» Air apparent

Jason Snell has some astute thoughts on the rumored 12-inch MacBook Air-whatever:

If Gurman’s reports are accurate, this new model pulls the MacBook Air line away from the MacBook Pro. In fact, it returns the MacBook Air to its roots—as a product full of choices that we consider crazy at first, because they’re out of step with conventional computer design, but that will appeal to a target audience that doesn’t actually care about those de rigueur features.

While I don’t want a completely stripped Air, I suspect one would sell pretty well at a slightly cheaper price point.
