I agree everything in here, and I am sad to say that I have encountered more than one person who has had at least one of the misconceptions exhibited by the "male" voice in this video. The one thing I have a quibble with is his saying "I have a new laptop, a Macbook Air." How does that equate with cluelessness? :D

You know this was made by an AW member (http://absolutewrite.com/forums/showthread.php?t=197470), right?

The clueness is because a MacBook Air, designed for corporate travelers, lists at $999.00 for the low-end model, with an 11 inch screen, and 64 gigs of storage, a 1.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor.

While the low-end MacBook, for the same $999.00 has

2.4GHz : 250GB drive

* 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
* 2GB DDR3 memory
* 250GB hard drive1
* 8x double-layer SuperDrive
* NVIDIA GeForce 320M graphics
* Built-in 10-hour battery2
* Polycarbonate unibody enclosure

It's a no-brainer; the MacBook is the intelligent choice for the writer.
