So I'm an apple convert. My first laptop is MBA. I had it for six months and I'm completely happy with it. It replaced my sony vaio sz and it tops it performance and speed wise. When I bought it last march many people are against me on buying it (including apple employees in the apple store). But I still bought it because its right for my needs. I couldn't be happier with my purchase. However it puzzles me because everytime I visit the macforums outside of the Macbook air thread, many people bash the MBA calling it a "useless underpowered machine" or something similar along those lines. I don't understand why some other apple users themselves hate the MBA like it's kinda like the "black sheep" of the apple notebook lineup. Can anybody explain to me why this is the case?
