The Telegraph reviews Apple’s MacBook Air: Size matters

“I don’t care what any one tells you: size matters,” Claudine Beaumont reports for The Telegraph. “And never more so than with technology, which is why Apple’s new MacBook Air, the world’s thinnest laptop, has proved such a crowd pleaser in the Telegraph office this week.”

“The diminutive notebook computer, which measures less than 2cm at its thickest point, is certainly a looker,” Beaumont reports. “Its sleek, brushed aluminium styling bears all the hallmarks of Apple’s reputation for careful design, but it’s more than just a pretty face.”

“We’ve been putting the Air through its paces for the last few days to see whether it’s hot stuff or simply hot air,” Beaumont reports.

MacDailyNews Take: If we have to hear another Luddite complaining that they can’t play DVDs on MacBook Air…

[Thanks to MacDailyNews Reader “Macaday” for the heads up.]


  1. That guy in the vid is a TOOL! Let’s just say that the Air DID have a magic, weightless, DVD drive. He’d rather carry 60 DVDs than have 60 movies Ripped to his drive?!?

    His other complaint – a dealbreaker!?! – is no Ethernet. He believes it’s wrong for Apple to assume that he has WiFi. What an AssHat!

    Then he says that, for the money, this Ultraportable should be able to double as a primary desktop.

    The idiocy is unbelievable.

  2. Whose doing those Obama placements displayed on MDN. whether you are a supporter or not, from a total concept design point of view they are really, really good. They give me, an old glazed-over designer, whom has worked on campaign stuff over the years, the warm fuzzies. I will have to find out who they are.

  3. I wish I could see one.
    Every time I get to the store here in Vancouver, they have had some in stock and sold them right away.

    Something like 400 have hit Vancouver stores so far and within minutes – all sold.
