Meta Testing

The solution to all your self-referential product description needs. 

I use a MacBook Air for work, and let me tell you: It is a great option if you are a copywriters for a deal-a-day website and you need to crank out some meta product descriptions. In fact, I would recommend this computer to ANY Woot writer who doesn't already have one.

Oh, Sean is the only Woot writer who doesn't use a MacBook Air? Very well. Sean: You should really consider getting one of these, buddy. I could talk your ear off about its Intel i5 processor, integrated graphics, and super-fast flash memory, but that would probably all be way over your head. But here's the Seanified version: It's really thin, really light, and the battery life is great.

And let's be honest, Apple stuff like this also carries a lot of cachet with "cool" people and might make you appear a bit "cooler." Hey, hey, I'm not saying you're not "cool" or anything, just that comedy writers like us usually have a lot of emotional insecurities, which is why we resort to humor in order to avoid dealing with the pain. Calm down, buddy, I'm talking about ALL comedy writers. Including you.

I'm just saying, if you want to craft truly perfect product descriptions such as this one, you gotta get your hands on one of these "MBAs" as we like to call them. Hey, while I've got you here: What are you doing this weekend? Want to take a backpacking trip with our ultralight computers? Oh, I'm sorry, I already forgot that you still have that hulking PC. NEVERMIND!

  • 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
