Just curious if the price would change people's attitudes/minds towards this computer.
You better believe it ....
This makes the assumption that most won't buy it for $1799 and don't like it priced as such. I think that assumption is faulty.
It is well priced in its market (sorry, but this isn't an EEE). It's market is going to really appreciate it.
If you travel and need to be connected, this is a great machine.
no. it still wouldn't have the features that i wanted (larger and faster HD, superdrive)
No, i wouldn't use it ever...
i think alotta people would go for it then....but apple have put so much design and development into it. and intels input in shrinking the processor size. they are reflecting it in the price
i would think about it for sure..
Is someone telling little fibs?
I know a ton of people that want it at $1799!
I wouldn't get one only because I need some graphics in my laptop. The regular Macbook didn't cut it for me graphics-wise.
Still a damn solid laptop though- and I do want one- I just don't need one.
In a heart beat
No, because I simply don't have a need for such a laptop.
If the RAM, HD and battery were user replaceable I'd buy one at the educ discount ($1699).
But it will blow the doors off of what you are using now, a 12" PB with 768MB of RAM. And yes, I don't mean outperform. I mean blow the friggin' doors off.
Yea, but Apple has $15 billion sitting around in cash. I'm no expert, but imagine the hype and excitement they could have caused with better pricing (unbelievable pricing) I think volume sales would have eventually allowed them to break even/make a profit, but more importantly being able to brag that they sold x million units in the first 90 days...most successful notebook launch ever. I hope I eat my words, but if Apple was disappointed with selling 7 million movies, they will hate the number of sales on this thing. Well they might pull an iPhone on us too and drop the price $500 in 2 months...
And if a Lotus Elise was $19k, I'd get one of those too.
i see exactly what you mean Pandaboots, i am just trying to justify the price of it in my head. and to me thats all you are paying for, the development.
because I don't need it.
If I needed something like that I would pay the price it costs now, 999 euro is to cheap.
If it has the same specs as the $1799 model then duh...but at $999 it's next to impossible Apple would be willing so the specs would be majorly nerfed
Probably...I'm still put off by the lack of a disc drive and the small amount of ports.
I would hate to retire a perfectly good MacBook but I think $1000 would be a steal. I paid mare than that for my MacBook with a 60GB HD and 512MB RAM with Tiger.
Okay, and lets come back from our trip to mars!
For that price, I would buy it just for the sake of it. $999 would make it cheaper than the cheapest MacBook
people who need the portability, and can forgive the shortcomings of the MBAir will buy it at 1,799.
those who can't, won't buy it at 999.
