Apple just doesn't make anything for the uber road warrior, all of their portables feature a similar size footprint (13") and it just has to get more compact to suit my needs, and keep the schlepping factor low. A 10" (or even 11") MacBook Trail - a removable battery for long flights, no DVD, 2-3 USB2.0 ports, Ethernet, DVI (or their idiotic miniDP), maybe 1394 - would be awesome. Don't de-feature to achieve lightweight portability, innovate instead. Not to be.

I couldn't help read your phrase of "MacBook" which isn't meant to be for the "Road Warrior".

Apple has the MacBook Air and as our Steve said "Was meant to be for the Wireless World" An innovative piece of engineering in a slim and sexy design. Not to mention the MacBook Air beats any netbook in the market in regards to computing power.

I completely agree with you. I think what they believe is if apple licenses OS X to other builders, that their computing experiences will suddenly get cheaper for using OS X. They *think* they would have more hardware options. I suppose they would to a point (like more graphic card options and configurations), but more or less it would be just as expensive.

Many people believe apple sells a full copy of OS X for $129. In reality they are upgrade prices that are offset by the past hardware sales that person has made. So in order for Apple to sell full blown copies without the hardware offset, it's unknown what the price would be. My guess is in the $300-$500 range.

In the end it makes no sense for apple to completely change their business model. What they have works and works well. Some people think that a greater market share would bring them a lot more money, imo it would just bring a lot more problems and less money.

What were they thinking going against Apple with such clearly defined rights and usage rules with the Mac OS?

Other than Rebel RFI what is left in Florida to argue? The guts of that case including Snow Leopard have been decided in California .

No. This would be more along the lines of... Honda develops the rubber tire. There are similar systems in place in other cars, but they aren't as good. Wood tires are just far too bumpy, and if you want those rubber tires on your car, you can only get them from honda, with comparable (and sometimes sub-par) hardware, at a much higher price. You are also bound to a EULA that says you may not put those tires on any non-honda car.

Honda additionally tells other companies that they may not have rubber tires on their cars, refusing to license it, as the last time it happened, too many of their customers decided that the other companies, with the same tires, were a much better deal. Honda didn't like that. So rather than competing, attempting to match or beat specs of those other cars, Honda decided that it would make a lot more money if they invested in an army of lawyers instead.

Now, another car maker comes along, and attempts to challenge those rulings, saying they should be able to sell cars with rubber tires too. They offer to license it, pay additional fees, and invest heavily in what they believe should be allowed. Unfortunately, Honda's cult following spread heavily in previous 10 years, and now their customers no longer have a sense of what is in their own best interest, but instead tend to act in the best interest of Honda. Unfortunately, those people don't realize that Honda doesn't care about them, and is only doing what they do for profit, like any other company.

Neither the MacBook nor the MacBook Air are "Road Warrior" laptops.

A matte screen 15" or17" MacBook Pro IS a road warriors machine.


Why? You need it be able to anything just about anywhere on battery power.


The MacBook Air is a dainty, fragile, overpriced and underpowered piece of junk that looks like it's more effective at being thrown as a sharp weapon or used to cut vegetables or something. I'm almost afraid I or someone else would sit on the poor thing and bend it completely unless in a seconds.

If your going to buy a fragile netbook, why pay thousands when one can pay hundreds?

The MacBook is nearly a child's computer, especially the white ones.

Forgive me for being so blunt and to anyone reading this who has either of those two machines, but the 15" MacBook Pro is Apple's most popular selling laptop and for a good reason. It's nearly got all the features of a portable desktop.

Apple is dicking around now, making the matte screen 15" a "top of the line" BTO 15" only, they are really pissing me and a lot of professional Mac users off.

My next machine is a $400 Dell Mini with a large SSD drive running Ubuntu, screw Apple and their $3000 plus glossy screen crap.

