Apple is Overpriced...Shocker

Recently Apple announced it new Mac Book Air. For those that don't know the Air has a 1.4 GHz processor with an 11.6 inch screen, for only $999 which can be yours for a generous donation of $999 to the Make Adequate Computers foundation (AKA MAC). These should be the specs of a Netbook but yet the Air cannot be used as such. I'm not saying a laptop that weighs only 2.3 pounds is not awesome but honestly who would use is. There is no cd player, only uses usb 2.0 and no eSATA or firewire. This sounds alot like a phone, so lets compare.

*All phone stats will be overclocked speeds.

T-Mobile G2 by Htc
OC at 1.42 Ghz

Macbook Air

Samsung Galaxy S
OC at 1.3Ghz

The Air is rocking a Wireless G compatibility along with Bluetooth 2.1 which is compatible with the G2 while the Galaxy S uses wireless N and Bluetooh 3.0. Like the Air the Galaxy S also has HD video out and a front facing Camera along with a normal one.

Basically Apple has put the specs of and android phone into a laptop and doubled the price, it is beyond me how they will sell.

If you want a netbook, go with an HP running Windows 7, if you want an expensive mini-laptop go to Dell and customize one that will have double the specs the Air does. Honestly their is no reason to purchase an Air.
