Would it be if the rumors and leaks are true?
A bit more nuanced options would have been nice
As it stands, "I live for the glow" but I do reckon that the majority won't really care.
Vanity thy name is fanboy!
It's really just yes no or maybe. The rest is not to be taken seriously
To me it would be a plus. The glowing apple is obnoxious.
Just put a glow in the dark sticker on it.
Why not just get a fake MBA that doesn't actually work but has a glowing Apple? If it's important to one, then that fulfills one's main requirement: pretentiousness.
Well, I'd cover it anyway. The actual is an "attention wh*re", and the black one would be a cheap-looking one. But if they do it black I hope it is for a good reason that "benefits" the user in some way (thinner display so thinner whole design, etc).
"I has no ideas" - wtf?
Not to mention a waste of power, even if it's minor.
It is just the screen backlight viewed from the other side. No extra power.
The glowing logo was a nice idea, but it has become a badge of pretentiousness. I won't miss it.
Laughs (at self). Good info, thanks. Assumed there was a dedicated LED lighting up the logo.
Seriously, those who would actually base their choice on that, have too much money for their own good.
I love the glow, but it's not going to be a deal breaker. I still intend on purchasing the computer.
Not to mention if you're in a lighting situation where sun is shining against the back of the laptop, the apple logo is visible on the screen. Annoying.
It is a nice, simple idea. The iMac doesn't have a glowing logo because the computer guts are in the way. A shame really as I would like to see a return to the G4 style iMac with the computing components in a base and the screen on an adjustable arm. More elegant and much more ergonomic.
Ergonomics are also important on the rumoured rMBA. A full size keyboard is more important than a glowing logo, as is a suitable number of ports (happy with the rumours about USB 3.1 replacing a lot, but there needs to be at least 3 of them, hopefully more).
(got sidetracked, tried to bring it back on track, hope nobody noticed)
Just think of all the duct tape that will be saved on those TV shows where they cover up that logo.
Not bothered about the logo at all. If I was to consider a MacBook Air I would only be bothered about the weight, size, CPU, RAM, and display. The things that matter in an ultra-portable laptop.
The light used for that apple logo is actually the same as the backlight for the screen, so the reality is that all apple screens have a very very slight lowering of their brightness in the shape of an apple right in the middle of their screens.This is of course imperceptible to the human eye, but to me it's an unnecessary embellishment on a laptop that otherwise values minimalism and functionality above all else. So to answer your question, it's far from a deal-breaker to me and I would actually prefer everything I own to be completely unbranded with no logos at all.
It's no big deal for me. See the positive side: battery saved!
one of the better arguments, indeed.
I really like the glow... But I would still buy it without it.
The glowing apple uses no power. As has been said, it's just the screen backlight, viewed from behind.
If it uses no power, why would they (allegedly) remove it?
Make it thinner, of course.
It would be said to see, but no worse then losing the happy mac at bootup. We all adjusted on that, so life goes on
