    Unless the share is sitting on a FAT32 drive he wouldn't be able to write to it or create a share anyway. I call user error / ignorance.

    EDIT: WTF? I must have been smoking crack last night. OSX can write to NTFS file shares, I do it all the time. I got confused with Ubuntu I guess... :rolleyes:

    The entire Toshiba R500 line is thinner than the Air. Also some Sony laptops in the past are thinner overal than the Air, take a look at the X505 at a mear .6" at the thickest point. If you are only counting the thinnest point, then yea, .16" is the "thinnest", but since when does the industy go by the thinnest point?

    It can't natively write to NTSF if the drive was lets say installed like in a Mac Pro. Network file shares though are writable but that is because its based through a database.

    Toshiba R500 Notebook | Geek.com R500 - .77 inches

    Sizing it up: MacBook Air vs. the rest - Engadget - .16 to .76 inches

    Sony X505 is 2.1 cm or 0.826771654 inches.

    Please don't blurt out crap :p
