That's ALL I use. PaperCutPro has a 32 meg clone as well. Love the portability when I'm seeing patients with it and then I hook it up to my Thunderbolt display and its great!

I'm thinking about getting a macbook air for mobile work. Has anyone used a MBA successfully for FM development work?
Do you want to anything that requires a hole in the side of the machine? Such as DVD/CD or cables from other bits of machinery.
I'm waiting for something like Belkin's dock thingy (http://www.belkin.com/pressRoom/releases/uploads/BelkinThunderbolt_010812.html), which is effectively an Apple Thunderbolt display without the display part. That will enable me to use whichever monitor is available if you have to do any client-site work, plus giving the full set of peripheral and network jacks.
I didn't realize that Thunderbolt was so limited. The large Mac screen is very nice, but $1000 for your only monitor choice seems disrespectful. Think I'll wait for a while.
The Mini display port cable with either a DVI or VGA connector will work from the Thunderbolt port. That means you are not limited to the expensive Mac display. Surely other companies will soon provide a similar range of adapters. Kanex already has the mini dispay to DVI.

it's not your only monitor choice; the Thunderbolt port also works directly
with Mini DisplayPort, and with an inexpensive adapter it be used with DVI
(single- or dual-link), HDMI or VGA monitors

they are not scarce at all, i've seen such adapters from at least half a dozen
companies; the one i'm using right now on a "early 2011" MacBook Pro
(Thunderbolt) is the same Mini DisplayPort to DVI adapter i used with my "early
2009" laptop (pre-Thunderbolt)
i have one from Apple and one from monoprice.com; the latter is not as pretty,
but it cost less and worked fine
That's good feedback. I'm back on the air then. I use a couple of offices. One has a nice PC with 2 monitors and gobs of software. The other is used primarily as a Xen Remote and has a nice Samsung (DVI) monitor and sluggy PC. I'd be using the air in this office and for field meetings.
Note: Got the mba on Friday. It's a nice lttle unit. As I have been on PCs since the mid 90s, I'm having to re-learn a few things. The Citrix XenDesktop works well.
