The best way to avoid losing your macbook air is to be smart enough not to buy one in the first place.

PC = Personal Computer

Macs and Windows-based computers all have the following in common:

monitor/display, keyboard, mouse, and computer case

The PC versus Mac war has been over and was killed dead when Apple started using Intel hardware for their computers. The correct way to call it now is to use WinTel versus MacTel phrase. Even then, thanks for Parallels, the line between what is a MacTel or WinTel computer is very thin.

Mac cultists fall all over themselves to pay a premium for Apple's pretty hardware and the ability to run OS X. The fact that the guts of Apple boxes are now functionally indistinguishable from your average generic PC is not relevant to people who love Apple for being Apple.

The focus of the "war" has simply shifted a bit. It's all about software and branding now.

So, you had one turn up by your document shredder, eh???

Weren't by any chance shredding DC newspapers were you???

There's no time like the future.

@shalbatana: Yeah, but we don't get DC Newspapers here in Canada. As for what they're shredding, don't ask me, I'm just the IT Guy.

One of my co-works just got his MacAir in yesterday. Being a PC/MAC users I got mess around with it for about 20 mins, freaking nice!

But I can totally see how someone could throw this thing out by mistake, it is very thin...

Will you people quit whining, this story was written because it's kinda funny. The new Mac Air is so small that someone actually lost it, though, an expensive loss. Anyway, it wouldn't surprise me to hear that other people end up losing theirs. We had one that turned up in our document shredding room in the basement, we're lucky that the security staff caught it before it went through a $200,000 high security document shredder...

There are a lot of mac-tards correlating with a PC (emphasis on real PC) magazine and website, when they should not, please post this someplace else where it would be more (gladly) received for god's sake, not here where we would rather want you away.. NO, we do NOT want to hear your latest news on your cult obsession; YES, we WANT you to stop posting mac related things on a (PC) website. Enough said.

Grow up, please! Just because YOU don't want to read about it, doesn't mean the rest of us don't. If it really offends you, then simply don't read it. If it's in the magazine and you don't like it, remove it from your copy, or just stop reading the magazine.

Freaking whiny children...

I have come upon an absolutely foolproof solution to this problem.

Don't buy one.
