    Now - only if ALL of the people on this forum with that hinge problem would make a similar video - maybe you'll get Apple's attention....

    Same with the people with the line issue....

    Okay,

    I understand being frustrated with a problem product. ( Explains me owning only computers that run OS X or Linux ).

    But if you take a $1800 laptop and destroy it for something that CAN be repaired, well, you're either very very wealthy, or very very stupid.

    I think HE's got a little problem being unhinged.

    Look at how smooth and steady and really lovely to look at is the air's screen and how horribly the ibm's flickers...

    Shame, it was a bloody good coffee.

    I know! The whole time I was cringing thinking, "this is it, this is it!". What a stupid man.

    Another piece of evidence of humans with more money than brains... or more SOMETHING than brains. I mean, I had to fix the hinges on my old Dell... I didn't stab it - I bought a hinge kit for like $40 and fixed it. *sigh* Some people will never learn... :D

    I am totally with applecultvictim.
    Behold the great display of the MBA, which doesn't flicker when taped with a video camera. In sharp contrast to the rather trashy Lenovo screen.
    Plus the MBA can endure 2 knife stabs in the face until it bleeds! Maybe that is the computer the Navy Seals should look into..

    By the by: the dude is stupid :)

    It's funny buddy how when they are trying to diss apple products they end up making fools of themselves instead, same with the ms anti apple ads where they have these poor people buying trash instead of apple products for the supposed "value" of pcs. And you take one look at apple's hardware (irregardless of the issues these might be facing too, they are machines after all, not infallible) and specs and then another at the competition and you cringe. By the looks of this dude though he sure deserves the flickering lenovo.
