Personally I wouldn't touch either one with a 10 foot pole.....but that's just me. These ultra thing laptops are asking for RMA....

Apple did it first, its only natural for them to have some punches thrown at them that land a little hard .
ya, but thinner defeats the purpose when you don't have a cd/dvd drive

Also I prefer the looks of the envy to the MBA. The MBA looks like something a douchebag would flaunt at a Starbucks. "Liek omg you guys check out my Macbook air!" The Envy is more radical/contemporary all in one. Of course the MBA and really ANY mac doesn't match my style.

Also FYI Apple reps are complete tards. Really. We have one who comes in our store every other day and demo's the products and answers questions and he is such a douchebag. He bald, has horn rimmed glasses, and it completely clueless. He also lies to customers. You'd think he was working off commission. "Yes this $1800 iMac has the powerful high-end ATi 2600." I wanted to LOL really loud.

"Also FYI," all reps are complete ******* (wow, the word for "slow"/mentally challenged is censored? What the hell has happened to this forum?). Go to best buy and you'll find some too. Holy crap, man...

I work at best buy so I would know. None compare to this D-Bag. Also the people in our PC Department are atleast honest.

And who's hating on a company? I was merely commenting on the styling of the notebook. If that offends you then well too bad.

The apple reps do make commission. but since their product costs more, they are required to sell less in terms of laptops. If you compare the mark up of a mac book vs anothor laptop with the same specs, you can see there is a nice little mark up for apple reps to skim a bit off the top.

Why do you think they try to push .Mac so hard? They rather get a laptop with .Mac sold more then anything else.
