Apple's 11-inch MacBook Air 'flying off the shelves' alongside iPad

post #1 of 39
Thread Starter 
Apple saw a healthy demand for all of its products across the board on Black Friday, but the iPad and new MacBook Air were particularly strong sellers over the weekend, according to financial experts.

Piper Jaffray

Analyst Gene Munster and his team of researchers spent 7 hours in Apple Stores on Black Friday, the biggest retail shopping day of the year. They found that the iPad is expanding its demographics, on its way to becoming the "Mac of the masses."

"We noticed that the iPad his gaining traction (driven by lower price vs. the Mac) among demographics in which the Mac has historically not been successful," Munster wrote. "The bottom line is that Apple's addressable market is expanding with the iPad, and as a result, we believe the potential for upside from the iPad increases over the next 12 months."

Checks with Apple stores also found that Mac sales were about flat. Piper Jaffray tracked 8.2 Macs sold per store, per hour, in line with the 8.3 per hour it saw last year.

"Despite the flat [year over year] data, we remain comfortable with the Street's ~24% Mac unit growth (4.2m units) for the Dec. quarter given growth in international, eCommerce, survey error (only seven hours in the store) and factoring in the Oct. NPD data," Munster wrote.

Deutsche Bank

Analyst Chris Whitmore polled more than 150 stores over the Black Friday weekend, with more than 100 Apple retail stores, and over 50 AT&T, Verizon, Best Buy, Walmart and Target stores contacted as well. He found strong and healthy demand for all of Apple's product lines.

Whitmore noted that Apple has seen "very healthy demand" for the new MacBook Air. Employees at Apple stores indicated that the small, 11-inch MacBook Air has been particularly popular, calling it a "customer favorite" and saying that the product has been "flying off the shelves."

Discounts on the newly redesigned MacBook Air continue, with many resellers offering reduced prices for Cyber Monday. Through its Mac Pricing Matrix also included below, AppleInsider offers the best prices on Macs.

With instant discounts exclusive to AppleInsider that require no rebates through MacMall, shoppers can get a 1.40GHz 11-inch 64GB MacBook Air for $950.59 ($50 savings), 1.40GHz 11-inch 128GB MacBook Air for $1,117.19 ($81.81 savings), 1.86GHz 13-inch 128GB MacBook Air for $1,205.39 ($93.61 savings), or a 1.86GHz 13-inch 256GB MacBook Air for $1,489.59 ($109.41 savings). Meanwhile, MacConnection also offers a entry level 11-inch MacBook Air for AppleInsider readers a few dollars cheaper through its use of mail-in rebates.



Kaufman Bros.

Despite typical modest discounts, Apple's retail stores saw heavy foot traffic for Black Friday, analyst Shaw Wu noted. He noted that Black Friday weekend typically accounts for 10 percent of holiday sales, and Apple saw strong uptake of the iPad, iPod and MacBook Air.

"Overall product availability appears much improved compared to previous quarters," Wu said. "However, we picked up spot shortages on iPod nanos as well as some iPod touches at several third-party retailers. Our sources indicate that this is due to unexpected strong demand as many thought stand-alone MP3 players were a 'dead' category."

HE expects Apple to sell about 6 million iPads and 16.5 million iPads, though he said those numbers "could turn conservative." He has also predicted sales of 4 million Macs and 15.5 million iPhones.

LOL.... it could be a headline except 100 bucks off isn't a very "deep" discount. Last year, they ran the same Black Friday sales and we all know how bad Macs sold last year.

In Germany 11-inch MacBook Air did not have any discount.

I wanted to get one immediately after the release - but glossy screen
Sony Vaio X series is still my choice, even though the processor is weaker.

you might want to give it a try, I hate glossy too, but it's not that bad on the air, not at all.

This is all fantastic news for Apple and Mac fans, but I'm always amused by statistics like the one above, states as if it's amazingly impressive.

"Black Friday weekend" = Friday, Saturday, Sunday = 3 days.

"Holiday Sales" = Black Friday (11/26) through Christmas Day (12/25), right?

In other words, the "Holiday Sales" period equals...30 days.

Wow...10% of the sales period generates 10% of the sales? Color me shocked. Not.

OK, perhaps "Holiday Sales" runs through New Years' Eve; that's 36 days, so he's saying that 8.3% of the period generates 10% of the sales. Still not exactly an eye-opener (especially since it *is* a weekend anyway).

