*spolier altert*

In past, the Engadget crew have claimed that the netbook form factor is unusable for any serious work. On more than one occasion they have claimed that netbooks (and soon all laptops) are going to be a relic from the past, once every sucker and his fat mama gets an iPad.

In the upcoming weeks, they will pretend they never said that. They will also claim that a 11″ laptop is the best thing since ninja sliced bread. That 11″ is the perfect size for a laptop, and the only thing that could make a 11″ laptop even more awesome is an integrated app store.

    Engadget is a cancer killing technology journalism. AOFail owns them. USA national interests first. The rest can die.

    Those claims sound far fetching but it seems that Engadget is totally right about ultra-portable laptops. There is at least one 11-inch laptop that is completely above the rest:

    The Air is too large to qualify as a netbook but it closes the gap between the iPad and the 13″ MacBooks. The full-size keyboard and great screen are certainly far better than any netbook.

    hi2tammy is really posting a lot of random, unrelated pro-Apple, anti-Windows Phone stuff on this blog! And all on the same day! Hmm…..

    Dude, you don’t just drink the kool aid, you are fucking addicted to it!!

    7.5 hours for the 13″ model?? My two year old ASUS 13″ does 12 hours and that with a better CPU.

    @hi2tammy:

    Your problems is that you know nothing about other companies offering. For you, a 11″ Apple Macbook Air is something between your 10″ Apple iPad and 13″ Apple Macbook pro.

    There are definitely netbooks/notebooks with better keyboards out there. And half the price. Some even have better performance. Unfortunately, they don’t have the Apple logo.
