    crappy wedge design.
    no IR sensor for presentations.
    no backlit keyboard.
    no 4GB ram standard.

    this is like Apple saying "here's your cheap ass Air,jerk!"


    and btw i'm a very light user i don't expect i7 on Macbook Air but but let's face it this update is a big let down.

    Then don't buy it! Go buy at 13" mbp or go and buy a thinkpad x301. Also if your such a light user then what would you need 4gb of ram standard for since you wouldn't be heavily multi tasking. If you don't want to go cheap then max it out.

    Did we seriously need another thread like this? Go find another thread about discourse of the MBA and post in there.

    Well then do not buy the new air that simple right!? Get something for your needs.

    What exactly is the point of this post? Oh you don't like this? Thanks for the information. Now I can sleep tonight. These threads are mostly for people who purchase, use, or are interested in these products.

    Go to Best Buy and get an ASSSUUUUSSS EEEEEEEEEEEE thing.

    It can't please everyone. It's not that hard to understand. There are other laptops that may satisfy your needs better than the MBA

    oh you guys replying to the OP are just APPLE fan boy willing to buy anything apple makes.:D

    but seriously

    if a computer doesn't have something you need don't buy it and look for something that does meet your needs.

    I thought this was a very very stupid thread as well!! Makes me angry to see whiners here I am a female and half of these men on here whine more than I do!!! NOT being mean just saying. So if you are not BARBIE and do not want the MBA you can sure as hell take my Dell Mini it sucks compared to the MBA BY FAR!! So if you do not have anything to say that doesnt pertain to purchasing or what you like about the MBA then go else where please.

    FAIL. 4gb is optional.

    If you want a MBP get a MBP.

    and 16:9 on a 11 inch display? you gotta be kidding me! it's too damn wide! and the wedge design is the most awful thing Apple has done to the unibody design and it looks like the upcoming Macbook pros are going to have the same crappy wedge design yikes!

    i'm so disappointed because i consider myself one of the target audience for the Air...i'm not your typical MBP enthusiast who complains about how weak the Air is compared to the MBP, i have defended the Air ever since it was released...but let's just face it,Apple got it wrong this time..

    I think we are long over due for a global crisis to put things into perspective! It is what it is, if you don't like it, don't buy it.

    I myself am quite happy I have the opportunity and finances to make a decision whether to buy one of these little macbook airs or not.

    Many folks out there in the world right now are wondering how they will feed their kids tonight or if they will have their home foreclosed on. Yet here we sit in a collective bitch and moan fest about hardware specs. It is just a computer, take it for what it is and go out and enjoy the world around you.

    Reality check time!

    Right now there is really nothing you can do about 16:9 displays as that is becoming more and more the standard in the market. When the market moved from 4:3 displays to 16:10 displays you say the same exact complaints. Some people are never going to be happy. I went from a first gen MBP(which I think might be 16:10) to a 11in Vaio TT and I had no problems at all with the 16:9 resolution, it does everything I ask for, and viewing webpages for me isn't a problem at all.

    Probably, but you'll look more of a fool this way.