How is the netbook market not there? It's been a category ever since the Asus EEE was released 3 years ago. It has certainly been declining over the last year, especially since the iPad hit the market. I know the pc makers lost a netbook sale to my wife's iPad

The emphasis it on the word really.

Apparently the first predictions forecasted sales of 50 million netbooks in 2010. Then it became 35 million. And now, it is dropping even more.
Quote:
"One area that's come down drastically from a year ago is consumer interest in netbooks," Paul Carton, ChangeWave's vice president of research, said in a report. "Just 14% of those who plan on buying a laptop in the next 90 days say it will be a netbook - 10 points below our peak reading for netbooks back in June 2009.

Continuing on the current trend, it doesn't look like there will be a 'netbook' market as a subset of the 'computer' market. However, there will be those that will attempt to buck the trend and thus, I predict the 'netbook' will become the staple of the 'toybook' market.

Keep in mind, that the following definitions for Netbook, i.e.,
Quote:
Definition of: Netbook

A subnotebook computer in the $200 to $400 U.S. dollar range (as of 2010). Very convenient on trips for e-mail and general Web surfing, netbooks have screens in the 8"-10" range but are not suited for intensive tasks such as editing video and large images. The term was coined by Intel in 2008 for machines that use its Atom microprocessor. Netbooks first took off in Europe but became popular in the U.S. and elsewhere. For categories of portables, see laptop. See subnotebook, Atom and Ultra-Mobile PC.

http://www.pcmag.com/encyclopedia_te...i=59074,00.asp


and "Intel has released its official definition of what a netbook or notebook is -- ending disputes once and for all, at least as regards categorizing mobile computers run by the company's recently released chips: the Atom and the Core.

Is there any way of knowing for sure if I'm looking at a netbook?

Yes, if the computer in question is powered by an Intel® Atom processor, it is a netbook.

Have you gone to an Apple Store and held them both in your hands? The 11" model is absolutely minuscule, and while the 13" is certainly smaller and lighter than a 13" MBP, the difference isn't necessarily significant enough to offset the added cost compared with the performance hit and lack of ports.

This report seems to match what I was told by an employee when I was at the Apple Store in Bellevue a few weeks ago. He told me they were selling both models of the Air at a rate of one every ten minutes.

But the keyboards for all the MacBooks are virtually the same size.
post #17 of 39
I know we are talking about analysts here but do they really think that every body wanting to listen to music also wants an iPhone/Touch? Or to look at this another way does it make sense to carry Touch sized MP3 players for every activity you are engaged in. This isn't the first time that the MP3 player market has been marked as dead, it won't die though until there is something to replace it.

As to the new AIRs selling well I'm not surprised at all, they are a really good deal. They answer the portability question for people that want a keyboard and Mac OS/X. Plus it is not a stretch to see them as a primary computer for a certain class of user. The AIR would be very appealing to me if they had a bulky in cellular solution, even without you need to weigh it carefully against the iPad as a secondary computer.

All in all I'm not sure what these guys are excited about. I'm not surprised that stuff is moving fast.

"Black Friday" has never been the biggest shopping day of the holiday season, which is the Saturday before Christmas. (Panic buying.) Sales might be a little front loaded this year since Hanukkah falls relatively early.

You're comparing Sony and Macbook Air just on the basis of the screen? Does the OS matter?

I'm aware of both the definitions you posted and I know what fits in the category. Yes sales have been trending downward for netbooks since last fall, but even selling 30M this year is no small thing.

2007 4.3 million
2008 14.6 million
2009 30.2 million


The 2009 data is from the 2nd link. I think rumors of the death of the netbook are exaggerated, but it is certainly shrinking in the face of the iPad and the lowered price of notebooks. When you can get something of a similar size with something better than an Atom processor for about the same money, why buy the Atom?

I don't think this is a surprise at all. As someone who is looking for my next mobile device, i've been debating over the iPad or the 11" MBA. My main point of debate is that I want a machine as simple as the iPad, but with a physical keyboard to type longer doc's and emails on the couch or in bed. So far i'm leaning to the MBA 11" but can't justify the added cost, since I only need internet and email and don't really need a full OSX machine. So seeing the numbers of the 11" over the 13"; it's obvious that many consumers are buying the 11" as an alternative to the iPad or a netbook purchase. Based on price, size and intended use. plus, the keyboard is the same size as all other MB's So typing should not be a problem.

