X-bit Labs has written an unconventional review of Apple's MacBook Air. The reviewer will be cursed forever by Mac fanboys as he deleted the Mac OS X operating system to turn the laptop into a Windows Vista system:
Yes! It is Apple’s pride and beauty, the most exciting newcomer of the early 2008, MacBook Air. We managed to get our hands on one of the first production samples of this device and we couldn’t help checking it out in our unconventional experiments. That is why if you have come to our site to find just another typical review of a new ultra-portable mobile computer from Apple, you will hardly like this article. In this case, don’t waste your time and look for these reviews somewhere else, especially since there are quite a few available online already. As for us, we are going to first of all target those Windows fans, who are not planning to convert into an alternative religion and are just looking for a new portable computer. Since Apple MacBook Air is a truly remarkable choice from the mobility standpoint. Apple’s powerful marketing campaign stresses that it is the thinnest and lightest solution out there, and it is absolutely true: this solution has no competitors. At first glance, MacBook Air is an excellent mobile companion, in the full meaning of the word “mobile”. However, will those users who prefer Windows OS be happy with it? Let’s discuss this matter now.
Check it out over here. The reviewer says the MacBook Air is beautiful, innovative, mobile and quite functional and hence is very appealing to users but that it's not the ideal Wintel machine because of some firmware problems.
