The MacBook Cube

January 15, 2008

David Gratton is wondering if the new MacBook Air is like the ill-fated Power Mac Cube:

I was about to place my order for the new MacBook Air and everyone in my office was - “I wouldn’t buy that. It looks nice, but it isn’t worth it at that price.”

Immediate flash back 7 years to the Apple Cube. I was in the market for a new desktop and was about to buy The Cube and everyone in my office was - “I wouldn’t buy that. It looks nice, but it isn’t worth it at that price.”

I think there’s a more concrete reason the Air is like the Cube. It does slightly less and costs substantially more, but doesn’t really do anything extra.