I think people are underestimating the appeal of the 11 inch macbook air. First, it is much smaller than the 13 inch air. It has an identical keyboard, but a much smaller screen, overall size and weight. It also cost less.

Students are a large potential market. My daughter is a college student. We were holding off on getting her a new computer this fall. When she saw the 11 inch air, she fell in love with it. We got one for her a few weeks ago, and so far she says it is perfect. The best features:

1. the small size. Fits comfortably in lecture halls.
2. instant on. Perhaps the best feature.
3. responsive. Seems fast for what she does.
4. light weight. Doesn't add many pounds to her backpack
5. adequate battery. (Not great, but much better than the 4-year-old macbook she had before)
6. Nice screen.
7. excellent keyboard.

In the dorm room she needs the usb-ethernet dongle because the school does not permit wireless from the dorms. This isn't a problem.

In her dorm room she hooks it up to a larger monitor, a mouse and separate keyboard. But she says she sometimes doesn't do this, because the laptop itself is fine.

I was most concerned about the small screen. Although the resolution is OK, things are small. So far, this hasn't been an issue.

After 3 (or 4?) weeks her satisfaction is extremely high. No 'cons' and a lot of 'pros'. She loves using the computer.

Although Christmas may not be the optimal season for student computers, the macbook airs, especially the 11 inch air, are great student options.

Good ol' Gene Munster. Sends out some guys to 7 Apple stores and then pronounces how well Apple sold over Black Friday. Really?

Not an intelligent random sampling of stores I would bet, not reliable information in general. Since he has to write something, I suppose making stuff up, and making wild inferences constitutes reporting.

You missed the entire point of the sentence before the one you bolded. The price of notebooks has dropped significantly and the size of netbooks has grown so that the 2 are merging. So when you have 2 10" screens, one billed as an Atom netbook and one as a core2 or AMD notebook, they have similar battery life, the notebook has a better video card, better screen and a non-crippled OS, but they cost similar, why buy the netbook?

Example:

Asus EEEPC Netbook: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16834220848

Compaq AMD Athlon II notebook: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16834107067

Also Intel didn't coin the term netbook. They took a term that came about from Psion Teklogix in 1996 and started using it themselves. That has all been settled out of court by now, but Intel was hardly the first to use the term. They applied the definition regarding Atom processors and such in 2008 after the Asus EEEPC and other competitors had already been on the market for months.

Nope, the Saturday prior (or the 23rd if Christmas is on a weekend) is typically the correct answer:

Oh, I know that; my point is that the *analyst* is getting all excited about 10% of total sales coming from the past weekend, even though it's hardly a number worth getting the vapors over.

The problem is that they never define "the Holiday shopping season". Does it mean Black Friday through Christmas Eve? Through New Year's Eve? Through the "post-holiday sales" in the first 2 weeks of January? Does it start the day after Halloween?

Depending on which of these definitions they mean, it could last as little as 30 days to as long as 70 days.

Steve did say the Air is the future of the laptop. I'm not sure we'll see optical drives drop off in the early 2011 MBP update or not, but we could possibly lose both optical drives and hard drives in favor of a lighter system with SSD and more battery life.

I think I got laughed at here last week for noticing essentially what Whitmore noticed.

I think many dont realize that computer processing power and capacity is already well above what most users need or even carry about, that the SSD makes these feel very fast to the user (which is important), and that size and weight are features, not just aesthetics.

I expect to see a lot of these MBAs in colleges by next year.

The 11-inch MacBook Air is light, sturdy, powerful, and beautiful in person. I would choose it over an iPad in a New York minute.

I wouldn't mind seeing dual HDs as a BTO option with the second drive replacing the optical. I use my optical drive about three times a year. I'd happily go with a small SSD boot drive with a traditional drive for storage.

I think this will be the next step. I can't see them eliminating optical drives just yet, but I can see them providing the option of replacing the optical drive with an SSD. The mac mini server has the option of replacing the optical drive with a hard drive and the iMac has the option of having a SSD and a hard drive. I can definitely see Apple implementing those ideas in their next macbook pros.

It would also give them an idea of how many people are willing to forgo the optical drive right now.
