    LOL At the sales pitch punch line:


    I am not sure if I should take that positively or negatively.

    Fake / knockoff netbook, not a clone in usability, speed, or features.

    Lol. It comes with XP with FlyakiteOSX (a mac theme) preinstalled. I wonder how many people will be fooled by this.

    Sure, you're free to buy cheap, knockoff crap.

    At least buy something THAT ISN'T FAKE. Like an Acer or Dell or whatever. The might be rather junky but at least they're not claiming to be something they clearly aren't.

    Be real.

    Take a look at the screenshot I posted. 1GB of RAM. 1.66GHz Atom. I wouldn't touch that today.

    :rolleyes:

    LOL "superstarfactory."

    Of course the price was "amazing." They're probably built like a Chinese motorcycle.

    Nah, I can tell on first glance that those computers are Winboxes.

    Probably, the same way you can with most other PCs. However it won't be the same, because it'll miss lots of Mac features. For example, by looking at that pic I can see that the MacBook Pro's trackpad isn't a replica of Apple's one. Its plastic, (not glass, so it won't feel as good and will wear out) it has two buttons instead of the Apple whole trackpad button thing (so probably no multi-touch). The body of the silver one looks pretty ******, I wouldn't be surprised if its made of plastic, and the keyboard looks windowish and its not built into the body.

    I really love how that MacBook Pro-like MacBook Air looks nothing like a MacBook Air. LOL

    I'm sorry but that's pretty ridiculous. I've never ever experienced a trackpad wearing out. How much does a person use one to wear it out? You would need sandpaper fingers to do that.

    Hilarious.

    Apple should buy all inventory and send one to every journalist along with new macs for review.

    Just to point out that there's more than a neat case inside.

    I apparently HAVE sandpaper fingers, every touchpad I used turned into some swishy, slimy, oily, perfectly smooth surface afeter a couple of years.
    Same for keyboards, all my keyboards have lost half of their letters.

    I have really abrasive sweat.

    Do you ever clean your keyboard/trackpad? I don't mean to offend you, I'm just wondering if maybe cleaning would preserve them.

    So, who's willing to bet that Windows XP registered to 'User' is genuine? :roll eyes:


    They're probably using the N270 atom w/ GMA 950 for graphics, so those would be very easy to install SL on.
