the new mb air can last 5hr of usage wif wifi... somemore on battery
bad thing too slim no optical drive
at 3K, that thing qualifies as a big piece of ****. Too many items that I would prefer to have are removed. stereo sound, USB ports etc
I think the price a bit steep.
Actually its price is in line with what sub-notebooks from other manufacturers are going for.
Like all new Apple gizmos, it pays to wait for at least the second revision of it. I'll probably hold out until the price of the flash drive normalizes. It's still in the novelty stage.
its true... not making a judgement on it since it is just introduced, but good or bad, people will flock to it...
Guys, you're missing the point. It's not meant to be a feature-packed, geek-pride gizmo. So if you're into features, firepower, etc, look elsewhere.
It's targeted squarely at the so-called "lifestyle" crowd, the kind that spends a few thousands on a fashion accessory only to forsake it next season. Cash-rich geeks will buy it too, as I'd be surprised if they don't already own another full-function notebook/desktop to use as the main computing platform. Of course, there'll always be airheads (no pun intended) who view and buy the macbook air as their main ride, can't be helped.
No money, no honey
Still, it's not for me but I'm sure a lot of people with money to waste will buy one. I'd spend the extra US$200 and buy a MacBook Pro or better yet, spend US$100 fewer and get a refurbished MacBook Pro.
