Apple So, Apple held its usual autumn press get-together just now, and after a few rather uninspiring ones (to me, at least), they finally managed to blow me away, with the new MacBook Air (especially the 11.6" variant). They also gave a sneak peek at Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, which has... An App Store. An App Store Apple is going to open on Snow Leopard within 90 days.

Apple translation:

Netbooks are too cheap
...

Here's a $1000 netbook.

I had no idea Apple was using the Intel Atom and a POS GPGPU in their Ultra-portable.

I agree with your sarcasm. ;)

I would like someone to point out to me the $300-$400 netbook that has SSD, 320M graphics, Core 2 Duo processor, and up to 4GB of RAM configurable.

Hmmm........

Yes, it's the size of a netbook (actually, it's smaller). It's just not an utter piece of shit like 90% of the netbooks out there, and is actually usable.