If I can't be comfortable using the computer with a matte screen and there is nothing to do on a computer anymore except web surf and a occasional email, there is no sense in buying Apple's $3000 gear when I can pay $400 instead. That's 7.5 Ubuntu Dell Mini's for the price of one Apple Pro Laptop.

My present 3 year old MacBook Pro's 85 watt Magsafe has failed, like so many others have and I'm using my two month old and dead (drink spill) glossy screen white MacBook's 65 watt adapter instead.

Ubuntu doesn't get viruses neither.

Cheaper hardware would be the result, almost without a doubt. But that's completely besides the point, since as you say, it's fundamentally ridiculous to expect Apple to change their business model (which happens to be a completely conventional business model) for the purpose of intentionally creating competitors to their own products (a completely unconventional business model).

In fact, they sell Mac computers, not computer parts -- in precisely the same way that Honda sells cars, not tires. Very simply, you either buy the entire product as it is sold, or you don't, depending entirely on your preference. Neither company is under any obligation to break their products down into assembly parts, so you or anyone else can build them in competition.

The term portability for notebooks require Weight, and Power combined, the macbook air does that well compared to the nascent segment of netbook users, spec for spec. I can't see to many people showing up with a 17" MacBook pro saying it's portable enough.

I would argue that if a MacBook Air is not a "Road Warrior" machine, then neither is any netbook.

I've seen a lot of netbooks, and a few running OS-X, and not one of them is more than a toy. the MacBook Air is the current "netbook" for Apple and compares favourably with the netbook class on everything but price.

I hope I am disagreeing, since your analogy makes no sense. Your analogy assumes that someone could patent the concept of rubber tires, which in itself is nonsense. It becomes deeper nonsense to compare rubber tires to a Macintosh computer, which as nearly as I can figure out, is what you're doing. To make it as clear I can, Apple could no more patent the concept of a personal computer than Honda or anyone else could patent the concept of a rubber tire. None of which prevents Apple from patenting a Macintosh computer or Honda or anyone else from patenting their particular type of rubber tire.

And just to settle an extremely silly side issue, none of the above has anything even remotely to do with whether these companies "care" about us.

I'm aware of that and like Apple I see nothing wrong with selling wiFi to users whos government wants to control their people. Apple selling of those enabled devices has to do with choice, and human rights.

Don't need it or want it anymore.

Got ripped off spending big bucks for a PowerMac G5, 30" monitors and Apple goes off and changes processors and no more OS X for PPC. So the long term investment with the machine just dropped like a stone.

The MBP has served me well, despite having to upgrade the crappy hard drives and Superdrives Apple uses. Now it's the Magsafe that failed.

The white MacBook was a utter and complete waste of a good $1000, it was supposed to be a gift and a honest attempt to see if glossy would still bother my eyes, it did and unfortuntly so did the person I gave it too, who just ignored it and then through that neglect got water spilled on the keyboard.

Apple can remain happy with their 10% market share, the world will move on, but as soon as the "steve Jobs effect" wears off, it's curtains for Apple.

I already see the partial control of someone else, a bean counter.

Tires are what make cars move. Many mac enthusiasts would agree that Apple (Honda, in this analogy)'s systems are rolling smoothly along on rubber tires, while other systems are restricted to the wood wheel of yesteryear. (Though some believe that the new Windows' synthetic rubber-like material is almost comparable!)

Just because a computer costs less than $1000 doesn't mean it's a piece of junk that only "Wal-Mart minded consumers" would want.... It's something that someone with not a lot of money might want.

Because Apple's prices are insanely high compared to similar PC offerings of the same quality.

So Apple pirates Xerox, Microsoft pirates Apple, Apple pirates Unix and Psystar pirates Apple.

And Apple complains?

Apple is a pirate, they KNOW others are pirates, so why not tie OS X harder to Apple hardware so it's near impossible to run on PC's?

It's because Apple want's their OS to be pirated, just not publicly and for commercial profit that's all.

Psystar see's this too, thus they purposely challenged Apple in court knowing they are going to lose but reap a client list and free publicity for Rebel EFI.

