No Disc Drive.

Tiny, slow HD (80gig) unless you wanna shell out an extra 1300 for a faster, albiet SMALLER SDD.

ONE usb drive... ONE

And no removable battery!

What the fuck?!

Sounds like an 1800 dollar iPod, to me.

the macbook air isnt aimed at for people that want to get a good deal on a laptop, they have a regular macbook for that. the macbook air is aimed at consumers that have money and want something that looks fancy.

Oh, no ethernet, either.

.3" thinner and 2lbs lighter doesn't seem justifiable - even for those with deep pockets.

But isn't that the way Apple does things? First generations always tend so suck.

what do you mean "isn't that the way Apple does things"?

if you mean making money than yeah.

a companies priority is making money and that is what apple is good at.

apple knows this shit is useless but it will sell since everything in technology at this stage is about smaller and lighter.

No one uses ethernet anymore. (Those who do probably won't be buying the air.)

Use a USB hub shit, problem solved.

There will be a service to deal with battery problems and such. (Or so I hear...)

Use an external disc drive. (It does kind of suck, but whatever.)



It is by no means perfect, but I still think it's fucking tight.

It fits inside a fucking manilla envelope. 'Nuff said.

^^^ Well... The iphone didn't suck. Or at least my friends are too happy with it to know it sucked. I like Apple...

Basically this is all a rich or a busy person actually needs now. It doesn't match up at all to what I want to do, but I think that picture of it in a manilla envelope is fucking nuts.

Do you know how expensive flash hard drives are?? The are unbelievably quick, it's what we will be using in the future.

That being said, you wouldn't recommend the 'Air' to anyone wanting a serious system, this is for the flamboyant bastards with too much money..

Sounds like hate to me. Persoanlly i think its ahead of its time and i dont even like mac's. But i mean think about it how often do you actually use the disk drive or ethernet port on your laptop i know i dont. I do think the price should come down tho 1700 is too much but i think its a good product.


you dont use your hd? riiight.

the lowest end macbook pro is almost the same price as a air once youa dd the external disk drive intot he package

removal battery, build in cd drive, able to upgade ram (air ram is ONBOARD), able to upgrade drive, able to use a monitor/tv as a 2nd display, not faggot, wont break like an air, not faggot.

conclusion:
macbook air is for faggots

With that kind of money, why don't you just get a MacBook Pro?

Macbook Air already brought in some customers just for the trendiness of Apple itself.
