Apple Macintosh - when high-concept design means built-in obsolescence
Gosh, those new Macs are LOVELY! Macbook Air? FABULOUS. Just like I thought my Macbook was gorgeous when I bought it 18 months ago. Now it is stained, dirty and cracked where the magnetic closure catches rest, subject to major battery problems and I am certain it is meant to be like that. To make me WANT A NEW ONE. To hell with this, I'm going to buy a Panasonic Toughbook, built to withstand nuclear attack! And user-serviceable with a CHISEL!
