... Oh how about every indication seen in the last couple of years. Apple should be embarrassed by AIR. At least in our local store very little space is dedicated to AIR and I don't think it has ever sold well online.
AIR is infact a good example of what you get when you over price poor performance and limited capability. In any event if younthink AIR is a good value and is selling well then I can see where you might think this tablet at $1200 might make sense. ...
This is all fine, but you aren't backing this up with any facts or really making any sense.
The original poster said that the Air wasn't a flop (it isn't), and said nothing
about what "they thought" was a good value proposition. Obviously, you don't think it's a good value. Equally obviously, other people have various differing opinions on that. All that is completely separate from the objective fact
of whether the thing is or is not "a flop," in the commercial sense.
The MacBook Air is demonstrably not a "flop" in any way shape or form. if it didn't sell well, it would be discontinued and all actual sales reports I've heard of indicates it sells well. There are no published reports that I am aware of that indicate it *doesn't* sell well or *hasn't been well received by those that bought it. There are only internet criticisms like yours, by people who don't own it and wouldn't own it in the first place anyway.
You are basing your whole post on your own admitted bias against the thing, and the fact that your local store only devotes a small space to the product.
This is clearly just your opinion
, and not based on any actual facts
