  • I haven't perused this particular group for very long, but I get a distinct sense that Beeblebrox has a bone to pick with Apple (lost stock options perhaps?) Certainly any feedback, positive or negative, is essential & welcome for proper dialogue. But your constant accusations that Apple users are "exceedinlgy gullible to everything Jobs tells you" is equally balanced by your obvious biased distaste for everything coming out of Cupertino. Once again, challenges to users' comments are certainly welcome, but do they need to keep on taking the form of personal attacks? P.S. -- I also can see many potential drawbacks of the MacBook Air design, but that shouldn't necessarily take away from its promising aspects. I also don't feel a strong need to belittle those who may have similar nice things to say.

    The MacBook Air Is a Sign of Things to Come
  • Nice discussion...I often get a chuckle on the perceived personal attacks that participants misinterpret in these threads. Obviously, the reviewer feels that this new device is not suitable for his personal needs & has felt the urge to voice this as a vendetta against the product. I, for one, am excited about the Macbook Air. I currently own & use an up-to-date Macbook Pro as my primary computer & I love it -- it is powerful & sleek, although not without its negatives. We also have a newer iMac at home, & that machine has served well for "desktop needs". Obviously the new Macbook Air has shortcomings, but for some people (like myself) who've longed for a moderately powerful notebook (made by Apple) that is both sleek and portable, it will fill a void very nicely. There will always be users who need more (or less) out of their laptop & for these people it will prove inadequate. But to say that it is unequivocally a "horrible, horrible product" is simply poor & biased journalism. I welcome the daggers ;)
