I bought this some months ago and this model sucks. If opened three or more web pages everything slows down. Waste of money

forgot price, C64 even back in the day priced at $2000 is cheaper, so it's a tie

niiice... i would go for the commodore any day... reminds me of my childhood.... and not wearing glasses and typin into the horrid thing.....

and the waiting........ gaaaawd........ almost forever.... btw you will have the same problem with the macbook air...... stuck with one now.... its going to be floating out the window one day..... hit some poor sod 20 floors below that will prove that its nowt mac book air............. mac book paper weight more like it......

This coming from a person... who once had another person think......

'Is that your 80's Walkman?' and me replying.... 'No f***king way, that my bloody laptop!!!' The cheek of some people thinking my eee PC is a walkman.....

If someone offered me one at 500 quid then maybe....

Is it cheaper? Yes, therefore it is a deal

Ok you guys might not like the product but you're missing the point. Is this a good deal for this product which was previously retailed at £1300????

I personally like this product and have used mine for ages with no problem - yes it's not the fastest piece of kit in the world. But then it never claimed to be either. It's an ultra-light Mac with good battery life. it is not a power machine and it's not a desktop replacement. It's for people that want to carry something with a reasonable screen and keyboard around that's light.

Again just because you don't like the product - doesn't mean it's not a good deal.

£80 cheaper than Apple's own price for a refurb of this model, so hot.

PC World have now increased the price to £999.97 (as of Tuesday) due to lack of stock of the new MacBook Air's.

this offer has been on the apple UK website since oct 2008 when the new MBA came out. 2nd version way better

This is the 1s generation MBA.

Many faults with the 1st generation.

- fan noise
-overheating
for more info go to Macrumours.com , then to Macbook Air forum on the website

Also the 2nd generation is way better, faster graphics chip which, more memory faster speed, all the faults from first one removed.

In Jan 2009- after Macworld confernce their may be even more speedier processors and a better version of MBA.

Or you can get MACBOOk. Which is faster, more powerful, easier replacable battery and hardrive new came out 0ct 2008 and cheaper. Its onlyslightly heavier then Macbook air.
