MacBook Air – Hit or Miss?

Macboo Air - Thinnovation

I’ve been thinking about this new laptop and I dunno if it’s what the industry needs right now…

Who is Apple’s target market? Let’s start with students, this definitely not for them! Compared with the Macbook, this one has no CD drive (most widely used hard media in school), wired connection deficient (Only one USB port and no ethernet), slower processor and its $300 more! How about the prosumers, again not for them! For most of the same reasons as students.

I mean if they are trying to break into the Ultra Mobile PC market this missed by about 6 or 7 inches. Size matters in that department, not only thickness and weight, length and width too. I really thought with Apple’s knack in UI, they could have fixed many of todays UMPC shortcomings! Maybe that’s the iPhone already but what is this one for? Some rich writer who just has to have the latest and greatest?

My Verdict is: This is an air ball of a  MISS!

What do you think? Look at it here.

    I think this will be a hit with people that just need a light sexy notebook for writing and internet. Wifi is fine. I don’t remember the last time I hooked my macbook up to Ethernet. But it is disappointing when you compare this years products to the buzz of the iPhone in 07. Apple is a victim of their own success.

    get a grip.

    Just one usb slot? So what.

    No ethernet port? There is an adapter.

    No optical drive? There’s a dedicated drive you can buy.

    Expensive? Yep. But not terribly out of reach. Compare to a Laica M8 with an apocromatic lens… This beauty comes cheap.
