Apple's MacBook Air: evolution, not revolution

Scott Bradner of writes:

"[In his Macworld 2008 keynote], Steve [Jobs] introduced the MacBook Air - the "world's thinnest notebook." [...] But I am a bit disappointed. The MacBook Air is no iPhone. This is not a product that will change the definition of a class of products like the iPhone did to smart phones."

You live in a trailer park huh?

I seriously doubt MS is worried about Apple's laptop when they don't make laptops or computers. Maybe you meant Dell.....dumb*ss

i'm still using 2k because its the most reliable out of all the MS OS(s). i do feel awkward when i use MACs tho, so LINUX FTW! lol.(y doesn't nobody like linux?)

I was forced to start using it this year(because of school) and I must say after a couple of days of tinkering with it, I must say it's quite nice. Loads faster, visuals are a lot better with Ubuntu and other such things. But having said that I find networking and basic software installation easier on Vista. Granted it's not participially hard on Linux once you figure it out, just not as simple as point and click.

And installing the video drivers, yesh what a pain...Until I found Envy that is.

It a slim laptop. thats it really.

Mind you, its a super coooool slim laptop. Pretty good spec to, id like to see some benchmarks for the solid state HDD option.

I've been thinking about getting a MacBook, but this Air has just put a spanner in the woorks for me. Big price difference mind, £1200 here in the UK.

It's the end of an age really. They got something so thin that they can't make it any thinner. The next thing will have to be made out of a different kind of material kind of like the bend-able video screens.

It's was done a few years back in Japan. And I think the OLED is capable of doing it also.

A notebook w/o a cd drive, 5 hr battery, and no ability to change hdd or memory.

yea thanks apple, you made a nice looking paperweight.

macs are superior. with your clunky pc, you HAVE to upgrade several parts, modify the settings, apply changes at your own leisure with every new update that comes along. that's so last gen!

but with macs, when its outdated, you just throw it in the garbage and buy the new one that comes out for $1500+

so convinient!
