Personally I haven't had so much time lately to contribute but I hope we
can have FreeBSD running on Macbook Air soon... This require at least
Haswell graphics (maybe all new netbooks/laptops do?) and perhaps some
fixes regarding the USB system which currently seems to be some problems
with.  Maybe that can be an option if you can live with an usb wifi dongle
(which now is the size that they only stick out 5mm from the port).
