I find it funny, Remember when the Mac Book Air first came out and the PC world frowned upon it? "What!?!? No optical drive and it's soooo expensive" Now someone COPIES the exact design and now its "Oh wow it's so cool BLAH BLAH BLAH" you guys are F'n Hillarious!

seems far too expensive for me.  no word on what GPU these have.. if any.

Number Six

The graphics are all Intel HD 3000.  For the Sandy-bridge processors, the GPU is part of the processor.  Top speeds for the graphics are 1.3GHz (Core i7-2620M) down to 950MHz (Core i3-2357M).

Give me a 1200 x 1080/1200p screen with a long-lasting battery and I'll gladly snatch one up for traveling. :P

Um, you mean 1920X1200 right? That would be the so called 1200P and the 1920X1080 is the provervial 1080P that everyone in the know want and require.

Japanese people find mouthwatering sex appeal in names like NP900X3A-B01US, NP900X3A-B02US, NP900X3A-A05US, NP900X1B-A02US and NP900X1B-A01US. The more X-s and Z-s they can shove into their names the better; it is more impressive that way. And a bit of S-s and R-s usually acts as a cherry on top. They are fascinated by alpha numerical code letterings. Italians usually name things after locations, animals and relatives; like Modena, Countach, DeTomaso Pantera, etc. The Germans like simple classifications like S600, M3 and A8. But the Japanese stick to their deciphering code books; GSX-R, NSX-R, and now the unforgettable NP900X1B-A02US. Japanease products does not become icons because icons need to be simple.

Nice one Captain Ignorance.  For the record Japanese cars are infinitely more reliable than their German I-would-only-lease-if-I-were-you counterparts.

Samsung is Korean, not Japanese.

Sure, Very Siberian. No one is arguing that the MacBook Air is a great computer for surfing the internet! No one would argue that ever!

Thanks for the announcement, but the headline is foolish. The MacBook Air is sure as hell not cowering in a corner! It is the greatest computer I have ever used in my life. Your oversimplication is based only on the processor. A computer cannot be reduced solely to its CPU. Given the RAM, graphics, solid state drive, and world-class OS, the MacBook Air runs like a symphony with intravenous caffeine.

Can't figure out if your a troll, or just a tool....

Seriously, your fanboyism is so obvious it's laughable.