Heck, they file for bankruptcy and they don't even have to pay fines or fee's!

This argument sounds like the type of users Apple DOESN'T want to have.

[*] APPLE LEADS THE INDUSTRY IN CUSTOMER SUPPORT
[*] Phil and Apple's executive team Ran the company very ably while Steve was dealing with personal issues. I didn't see any (Steve effect) as you put it wear off

[*] Apple's 10% share has grown beyond the industry in record numbers.
[*] Steve & Apple are 99.9% of the time right. That .1% is just the category of nascent complainers who don't understand the company or it's creator. (Are you one?)

Give this a try

No thanks. It's not for road warriors. I know this, I'm that guy. 144 flights this year.

The machine is a bit under powered. No storage. No replaceable battery. Lousy graphics. I couldn't get it to work with my InFocus projector, not enough graphics performance or oomph or something. Can't do a business presentation, why tote it? Not a road warrior machine.

Maybe for Steve. But he probably forgot that the rest of us don't have our own private jet, and can rarely afford to sit in Business Class, where the power ports are.

ORD to CGY is a little over 9 hours. LAX to MEL is almost 16 hours. SYD to HKG is 9-1/2 hours & HKG to LAX is 13 hours. I travel these routes all the time. Traveling with the toy MBA would mean I'd get anywhere from 3 to 4, maybe 4-1/2 hours of work done, and then I'd be finished. What do I do for the next 12 hours? At least with my aluminum MacBook boat-anchor, I can snap in another battery and keep going. Also, TSA will let me on the plane with Apple's replacement batteries, because they are original equipment... sometimes, they force 3rd party batteries into the cargo hold. We've seen it happen to our crews.

I have more Power Point presentations, Excel budget spreadsheets and PDF specification sheets on our products than the MBA can hold on it's puny drive. This doesn't even account for any applications or music or photos or any other documents. This thing is a cute toy.

Hell, you can't even connect to an Ethernet network and plug a USB thumb drive into the stupid-ass machine at the same damn time. Hilarious. All for $1400, $1500? Give me a break. What kind of modern computer is that? It's for suburban housewives who want to look cool surfing at StarBucks.

The size and weight of the MBA was achieved by de-featuring, not innovation. If Fujitsu can get DVI, HDMI, Gig Ethernet, a removable battery, 3 USB2.0 ports plus 1394 into a 10" ultra-portable netbook, I would hope Apple might be able to do the same thing. If they bothered trying.

Also, I'm thinking you didn't really pay attention to my post. I want & need a computer with a smaller footprint. This is really the show stopper - the 13" LCD means the base of the machine has to accommodate it. I want a smaller footprint. The smallest footprint Apple produces is 13", 30% greater than my desired standard. This is ok for 2004 or 2005 technology but not in today's netbook world.

Apple needs to start innovating again in the portable computer space (I don't mean phones), and stop resting on their previous, now long in the tooth designs. I want something that absorbs 30% less space than their most portable Macintosh book.

And? Even if we agree that Apple makes the better personal computer, that has no bearing on whether anyone other than Apple has any conceivable right to build and sell Apple's product. Building a better product and being rewarded -- that's how the system works.

So Apple pirates Xerox, Microsoft pirates Apple, Apple pirates Unix and Psystar pirates Apple.

And Apple complains?

Apple is a pirate, they KNOW others are pirates, so why not tie OS X harder to Apple hardware so it's near impossible to run on PC's?

It's because Apple want's their OS to be pirated, just not publicly and for commercial profit that's all.

Psystar see's this too, thus they purposely challenged Apple in court knowing they are going to lose but reap a client list and free publicity for Rebel EFI.

Heck, they file for bankruptcy and they don't even have to pay fines or fee's!

Xerox ALLOWED APPLE TO SEE IT'S TECHNOLOGY AND SECRETS AND GAVE ENGINEERS PERMISSION TO DEMO THEIR TECHNOLOGIES Which was a mistake on Xerox part for not seeing Apple was the competition. What did you expect would happen???

