    700 quid for a netbook?? People, wake up!!!

    Netbooks don't have a Core i5 cpu - there is no real Windows competition for the Macbook Air laptops.

    It's not about comparison.
    It's simply whether this is the best deal for the product offered.
    I have no interest in the ramblings of non-Mac users as to whether this better than a PC. If you're not interested in a Mac - don't comment, go down to PC World and share your 'insight' with a sales assistant instead - I'm sure they will be as interested in your views on the Mac v PC debate as the rest of us!

    It's inevitable I'm afraid Nathe. I'm no fan of Apple, but even I can see the merits of a good comparable price.

    I don't agree. If I chew a piece of chewing gum and then offer the chewed remains on the www for £100,000, by your definition that would be a bargain because it's the only piece of chewing gum available that has been chewed by me. That's just taking your argument to its logical, but absurd, conclusion. So, yes, looking for bargains does definitely involve comparison with alternatives.

    I'd have to disagree with you. You need to compare the item price with its previously offered price and its current price at other retailers. If its cheaper on both counts, then it is a deal!

    It's irrelevant comparing this to anything other than its previous price and competitors pricing. Comparing prices of these Mac's to Windows PC's is like comparing bananas and oranges - they're different prices, always have been and always will be.

    So, my pre-chewed chewing gum is a bargain at £100,000? Despite the option of buying a new packet for a few pence and chewing it yourself?

    Chewy would have to be listed as used, so perhaps just a grand or 2 would be more realistic. Maybe more if it's refurbed but that would take some doing.

    I don't think comparisons are TOTALLY irrelevant as it depends if you want a mac for showing off or for a real reason. That's why - as I've said umpteen times before - that 2 votes would be helpful. One for deal and one for worth it!

    A netbook is a netbook, some daft people will pay 7or 800 quid and say "Oooh look its got an i888 core processer," so what! It surfs the net, does some documents etc. silly people, taken in by marketing blurb. If it does the job it does the job whether made by apple or put together by some guy at Bowlers in manchester for 80 quid. I guess that sums up society. "Its apple so its the best." codswallop. More like, Its got a bitten apple on it so we`ll charge you about 700 quid more than its worth because youre gullible."

    Do you think apple would take me on as a marketing executive?

    Well my computer "surfs the net, does some documents", so is that a netbook too?
    The macbook air is more comparable to ultrabooks.
    The ssd, i5 processor, battery life, and design is much more comparable to an ultrabook.

    I personally invite all comparisons with all other Mac OS X based systems.

    £729.60 for the new entry level model from the HE store though. I'd hold out for DSG to drop these further IMO. If not no huge loss.

    There are so many ultrabooks out there, how can you say there is no real Windows competition?

    There's a distinct difference between an apple laptop/netbook and your pre-chewed chewing gum. No one wants your pre-chewed gum (and/or your germs).

    Pls don't make yourself sound so stupid. Show us any netbook which are 300 quid which are on par with the MacBook Air??? I'm not saying MacBook Air is cheap, but if you want to compare EasyJet and BA, then it shows that you are just plain dumb. Period.

    Find me something the size of a netbook that comes with a Core i5 processor and the same build quality as this for £300, and I'll buy two of them. Seriously.

    Anything you can get for £300 will either be a netbook and have an Atom which is MILES behind an i5, or it'll be some clunky "Pentium" (budget CPU) or perhaps if you're very lucky an i3 laptop. If it's the netbook it'll be roughly as small, not as thin, and a damn sight slower, and if it's the laptop it'll barely be any faster than the netbook, except a lot larger. But fear not, it would come with an optical drive! Because everyone needs those these days! *cough cough*

    Seriously bonkers.

    EDIT: Back when the Macbook Air was released I would have agreed with you. At the time it had an underpowered CPU and indeed didn't offer a great deal more than a netbook except being thinner and I imagine a much better keyboard, and I think they were £1000+! These days however Macbook Airs are serious contenders for your main laptop/computer.
