    As we all know, there are many people who have decided that they hate the Macbook Air and that all people who buy it are dumb and have wasted their money. What I didn't know until a few minutes ago was that there is a group (or at least one) of these people who have decided that they need to go out of their way to tell others that they have wasted their money...

    Now, I don't know how old this person is, or what they thought they were going to accomplish, or even how they got my AIM ID (although it is on here, read into that what you want) but I just had the most amusing exchange and thought I would post it for your entertainment. :)

    Them:
    ...
    you have a macbook air?

    Me:
    yes

    Them:
    ...
    *sigh*
    what a waste of money

    Me:
    Who are you?

    Them:
    you messaged me a while ago

    Me:
    I did...

    Them:
    don't remember for what, tohugh
    though*

    Me:
    Sorry, I don't remember either. So did you just message me to say I wasted my money?

    Them:
    mmm
    yes

    Me:
    And when was the last time someone told you to mind your own business? This computer works great for me, and *NEWS FLASH* its my money. I appreciate that you don't like the AIR and that it might not be the right computer for you, but seriously, grow up.

    Them:
    Sorry, last time I checked, I can talk to and tell anyone anything I want.

    Me:
    How old are you?

    Them:
    You could've invested in a computer $200 more expensive that could work multiple times faster.
    and better.
    And have a bigger screen...
    And have more ports.
    And have longer battery life
    And have a user replaceable battery.
    And have user replaceable RAM.
    The list goes on and on.

    Me:
    And weigh 2 pounds more

    Them:
    Holy ****

    Me:
    and take up more room in my bag

    Them:
    your arms are going to snap off.

    Me:
    seriously how old are you?

    Them:
    Old enough
    You asked me if I messaged you to tell you it was a waste of money.
    I said yes.
    you didn't ask me if I messaged you to get into an argument.

    Me:
    I don't need a work horse, but i would like a computer that is lighter, takes less room in my bag, and can still do everything I need to do with ease. The air does that for me.

    Them:
    I never intended to get into an argument.

    Me:
    Then what did you intend to do?

    Them:
    Simply tell you it was a waste of money.
    Then, you decided to make me 12 years old and tell me to grow up.
    But anyway.
    Have fun when you need a new battery.

    Me:
    You are acting 12 years old. When someone I don't know messages me and tells me I wasted my money I have a right to get offended
    Now, get on with your bad self and go talk to someone else please

    Them:
    Right.
    Have fun.





    I was sufficiently amused, and yes, a little irritated, but I really wanted to know how old they are...

    That's just sad. I personally am a little bit opposed to the MBA but that's just because I need to do a lot of video editing and the MBA does not fit my needs. But I would never go out of my way to insult someone and tell them that they have wasted their money on something that is important to them. Seriously. That person/group of people needs to grow up.

    LOL, That's good.

    My thoughts exactly, I get that it isn't right for everyone and that some people are upset that they didn't get a "true" ultra portable, but seriously, come one now...

    Another reason why the majority of online messenger services are used by freaks, geeks and the immature....

    (I'm not say you're one, and sorry if this post is interpreted like that)

    Haha someone seriously has nothing better to do with their time.

    Sure the MBAir isn't the most functional computer, but what ultra portable is? Had they thrown either 1 more USB port + Ethernet or 2 more USB ports for a total of 3 I'd be all over that thing.

    Just ignore him. They're obviously a loser.