The Mac Mini is nothing but a netbook in a desktop case.

The MacBook is junk for the high price, I know I had one for two whole months.

The case chipped straight off, the glossy screen is annoying and it's underpowered and under featured for the price.

A similar PC laptop can be had for $300 less AND include a 3 year warranty.



The metal case matte MacBook Pro's, that's a good machine, a good road warrior machine if one can afford one.

Of course a Toughbook running Ubuntu might be a close competitor, if you didn't need to run certain professional level software.

The point I'm making is, if Apple followed this advice, they'd be creating competitors for themselves, which is an unusual business strategy to be sure.

You mean like the Geo Prizm was a Corolla made and sold under a GM brand? The Geo brand was essentially cars licensed from Japan from various companies (Toyota, Isuzu, Suzuki).

I don't think that Apple should license or have clones but it's not exactly as uncommon as you suggest.

Maybe for Steve. But he probably forgot that the rest of us don't have our own private jet, and can rarely afford to sit in Business Class, where the power ports are.

ORD to CGY is a little over 9 hours. LAX to MEL is almost 16 hours. SYD to HKG is 9-1/2 hours & HKG to LAX is 13 hours. I travel these routes all the time. Traveling with the toy MBA would mean I'd get anywhere from 3 to 4, maybe 4-1/2 hours of work done, and then I'd be finished. What do I do for the next 12 hours? At least with my aluminum MacBook boat-anchor, I can snap in another battery and keep going. Also, TSA will let me on the plane with Apple's replacement batteries, because they are original equipment... sometimes, they force 3rd party batteries into the cargo hold. We've seen it happen to our crews.

I have more Power Point presentations, Excel budget spreadsheets and PDF specification sheets on our products than the MBA can hold on it's puny drive. This doesn't even account for any applications or music or photos or any other documents. This thing is a cute toy.

Hell, you can't even connect to an Ethernet network and plug a USB thumb drive into the stupid-ass machine at the same damn time. Hilarious. All for $1400, $1500? Give me a break. What kind of modern computer is that? It's for suburban housewives who want to look cool surfing at StarBucks.

The size and weight of the MBA was achieved by de-featuring, not innovation. If Fujitsu can get DVI, HDMI, Gig Ethernet, a removable battery, 3 USB2.0 ports plus 1394 into a 10" ultra-portable netbook, I would hope Apple might be able to do the same thing. If they bothered trying.

Also, I'm thinking you didn't really pay attention to my post. I want & need a computer with a smaller footprint. This is really the show stopper - the 13" LCD means the base of the machine has to accommodate it. I want a smaller footprint. The smallest footprint Apple produces is 13", 30% greater than my desired standard. This is ok for 2004 or 2005 technology but not in today's netbook world.

Apple needs to start innovating again in the portable computer space (I don't mean phones), and stop resting on their previous, now long in the tooth designs. I want something that absorbs 30% less space than their most portable Macintosh book.

THEIR IS NO COMPUTER THAT WILL MEET YOUR UN-REALISTIC NEEDS. YOU NEED A 8TB HARDDRIVE, NVIDIA 285FX GRAPHICS CARD, A 3.3GHZ 8CORE PROCESSOR, WITH 99GB RAM, 8 USB PORTS 7 FW800 PORTS AND 100HR BATTERY LIFE IN ONE CHARGE, ALL CRAMMED INTO A 10" OLED SCREEN

It's also not Steve's fault you don't have access to the Airline adapter ports
Also the last I checked user run PS and Play WoW on the current version MBA SSD version.

Apple is innovating (Unibody enclosure, the WORLDS FIRST MAGIC MOUSE)

The MacBook Pro's can fit your needs easily with it's 8hr or even 7hr battery life.

I never said either of those products were junk. You said low-end PCs are junk that only 'Wal-Mart minded" consumers would want. I was saying that just because low-end PCs are cheap doesn't mean they are pieces of junk.

