    Apple fans roast Apple fans

    Apple fans roast Apple fans:

    Wow - the things only been out a month or so and to me this is quite a flaw - you would have thought a bit more testing would have been in order - i mean, like actually playing a movie ?
    Oh well - Steve knows best I suppose.......

    You mean the battery life Apple has already quoted on the original blurb on the adverts ? I would imagine so.....
    There again, it could be a ploy, the battery is sealed so you have to pay Apple to replace it - even sooner now.
    I give Jobs some credit, he certainly knows how to make people fall for his ' we can only replace the battery so give us some more money ' ploy. All over the excitment of an anorexic notebook.....

    I did read in PCpro that although they claim it is the smallest laptop EVA!!!! Mitsubushi produced one 1mm smaller. Back in 1990s!!! Now that is more impressive to me.
