This makes me ever more glad that I chose to purchase that last incarnation of the white MacBook. It seems more valuable to me now, for some reason! I still want a MacBook Air (cause it is undeniably a beauty) but I won't be parting ways with my iconic MacBook, that's for sure!

I was planning on buying a MacBook! I had half the money, and then I went on Apple.com and saw they had discontinued it! Now I'm getting a MacBook Pro which is much more expensive! I am very mad at Apple!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

well I'm not disappointed in the move (i never liked white.) Glad to see we are going to stick with aluminum! But this kinda reminds me of the MacCube, anyone else?

This move makes very little sense. Sure the base 11-inch Air takes over that price point, but in terms of value it far from replaces the MacBook.

We are a homeschooling family and will be purchasing, for our son, his first computer as he enters the 4th grade. The only one he wanted was the white Macbook. You can imagine his heartbreak when he heard this news. Steve, maybe you can call my heartbroken kid and apologize for shattering his dreams that he had for his first apple computer. (OK, a bit extreme, but you get the point.)

Bittersweet news, no doubt.

Anyone know if OWC/macsales' 360 and 460 GB SSD drives are compatible with the new Airs? I'm sooo bummed that Apple didn't see fit to offer a higher-capacity drive as an option.