The cheapest Mac is crap (price wise) compared to a low-end PC. I can get a PC just as good as Mac Mini for half the price. Now you're probably gonna say, "oh well but that PC has crap hardware, even though the Mac Mini uses the same hardware..."

Many people believe apple sells a full copy of OS X for $129. In reality they are upgrade prices that are offset by the past hardware sales that person has made. So in order for Apple to sell full blown copies without the hardware offset, it's unknown what the price would be. My guess is in the $300-$500 range.

In the end it makes no sense for apple to completely change their business model. What they have works and works well. Some people think that a greater market share would bring them a lot more money, imo it would just bring a lot more problems and less money.

I agree. When you figure that unlike Microsoft Apple doesn't have different version of its OS depending on what the user wants to do it OS X would likely be at least as expensive as Microsoft's high end offering and more likely more expensive.

Given how difficult it is for people to get MacOS X to entirely work on a non-Apple PC and you can see it would be cheap.

No, these are the most "energy efficient" desktops:

Which is completely irrelevant, considering a computer can only add a couple dollars, max, to your electricity bill each month.

And I don't need to argue about this "cause" if Apple allowed their OS to run on other computers, you could get the "WORLDS MOST ADVANCED AND FASTEST OS" for less than that.

I just described a netbook that exists. You described how insane you've become.

I have a 500 GB SATA drive in my MacBook, and it's more than enough. Where you get 8 terabytes is beyond me, I think you're just being a bit petulant. The largest drive you can order for the MBA is 128 GB, about 80 GB less than the Power Point's I must tote. It's a damn toy.

And you're absolutely wrong there - it is Steve's fault he hasn't built a netbook machine for the rest of us who sit in Economy. This used to be the company that built the computer for the rest of us, remember? Now I guess it's all about those with their own private jets, eh?

The MacBook Pro's you tell me are such road warrior machines are also 13, 15 and 17 inches in size. Again, too large - 30%, 50% and 70% larger than what I want. I don't want to travel with a machine of this heft. I used to, don't want to have to anymore. Stop trying to force me. It's my money, not yours. If Fujitsu can do it, maybe Apple can, too. Like I said: if they bothered trying.

I want a 10" netbook that runs OS X. Why do you insist on stepping on my dream? WTF, dude? A guy can't dream anymore? Not cool, man.

Why on earth do you need a replaceable battery if you can get a 34 hour battery? If the 222 watt hr battery is too big (it is rather huge) the small 60 watt hour battery will keep the MBA going 11.8 hours.

And you seem to have the inability to use seatguru to find airlines with airplanes with power ports in coach for your 114 flights a year.

Here...let me help you:

http://www.seatguru.com/charts/longhaul_economy.php

Kinda screwed if you fall under the fly america restrictions but even so there are flights and seats with power in coach. Even more in premium coach.

And the issue with the projector is not a common one. The MBA can support bog standard VGA and comes with the same 9400M on the 13" MBP. The graphics is just fine.

"You are allowed one larger lithium ion battery installed in a device, plus up to 2 spare larger lithium ion batteries."

They have these things called wireless in 2009. Not too many ethernet ports in airports ya know?

And any road warrior that hasn't considered taking along an airport express has been too clueless to get a nice hotel room with a great view from the balcony that's a tad far from ethernet port. Or just wants to do email from the bed as opposed to the desk.

They also make these things called USB hubs. Which aren't all that big and you can stuff into your checked luggage.

You can dream, but I ask you this, why don't you get a small team of passionate Apple enthusiast and create a solution for what your seeking if the rumored Tablet doesn't meet your needs which I doubt it will.

I encourage you to turn your dream into a reality and give something back to the industry or if your product of a 10" netbook is great, sell it to Apple.

Steve does care about us and he wouldn't have returned to apple to unleash the (iPod, Magic Mouse, MacBook Air, MagSafe connector technology, backlight keyboard, isight camera, OS X, iPhone, App Store etc...) The list of innovations could go on for months.
