Oh thank God.  I've just spent several hours helping a friend try to pick out a laptop.  We just couldn't find the right mix of power and weight and features.  The Windows market is giant, f'ing mess.

I popped over to Mac's webpage.  Holy crap folks.  Have you seen their MacBook Air page?  Clean. Crisp.  Easy to understand.  My friend just about bought one rather than continue to spend hour after hour, digging through Dell's and HP's and Acer's and all the others, comparing endless lists of models and modifications and prices.  I've never been so disgusted at the complexity of the choices before me, and such poorly designed webpages that could not cut the clutter and deliver you the details you want (or need).

He was almost sold on an HP with an A8 processor, but it was over 6lbs. WTF HP.

Folks, go ahead and skin me alive, but Steve Jobs knew what he was doing with his MacBook Air line.  We really need someone on the Windows side of the house with some vision.  Intel is just insterested in selling expensive cpus.  Hopefully AMD can deliver, but they seem to be in 'all suits to the table, review all our expenses and look for growth' mode, kind of like HP - rudderless in the storm, panicing every step of the way.

Exactly what I think about the pc market, apple gives the facts people want to know, Without all of the techy stuff to make layman run away. I think that is what I will do when I graduate from high school, make a company that sells great computers, for people who want power,looks...ect. ILL BE RICH! ;D

@someuid: Those "ultrabooks" (MacBook Air me-toos) could at least rip off the MBA's trackpad. That would be a good start if they want to be competitive.
