Apple Like an anorexic fashion model, Apple's new super-thin MacBook Air has made too many compromises for the sake of being skinny. With such emaciated specs, many are asking: who would buy it?

If I had the cash, the Macbook Air would definitely be mine. It is a "dead sexy machine" as a previous commenter pointed out.

Yeah, I was disappointed that the processor was a little low at 1.6 Ghz. The SSD drive is also super expensive. But, I haven't been enamored (for a while anyway) on any Windows laptops available. They tend to offer all these seemingly cool features (flash card readers? rs232 ports? ugly vga ports?) - that end up just being annoyances. I'd prefer a machine that just worked and looked good. Looks like the Macbook Air has those two things going for it - looks + Leopard.

Plus, the Macbook Air would be perfect to take advantage of the new Time Capsule and AppleTV - why store all that video and music on the MBA anyway?

This is the way computers are moving - less cables all around please.
