    I personally hate the name "MacBook Air." So what's your opinion on the name?

    I think it's fine, and has grown on me the past few days.

    Will be strengthened if there's justification in the product spec, i.e. completely wireless.

    If it's just a lightweight MacBook, I would prefer MacBook Nano.

    I think the name is terrible but if its an amazing product they can call it whatever they want.

    I'll have to see the thing first it could go either way for me

    Can you pump it up?

    Sounds like an athletic shoe to me. Maybe I lack vision, but I'd have no use for such a device, but it is cool that apple is capable of such a thing. When solid state gets up to 160G, then I'll pay attention.

    Well Apple and Nike DO have a good working agreement...

    I'm afraid it's grown on me over the last couple of days so I don't really mind what it's called as long as it's ultraportable. :D

    dose anyone remember apple's patent to build cell cards and receivers into the back of a monitor in a laptop to reduce RF interference.

    I think it's a beautiful name! :) No negative connotations for me, it sounds clean and pure and simple. :cool::apple::D

    I've heard worse...

    If it's a real product and an actual name, it will grow on us and we'll come to love it.

    I seem to recall a bunch of complaining when Apple went to the MacBook and MacBook Pro names. But we're all used to it now. I'm not worried.

    EDIT: ^^^^^^^^^ Yes, exactly ^^^^^^^^^ Pretty much everyone likes MB and MBP now because they are pretty nice machines...

    The name doesn't matter much; it's all about what it can let me do.

    Exactly. They can call it MacBook Turd for all I care. If it's a great product, it will sell well.

    I loathe it. And you may have noticed that it rhymes with VAPORWARE.

    In what language? If it was the "Mayp or Fair", you might have had something.

    :)

    Might as well call it the "MacBook Crap"




    ...incase you didnt get that, I think the name sucks:rolleyes:

    yeah i hate it too, and for that reason believe that the rumoured notebook will NOT be called "macbook air"...just doesnt go with the other mac-endings (pro,mini,nano,classic,etc)

    I don't get it when people use the argument that it doesn't follow existing product naming rules - Apple is about innovation, right?

    It sounds perfectly plausible to me. :)

    Maybe Apple aren't releasing a MacBook Air? Maybe the "There's something in the air" refers to Apple iTunes Rentals and the new sub-notebook will be called MacBook nano. The new updated Mac mini is to be relaunched as a Mac nano just like the iPod mini was. Just a suggestion. ;)

    Yep at first I thought sounded kind of silly but now I've grown to like it. I could definitly see Apple using the name.
