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?

As with much of Apple's mystique, it's an image thing. The young hip guy in the Mac commercials pretty well sums up what they're going for. Maybe the quality is good. But I'd as soon have 2 Compaqs as one of these. Maybe I'm just too old to be young and hip? ;-)

Agreed on the limited value of slim. By the time you pack it up well enough and with the rest of your gear, you'd likely never notice the difference.

Well, Apple seams to do stuff only because they CAN. They always want to do the smallest stuff (like MacMini and so on), only to prove they CAN. But not because it's highly desirable ;)
