So here’s an ad for the Lenovo X300. I’ll wait here patiently while you watch it.
“No compromises.” Except for industrial design, screen, keyboard, and operating system. It does have features you always need on an airplane — like multiple USB ports and an optical drive. Oh wait, I use at most one USB device on my laptop except for at home (where I run it lid down with a Mac keyboard, which works as a USB hub because Apple isn’t retarded). And I avoid even putting CDs or DVDs in a laptop in transit to save battery power.
I don’t own an Air, and probably never will, but I understand exactly why some people would want one, oh and yeah, it’s still the top selling piece of hardware at apple.com/store (ahead of entire categories of other Macs).
