You're the one that I want

We're selling that thing by that company that makes the things that the other things want to be.

You want chocolate ice cream. So, you get in your car and drive all the way to the ice cream shop (or ice cream shoppe, if it's a little fancy [or micro-creamery if it's too fancy for its own good]), only to find that they don't have any chocolate today.

Instead, they have this other thing. It's a lot like chocolate, except it came out after chocolate and doesn't look or taste as good as chocolate. And if we're honest, it's really only for people who just want SOME chocolate-ISH ice cream RIGHT NOW.

You're not one of those people, so you tell the ice cream guy, "No thanks."

And he's like, "Okay, have a nice day!" Then just as you're leaving, he shouts after you, "BTW - you should check back tomorrow, because we're a weird kind of ice cream store that only does one flavor-a-day."

Fine. You go back the next day. And the next day after that. And the day after that too. There's always plenty of almost chocolate, but never the real stuff. You start to lose hope. You start to think, "This place is never going to sell actual chocolate ice cream. They're just teasing me."

Then one day, there it is! Not an imitation! Not the crappy version! No! They've got genuine, delicious chocolate ice cream! Right there! IN FRONT OF YOU! Naturally, you're so excited that you buy yourself a cone as quickly as you can and sit down to enjoy it right there!

Well, that's kinda what today is like here on Woot.

Features

  • Designing MacBook Air came with one goal: Create an incredibly thin and light notebook computer that's every bit as powerful and capable as one twice its size. With flash storage, durable unibody construction, Multi-Touch technology, and a long-lasting battery, MacBook Air not only achieves that goal, it sets a new standard for what every notebook should be. Perfected down to the millimeter.
  • Intel Core i5 1.6GHz dual-core processor. Along with fast DDR3 memory, the MacBook Air gains up to two and a half times the processing performance over the previous generation
  • The display measures a mere 0.19" thin, yet features a resolution equal to that of your typical 13" notebook
  • Intel HD Graphics 3000 processor includes an on-chip engine for video encoding and decoding. That means you experience video playback and FaceTime calls that are smoother, more responsive, and more true to life
  • Thunderbolt I/O: With one port, MacBook Air gives you access to a world of high-speed peripherals capable of transferring data up to 12 times faster than FireWire-800 and up to 20 times faster than USB 2.0
  • With flash storage, your computer starts up in almost no time and accesses data quickly. Flash also gives MacBook Air the astonishing ability to remain in standby mode for up to 30 days
  • As incredibly compact as MacBook Air is, it still manages to fit a full-size backlit keyboard that makes typing as natural as it is comfortable. A built-in ambient light sensor detects changes in lighting conditions and adjusts the display and keyboard brightness automatically
  • The Multi-Touch gestures make everything you do on MacBook Air more intuitive, direct, and fun. And the spacious Multi-Touch trackpad is perfectly designed for you, whether it's a three-finger swipe to activate Mission Control or a four-finger pinch to see all your apps in Launchpad
  • Make video calls with a built-in FaceTime camera that's even smaller than the one inside iPhone 4
  • Space-efficient stereo speaker design inside the enclosure that projects sound through the keyboard. So you're able to enjoy a richer audio experience while chatting online, watching TV shows, listening to music, or playing games
  • Since space-saving flash storage leaves room for a bigger battery, you can devote more time to the things you enjoy most. Things like browsing the web, editing photos, and watching videos. You'll get up to 5 hours of battery life on a single charge and up to 30 days of standby
  • When you're wireless, you're truly mobile. That's why MacBook Air features 802.11n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 technology. Wireless connectivity allows you to browse the web, send e-mail, and print documents no matter where you are
  • Two USB 2.0 ports and a headphone port give you plenty of options. And the Thunderbolt port connects to the Apple Thunderbolt Display and high-speed Thunderbolt peripherals such as external hard drives

The Postal Service now forbids shipping lithium batteries, or any items containing them, outside the US. We need a stateside physical address to ship your order to. Sorry, APO/FPO customers.
