    He's just jealous that:

    1. He can't afford it.
    2. He's too stupid to know its target market.

    The writer and article are being funded from Microsoft's $300 Million dollar ad campaign, can't you tell :eek:

    Wow, this guy has no common sense.
    He must really dislike Steve Jobs then.
    Wouldn't be surprised if Microsoft is behind this.

    On their articles that seem to be conflict of interest they say, "MSNBC is a joint venture of NBC and Microsoft." :D

    They are:
    Two partnerships with the name MSNBC were founded in 1996 by Microsoft and General Electric's NBC unit, which is now NBC Universal. Although Microsoft and NBC shared operations of MSNBC cable at its founding, it was announced on December 23, 2005, that NBC Universal would purchase a majority stake in the television network, which left Microsoft with 18%. The two companies remain 50-50 partners in msnbc.com. MSNBC, like sister channel CNBC, shares the NBC logo of a rainbow peacock.

    I posted this in repsonse...

    Quite frankly I own a first gen Air, and find that it was a sound purchase that I never once regretted. You on the other hand, are an ignorant ass, who either hates all things Apple (no loss there, but I would suggest you might stick to talking about things you actually use, or know something about about). Or, perhaps you can't afford the Air, and are upset it didn't hit your magic pricepoint of $399.

    I don't care what the tools I use make me look like, I didn't buy it to "look cool". It weighs next to nothing, and fits in my existing small attache. While it doesn't have an internal DVD (I never missed it), and has a limited number of ports, it is more than sufficient to power and run my Optoma HD projector I use for business meetings. Perhaps you are the sort of twit that chooses a laptop to look "cool" in Starbucks while working on some obviously very important and grand document, but that though never once occurred to me. Too cheap to pay the price? Head over to Amazon and you can find a brand new previous gen Air for $1149. Better yet, stick to writing about things you know about... otherwise you just sound like a pathetic trolls.
    cheers...

    I guess that means Olbermann and Matthews both have MacBook Airs.

    I infer from the fact that they say Linux is for Jerks as well (item 7/8) that I'm a Jerk and the Macbook Air must be the best laptop in the world.

    I'm a jerk and I really want one. There's some merit in the article.

    Ummm, by this reasoning I should just put myself out of my misery.:apple::apple::apple::apple::apple::apple::apple::apple::apple::apple::apple::p:apple::p;)











    Or get a couple more so I can be duly qualified in four years.
