Also I understand if they make a different model like this (like the macbook air) but it should only be a model, there should also be a version with those things.

You're not the target audience for that kind of computer. They're streamlined for these guys.

Yeah I could do without ethernet and a CD drive, pretty sure most people who use macs use wifi only. I'd love to hate apple with all of you but I've loved my macbook for the past 4 years, and every time i switch out of an iphone i get fucked over by a shitty blackberry/android/htc phone and end up running back. What's everybody's problem with the apple store? whenever i have an iphone issue they get to me in 10 minutes and just give me a new phone. Maybe its just your apple store? (also there's an apple store a 5 minute walk from ATT so i dont mind)

Apple used to be primarily hipster, but I haven't run into an apple shit head in years, they know the products are overpriced but they love them anyways.

Don't worry, once you get that job you'll be a hipster in less than 3 months.

Like I said I understand that people may not use those things but that is what the Macbook Air is for, exchanging features for a thinner laptop. I don't have a problem with an option to not have those things but I'm saying that if the only option is to have less features and you can't get this same model (that is apparently 17% faster than the old one or something) with the option for ethernet and cds then I am against this. In my dorm room I had my laptop connected to the internet via ethernet cable basically 8 months straight. The only way you could download TV/Movies through our campus P2P program was to be plugged in through ethernet and I used that a ton.

You should probably just get a PC.

I know and I personally am not interested in a Mac anyways but this seems like a shitty move for people who would like this features and are Mac users.

Apple's headphones are terrible. You should be using an after market one.

well i usually use the bulky headphones, but i already have like 4 or 5 apple ones, but only one of the apple ones that is long enough. So i always end up mucking myself by bringing the short one.

I used Apple headphones for years until I broke my pair and I got some Sony in ear ear buds for like half the price that are substantially better.

nick, you've got it all wrong. removing things like disc drives or ether net ports is an upgrade. well i mean its an upgrade for apple. they take that shit out, cut the bottom line, and yet still charge you the same price. unfortunately, that's not an entirely apple's fault. that's business at large.

however, stripping features out and calling it innovative and user friendly is all apple.

also, mac's do have anti virus software and they do indeed get viruses. my old work computer had anti-virus software on it. in fact a nasty one was going around maybe a few weeks ago that wiped people's shit out. clearly, you're getting a taste of apple-tards possibly at school? i feel for you and understand your pain. know that you are not alone hah

I'm completely fine with people who own apple products and enjoy them, I'm just not that big on the business practices, although from a sales perspective they're genius. I just hate the Mac users who bring up the same shit over and over. Like I never come out shit talking Macs, it's always the Mac user who brings up shit about how great it is and they frequently say the same shit and are shocked that you are uninterested in purchasing a Mac.

I love iPods and the iPhone seems fine but with the iPhone it's almost like people scoff at you for having a Blackberry. I'm sorry I have more people I want to talk to on BBM vs iMessage, I prefer having actual keys on my phone and I prefer the BB version of Twitter. I have a preference but I'm not going "Ewww you bought an iPhone". Look the iPhone is fine. I prefer the Browser, TSN app and FB app on it as well as youtube although I don't use Youtube often with 3G. The only serious issue I have is the touch screen typing with no other option. If it had both touch and physical keys (kind of like a BB Torch) I actually might buy one. It's fine to fire off a quick response of a few words but I do not like typing up paragraph-like texts (Which I do send) or larger BBM messages with touch. I know people say you get used to it but I have an iPod Touch and I have used it with wi-fi a decent amount and I never got used to the touch typing.

Yeah, I don't understand why you're trying to justify your stance to us. Just go tell those ass clowns to F off.

I read some of my earlier posts and they sounded anti-Apple/Apple fans so I just wanted to clarify where I stand.

Exactly man. If I try something and like it better than I'm using I'll switch (assuming I can afford it). I switched from a Rio Nitrus to a 30 GB iPod Video and since then I have stuck with Apple for my portable music needs (I went from video to the 4th gen Nano to a 64GB touch).
