I don't know anything about anything but is Core M that much better than the i5 on the air?

Does it bend on keystroke?

>Apple doesn’t specifically address the logo, but with the tight constraints on both thickness and battery life – Apple needs to get 9+ hours off of a 39.7Wh battery driving a 12” Retina display – I suspect Apple finally sacrificed the logo to further save on power.

This is bullshit, the logo on the other laptops is lit up by the same LEDs that light up the display backlight.

how is that fucking bezel acceptable

Seconding this point

Did you seriously just screenshot a comment that you disagreed with and then post it here for validation?

Apple should stick to white, grey/black is for windows

To be fair I also have a four year old MBA and literally only noticed this two days ago.
>>
>>47519244
People who want glowing manufacturer logos on their devices should seriously be euthanized.
>>
>>47519297
I've used Apple laptops with that type of lid for years and didn't notice it until someone pointed it out a few months ago.
>>
>>47519259
the one on the air is far worse

silver abomination ruining any semblance of design
>>
Dell XPS 13 is better than this fad in any perceivable way. Now that there is an official Linux version available, too, there is literally not a single argument you have for picking the Air over the XPS 13.

>>47522242
I never said I wanted it, I just pointed out a factual error in the review.

Since battery life wasn't the reason for Apple to remove the glowing, perhaps it means they're getting a bit of sense.

The MacBook is their general notebook, the Air is their ultraportable

/g/ has to be filled with women because so many people here shill macs
>>
>>47522358
I never said you wanted it either.
It's just that the bit you quoted shows there's apparently a considerable number of people upset that their new device is not made to be an advertisement billboard.
>>

LET OUR FRAMERATES BE HIGH AND OUR LATENCY BE LOW!!!!!!! preach!

Where is the trackpoint?

Well not this generation it isn't.
>>
>>47522478
That's not your decision.
>>
>>47522503
That's not a decision at all.
That's an observation.
The macbook is lighter and thinner at the expense of performance and connectivity.
This makes it the ultraportable.
>>
>>47522541
No, the MacBook Air is their ultraportable, it just hasn't been updated yet.

I must be the only person that misses the old plastic Macbook and prefers plastic over muh aluminium unibody and glass.
>>
>>47522632
It was updated a month ago.
>>
>>47522674
You're not alone. A lot of people miss the old MacBook, and the older apple products, from before everything was sterile milled aluminum. Back when there was some joy in their world, and not just obscene profits.
>>
>>47522632
How would they make it significantly thinner than the macbook anyway?
They'd have to ditch the physical keyboard and ports altogether at which point they might as well put an Atom chip in an ipad and ship it with OS X.
>>

An iPhone colour computer with the same number of ports as a iPhone is genius. It's an iPhone computer!

That would be the answer to the Surface, and sell obscenely well.

Not good enough. It needs to be ARM iOS with an OS X interface or an ARM port of OS X with an X86 emulator. Intel requires too much energy for portable devices.
>>
>>47522674
I've seen a few white plastic macbooks, and all had two things in common. And that was that the plastic broke and they turned yellow. The black only has one of those problems.

>Intel requires too much energy for portable devices.
Plenty of Atom powered Windows 8.1 tablets have come out recently.
Yeah they're still not as efficient as ARM, but one more architecture iteration and maybe one more process shrink and the difference will be negligible.

Doesn't run OS X.
>>
>>47524437
What software can OSX run that Windows can't?
>inb4 some basic default utility
>>
>>47524580
Who said anything about exclusive software?
It's all about the trackpad gestures, *nix base and overall nice to use system.
Far less issues than Linux and Windows while being far more flexible than Windows.
>>
>>47518951
It's far worse, actually.
