because I’m happy to see another woman on the ticket. No, I’m voting for them because they represent the values that I share. If a minority candidate were to hold the same beliefs and convictions that I have, I would happily endorse them too.

And speaking of race, I’m concerned that Obama, if elected, could possibly use the racist label to get his way when people disagree with him. There have a
