Well, it didn"t take long for the MacBook Air jokes to start flying, did it. On the other hand, this ad has good points.

This comp looks pointless. I see them breaking constantly. If I traveled alot, I would never carry something like this with me, it`d probably get messed up in the airport. I dislike macs, I find them much less reliable than pcs, an I hate ipods. Every person I know has problems with theirs, and two of my friends have already had to return them for new ones after having them for less than a year. And Apple customer service sucks.

macbook air, for people who just want something that`s super portable, packs a punch and doesn`t quit on u, plain and simple... it`s not for everyone, like me for example i wouldn`t need such a machine but that doesn`t mean i can`t appreciate it for what it is, you people should try OBJECTIVE thinking it`s a really nice approach to life...

When I worked at Apple we had a joke... its based on the old Ford commercial "quality is job one"

At Apple Quality is Job 1.1.1

The point is that you should never buy an Apple 1.0 product. Their rev A`s almost always have problems. But by rev C, they are the best machines on the planet.

Comparison/contrast with Micro$oft where Quality is job 3, service pack 2

"Okay, how many of you idiots actually OWN iPods?"

I own an iRiver H10 20gb.
At the time it went on the market, It was selling at the same price as an iPod. But, the iPod lacked these features:

Colour Screen
Intergrated mic
FM Radio
Fm radio Recorder
Image vieewer

Of course, you could Buy a Radio tuner for your iPod for an extra 70$ (CND) or a Mic, nothing came intergrated.

Oh, and i don`t abse the fact that it is a POS base don the link, The links support my argument that it is A POS.

I seriously wait in anticipation for release of the product to the general public where we`ll get to see all those little hidden surprises which I love to hear about.

I dislike Macs based on a combination of the people who use them and the machines themselves. My graphic arts teacher uses macs and he is the most smug, pleased-with-himself-arrogant d-bag I`ve ever met. And the Macs themselves are the most useless things ever created by mankind. I don`t really need my computer to be inside my monitor, and the term "user friendly" just means that it assumes that whoever uses it is an idiot and/or has the same personality as my aforementioned graphic arts teacher.

First of all, i`m not pissed. Read up, I`m using "mactard" because I found it funny. It`s like Calling my mexican Friend a Pendejo. And there is nothing which can get somone pissed faster then saying "you are pissed"

Second of all:
hmm, it does have WiFi without the box. I was wrong about that.
Still Doesn`t Mean it isn`t a POS.

Koala, wow..cool it. Got something stuck up your butt don`t ya there? Your acting like Apple is trying to shove this down your throat and you`re not gonna have it! If you don`t like it, don`t buy it. It`s obviously not intended for people like you.

It has WiFi internet capabilitie, i don`t know where you got the information that it doesn`t. lol Cuz that`s a straight up lie! :D

I know several people who have already pre-ordered one. You know why? Because they have a full sized desktop at home but want something that small and easy to travel with but that is still powerful enough to get them through 80% of their computing needs.

what is the purpose of technology? why do we continually push on trying 2 make it `better`? isn`t it supposed to fit seamlessly into our lives almost as if it were not there at all while providing all of the benefits and comforts that we expect from it? if yes then i believe that apple is on the right track wit making easy to use, good looking, intuitive products... if something has to be a part of my everyday lifestyle i think it should look good, perform well and i should have to think about it too much it should just work the way dat i want it to, in a way that feels natural to me...
btw to all you other geeks out there, i`m a mac, what are you??? lol!

" A lot of people think an Ipod is totally different from an mp3 player." - Spaminator

An iPod isn`t an mp3 player. And that`s one of the many reasons it sucks. When you add a sound file to the iPod it gets converted into its own format.

I prefer an mp3 player that works essentially as an external hard drive with a headphone port.

So in our quest for miniaturisation, we`ve designed a computer that`s too small to take a cd/dvd drive. Genius, that said, I`m sure USB sticks will eventually replace discs, but it`ll be a while yet. Why do designers and engineers need to constantly make things smaller? My phone currently has much more computing power than NASA had when they put someone on the moon. Why can`t we start making things better in another way? Efficiency? Connectivity? Or design something entirely new? Oh well, rant over...

Wait, i`m not going to leave that to chance. I`m not even going toa sk that.
The Product is a compleat waste of money. No one in their Right drating minds would buy this Compleat absolute piece of Fu¢king poo !!!

Buying this makes you a Compleat Shallow Moron. A moron who doesn`t even realize they have wasted money "Oh but I`m rich" Grats, you`re still a moron, and you still own a Computer which doesn`t do poo.

People saying "oh but Macs are very good for a multidue of tasks, such as Video Editing"

ROFL - you`re not going to be editing much of anything, be it music, video or otherwise on that crap. It`s so Impracticle.

"I think it`s funny that you PCers keep on making fun of this. I`m not going out and buying the computer, but I know that pcs are going to be coming out with the same thing. And as for the not having a dvd drive, remember that mac was the first one to make a computer without a floppy drive and everyone said how stupid that was. now the general public would never need a computer with a floppy drive."

1) If a PC laptop comes out that is like this piece of crap, it will flop. Apple will sell tons of "Airs" because mactards will buy anything with an Apple logo on it.

