New MacBook Air - impressive? or simply overpriced?

The new MacBook Air really looks thin. Is it too thin and overpriced? Perhaps if you really need to keep up with all the latest "gadgets" that are out there, then you're the type of person who needs to get the newest MacBook Air. I still don't think it makes a lot of sense that you can't remove the battery if you run out of power. Maybe that's because I'm the type of person who's frequently swapping batteries on my laptop. I always travel with 2 batteries.

The new 11" MacBook Air looks really nice, but it's way overpriced at $999 for a super-slim netbook.

  1. I disagree. The Macbook Air isn't just good design, it is a fully functional laptop. The fact that it doesn't have a CD slot means very little to most people. What does matter is the 7hrs of battery life in real world conditions, the very light weight, the durability of SSD and Macbooks in general. I have the previous model and caryying my computer around all day is a chore and I can't wait to be able to leave my power cord in the car and only worry about 2lbs.
