Apple builds $999 netbook

Yeah... so there is now a 11.6' MacBook Air. Which basically means it is a netbook.

All in all, it has marginally better spec's than my Acer Aspire One. Which I bought for $200, brand new, from Target on sale.

So... lets see how they compare.

Yeah.. the MacBook maintains a slight edge all the way down to the final hurdle... which is that it costs 5x more than the Acer. Honestly, I could buy the Acer, an iPad (which is also overpriced) an iPod Touch and still have money left over to buy a nice digital camera. You would have to be out of your mind to buy the MacBook. Of course, as they are selling to Apple users, they will likely sell many of them, and then cackle all the way to the bank.
