Might as well get it started. What do you HATE about the MacBook Air?

I'll start:

It doesn't have 8 cores.
It doesn't have FW1600
It ONLY has a 60GB hard drive
It doesn't have an optical drive
I HATE the glossy screen ARG!!!
It's TOO fragile, it's gonna break SO easily

From the pictures its too thin and looks waaay too fragile. It also doesn't look like it'll be able to do any serious computing as it would likely sport a ULV processor etc.

In which case the question becomes whats the point?. Just build a UMPC Apple Style...10" screen multitouch that can connect to a BT keyboard etc

If this is indeed a computer: First off, GAY NAME!!! Too fragile, no processing power. And design doesnt fit the apple profile, that is if the sketchup on the main page is correct, It looks nice but it reminds me of a dell.

it hasnt even been released yet! wait until after macworld until complaining about at product that may not even be released tomorrow.

also 8 cores? mac notebooks dont even have quad cores yet. why could they skip 4 cores suddenly?

also im sure Johnny Ive will figure out a way to make a macbook super thin and not be susceptible to breakage. thsi will be one of Steve's punch lines.

I cut my finger on the box while opening my MacBook Air. I guess I'll return it.

How can a design so simple and clean be described with a word like "fugly"?

It doesn't have 8 cores.


What did you expect?


It ONLY has a 60GB hard drive


Upgrade options are cheap


It doesn't have an optical drive


Who uses one, anyway?


I HATE the glossy screen ARG!!!


Glossy gives better color than matte


It's TOO fragile, it's gonna break SO easily
No it doesn't. Just look at the MBA torture test. It survived being dropped from the car while it's running, A 6 foot drop, Intense heat and being frozen in the refrigerator.
