Who is the new Macbook geared towards? - according to an Apple chat. [start chat] Me:Who is the new Macbook geared towards? Rep:Do you mean the type of user or a person? Me: Type of user Rep:Ok Rep: New MacBook is a combination of a Mac and an iPad. It’s light, thin and compact product. At the same time it’s a full MacBook experience, with keyboard, touchpad and Retina display... Perfect for day-to-day tasks, internet browsing, mail, documents For studying or working on the go Me: As a student, I can't see myself plugging my USB flash drive or SD card in to it Rep:Do you mean flash storage? Me: Yes, a flash drive Rep: Ok Well, you can connect it using an additional cable. [end chat] I still don't understand who it's aimed towards. Perhaps the person who can handle a string of adapters, or mostly works online Hoping that this chat shines a light for some people who seem puzzled as to why Apple would release such a thing. EDIT: The new MacBook doesn't bother me in any way. It's a broad step in to the future of the notebook world. I understand why Apple made all those decisions - but some people seemed perplexed about the whole thing, so this thread is for them to see Apple's reasoning behind the creation of the device. Admittedly, its just one Apple rep's opinion so it should be taken with a grain of salt.
