bleeeh macs errrrrrrr

Original Poster

they aren't too bad i'm primarily use linux and windows, but i do love my macs very much, things are simpler with osx - however, that simplicity comes at a high price in buying the hardware.

this is a good price for an airbook, please vote on the deal rather than if you like apples or not.

typical prices on google shopping show around the £1100 mark, with a few dodgey international sellers around the £800 mark. £830 from misco is very good for brand new

I guess it's the older spec..seems a very good price tho

Ok, I'm adding heat - and that's the first mac deal I've done so on

Tech specs are wrong though:

Networking EthernetFast EthernetGigabit EthernetBuilt-in SD card … Networking EthernetFast EthernetGigabit EthernetBuilt-in SD card reader

The Air does not have an SD slot, or an ethernet port - just a single USB port.
-you have to buy a usb-to-ethernet adaptor separately if you want wired networking..

Maybe the description is from the MacBook Pro ?

Without SSD drive is not worth getting, very slow...

Must be a typo regarding the SD slot as my MBA does not have a SD slot unless Apple have changed the spec again.

Not worth getting in my opinion, although stylish there quite slow, especially for an £800+ laptop. If you want a mac at that price range buy a macbook or a 13" macbook pro. To be fair though, I have to use macs quite often, and I still can't understand the hype. Although stylish I find them really fiddly and to be honest I find windows 7 much more snappy and easy to use. Each to their own though!

you are correct, it looks like those details are incorrect on the misco website.

it depends on your needs, i tend to think the majority of cars in the uk are "not worth getting" because they are small and not fast enough. the needs of my motherland require bigger, faster, more powerful cars (long stretches of road, very hilly). whereas here you dont.

my primary computer is a 200mghz with 128mb of ram. my secondary computer has (i think) 386GB or ram and 64 processors... my third is a mac used to create podcasts.. and my fourth is a mini9 for travel none can reasonably be used as a replacement for the other!

ethernet adapter is included
