Last month, in its opening keynote for WWDC ’09, Apple announced a small update to the MacBook Air accompanied by a huge drop in prices: the top-of-the-line model went from $ 2,500 to $ 1,800, already with 128GB SSD. Not bad.
Because Dell didn't like it. The manufacturer this week adjusted the price of Adamo, the main competitor of Ma's thin notebook: now the basic 1.2GHz model (Core 2 Duo) costs US $ 1,500 (before US $ 2,000) the same as the basic Air, which has 1 , 86GHz. The top-of-the-line model, with SSD and 1.4GHz chip, went for $ 2,300.
It has improved (after all, the superior already comes with 4GB of RAM and 3G built-in), but in my opinion it is still not threatening.
