Is my anger due to the original MacBooks being discontinued a reasonable reaction?
I just went on my crappy Dell laptop to excitedly show my sister the new MacBook that I am purchasing for my first year at University. Except it had…disappeared? Apple just wiped it off it’s website as if the original white MacBook never even existed. They are discontinued and I am pissed beyond belief. I do not like the MacBook Airs and the Pros are way too expensive. I cannot believe that this is happening, and JUST before I was going to purchase a MacBook in September (once I received my OSAP).
Do you think I should be this disappointed? I really do not like the appearance of the Airs and I heard that they don’t even have a place to inserts discs (don’t know what that part is called). I would love for you guys to tell me the pros and cons about these MacBook Airs so I know what I’m getting into. After all I need a new laptop, and I’m sure as hell not going to buy a cheap one.
Also, is Apple just phasing out the original MacBooks to make way for a new model in the future? I will be soooo mad if a new one comes out after I’m stuck with an Air. Are the MacBook Airs going to bump up to their original, expensive price after the whole thing blows over? I guess right now Apple is basically saying “sorry we unceremoniously discontinued the original MacBook, here’s a Air for the same price!” I hope I won’t be stuck paying more money in September for a goddamn Air because the price gets bumped back up. Uggggghhhhhhh…