2) Difference: Floppy drives were replaced by CD and DVD burners, and most especially now, memory cards and jump drives. Movies are still released in DVD format, music CDs are still in CD format. These formats will not be retired for some time.

3) Apple thought a one-button mouse was a good idea, too. Oh yeah, "oops".

AnwarNova: "Apples where the first to not used Floppies nymore, everyone called that stupid" ... "Its a specific produce for a specific audience of consumers: those of us who travel a lot and who don`t use CD/DVD`s anymore."

It has one, count them, One USB Port, no Firewire, no WiFi not server support or anything. Unless you purchase the Additional external harddrive for additional fees, which comes with a CD Drive.

Lets look at what you just said, you`re obviously implying that We`re not going to ned the External hard drive, or it won`t be purchased, or whatnot.

How are you going to update your Software? your OS? How are you going to surf the net? Congradualtions, you just bought a 3000$ Virtual Pen And paper. You can`t print or send anything out. unless you use a Flash Card, Transfer it onto ANOTHER computer which has access to the Net or a printer.

See the compleat total futality of the product?

Macs aren`t that special. In fact, it seems like Apple has made its fortune on selling gimmicks. The iPhone is nothing special, really. Wow, a phone that plays MP3s and surfs the web. That hasn`t been thought of before. Now we have this. Wow, a thin notebook. That hasn`t been done before.

Oh wait, it hasn`t. That`s because most people realize that having to lug around extra accessories to get BASIC FUNCTIONS is just flat out retarded.

The thing I dislike about Apple is how they have pretty much cornered the mp3 player market. A lot of people think an Ipod is totally different from an mp3 player.

Thats my hatred. oh, and the guys who think because they own macs they are the masters of technology!! UgH!!... BUT! I will admit they are reliable and i use a macbook and a ipod touch and they are quite charming. Fun, since i didnt have to pay for them or didnt have em long enough for one of those famous user exploits to come in efect.

They`re excellent machines for video editing, which is why a lot of movie producers use them, but they`re just not as versatile as PCs. The Mac is marketed for simplicity, and consequently you lose a lot of functionality in order to keep it simple enough for people with little to no computer knowledge to use.

Oh yeah, I`d never get a macbook air though. I live watching DVDs too much to have a laptop without a DVD drive. Plus I don`t need to keep my laptop in an envelope :) Just to clarify also, the 3000.00 model comes with a 64GB solid state drive, not a regular hard drive. You can get it with a reg hard drive and that takes the price down to 1799.

I`ve never owned any mac computers, but I must say that their iPods and especially my iPod touch is kicka$$. I also know people that own mac computers that love them and considering I am the guy everyone calls to fix thier computer and I have never had a friend need me to fix their mac, I must say that they are pretty reliable. It`s a good thing PCs are such pieces of garbage, or I`d be out of a job :-)

Also I want an OS that can actually be compatible with some of my software.You may mention parallels but doesn`t emulate 3D graphics drivers, also what`s the point of buying an OS and you have to use another one to run your programs.....it defeats the purpose.

"Mac`s are built as simple reliable computers for people who don’t know how to use computers, nothing wrong with it, but there isn`t that much right with it either."

People keep saying that. When I know several programming languages and I own a Mac. Just because its simpler to use doesn`t mean its only for people who don`t know how to use Macs.

And to OcelotUK, you have those same exact problems...with EVERY other computer brand. You just don`t hear about it as much.

to the_windy: If you had watched the Keynote, which you obviously haven`t you would know the Macbook air has 5+ hours of battery life and its lack of a CD/DVD drive is evidence that the product is not AIMED at the general public. Its a specific produce for a specific audience of consumers: those of us who travel a lot and who don`t use CD/DVD`s anymore.

gah, by no means assume that I actually like Macs or for that matter Apple. Both PC and mac unreliable as you said, was just giving a different perspective as to why people hate the Macs..

Apples persistently bad design choices, poor customer service and user exploitation make it a bad company.

Hmmm in preparation for an actual fan boy:

Bad Design choices: How many apple products have to be sent back to have simple things like batteries changed, or how many are chipped/damage in seconds due too poor paint.

Poor Customer Service: Having to pay again for apple to correct faults on there product due to bad design choices.

User Exploitation: everything Apple produces that has the tag First generation should be avoided, these products are buggy, faulty and used to test the market, if it proves profitable they remake the product with faults fixed and call it 2nd generation (see iPhone, iPod, iPod Shuffle, iPod nano…need I go on….ok I will…..Mac Book air)

I don’t think people actually hate Macs as a machine, it`s more to do with the way they`re marketed, all the adverts give the sense that they`re stuck way up their own ass (eg PC vs Mac ads, try and sell your product by pointing out flaws in others as opposed to listing what yours can do). The arrogant user base doesn`t help either, people who believe that they`ve bought more then a computer, they`ve bought a lifestyle, and by somehow owning a Mac they`ve joined some elitist club.... Mac`s are built as simple reliable computers for people who don’t know how to use computers, nothing wrong with it, but there isn`t that much right with it either.
