Really hope to see a Bucket of Candy soon. It would be a lot better than some of the other items they have been selling recently.

I'm gonna speculate that this is a "Mid-2011" MBA, MacBookAir4,1.

And, if you'd like, OWC would be happy to sell you more storage http://eshop.macsales.com/shop/SSD/OWC/Aura_Pro_Air_2011

The $999 price version that the apple store sells has 4GB of memory. This one seems to have only 2.

how is this a deal?

check the price amazon.

woot-off used to mean a price break worth jumping on.

sigh.

I believe this is the same price as the last time it was the woot of the day. IF it is cheaper now, it's not by more than $10 or $15. I was tempted last time, but the specs mentioned above are the problems I had, and the reason I won't jump on it. Nice price but lacking some essentials for me!

Has there been an announcement about Bucket of Candy? There hasn't been a single one this woot.

Not worth it, unless you are buying it for your grandma. Even then you know she will want you to install 8 million mahjong games!

How small is this? It looks like it's not much bigger than an iPad.

Bad deal.

This says it's 24% off a $999 price but it's an older model. Apple's current (MD223LL/A) $999 Macbook Air has a faster processor, twice as much RAM, a newer GPU, USB 3, and an SD card slot. You can get the current model on Amazon for $970 free shipping. If you qualify for educational or government/military discounts you can get it for $949 from Apple directly.

So the 2GB RAM is non upgradeable?

I would like to point out that J.K. Rowling recently said the MacBook Air has changed her life.. She said it really is magical.. (not really)

So that new Airy 'Puter book series was just a rumor?

I think Pornhub bought the rights to that series and is making movies instead. Maybe that was Hairy 'Puter though..

Why in the world would you purchase this spec-ed laptop when you could get a brand new one with a larger screen and faster processors, better graphics and Ram and larger HDD for less than HALF the price of this??

No wonder APPLE is so profitable....the markup they have on such mediocre components is ridiculous

wow! just like my lenovo x130e except that it has a terrible keyboard and costs over twice as much. Can I get it without the keyboard, usb ports... Hell, get rid of all the ports and get rid of the operating system too while you're at it. Put a phone OS on, market it like jewelry... and I still won't want one.

It's a good thing you came in here with the "Apple is so expensive, booo on them! Rawrg!" comments. What would we do without you?

That's a refurb model. This is listed as new.

True, although Apple refurbs are generally indistinguishable from new, and come with the same 1 year warranty.

I don't like that Apple only backs it for one year.

Did Apple buy Amazon when no one was paying attention? I've never owned an Apple product, and don't expect I ever will. Well, unless they decide to stop with the ridiculous prices. Apparently I am NOT the target demographic for Woot.

Get a quad core i7 with led 1080p screen for the same price.

I'm not an Apple fanboy, but I have a genuine question for all the haters in here. Does anyone know of a sub 3-pound 11 or 13 inch laptop that makes a reasonable alternative to an Air? Looking for comparable specs to what's here, plus extra HDD space.

Why do you require sub-three pound? Is that really worth twice as much as a 3 1/2 pound laptop to you? Why is super-thin worth that much extra money? I don't like to pay for gimmicks that aren't actually useful. If you are somehow handicapped and can't lift more than 3 pounds, I apologize for my insensitive remarks.

I cycle/walk to work, spend time on the road, and I fly on business. My work laptop is an aging Latitude E4200, but its small-and-light form factor saves me a lot of hassle. Plus I'm lazy ;)

edit: What would you recommend at 3.5 lbs?

edit2: researching ultraportables. Everything seems to start at $1k, with the Vaio T13 clocking in at $800

How about the new windows 8 stuff? I've seen lots of new thin laptops from asus, dell, and others. Asus has a few that look very similar to a macbook that start around $550. Not sure how they compare hardware-wise, but from the comments here, I'm getting the impression that it won't take much to match the air.
