Oh wait, that has never actually happened.
"Deal killer" my ass.

Oh that's right. Click Bait Ad Impression Bullshit Nonsense.
With base prices of $899 and $999, the MacBook Air is still the most attractive Apple notebook to the majority of potential customers.
I don't understand why Apple is still price gouging on Macs. They have the entire lineup of iOS devices to subsidize their Macs. They should be trying to bring more people into the fold instead of driving people away.
I don't know of anyone who has bought a Surface Pro (3 or 4) that bought it to use a tablet. They bought it because they thought it was (supposed to be) a slick, ultra portable laptop replacement. A common theme has also been a lot of regret when it turns out to be not what they thought. For a while it was people getting Windows RT and not understanding why nothing was compatible. Now that time has passed, and its more I/O woes, and random quirks this hardware exhibits that other OEM laptops do not.

mackymoto said:What a half-way attempt to solve a very persistent problem. Why not just allow time based editing of a sent message, like Skype does. Give the sender some small amount of time (15 seconds?) to edit/correct the text. How many times have any of us pressed send and then instantly seen a typo? Happens quite often. Just let us edit/correct it.

Let's say Apple is saving the best for last, reserving a new set of all-new MacBook Pro designs for June. In that case, anyone foolish enough to buy the MacBook or AIR right now would be reliving the Mac IIvx fiasco of days gone by, regretting their purchase BIG TIME when the new MBP's debut only months later. But if there is no big update in June, then such further drives home the point that Apple is waning when it comes to innovation. In either case, it does not look pretty at all. I just sent my feedback to Apple. Perhaps you should too:
The only people who think that way are Pro customers who need a Pro, but always try to see if they can get away with using an Air.
