Apple just ripped $500 off the price tag of their Solid State Drive-based MacBook Airs, which are now $2598, down from $3098. AppleInsider says the cuts came from two components, the 1.8GHz Core 2 Duo, which got a $100 cut, and the 64GB SSD, which got a $400 cut. The sub-$3000 bill should be slightly more appetizing to fans of light laptops. And fans of money. [Apple Store via Apple Insider]
And in the distance, a noise grew, an unholy racket that resounded in any hollow object, in any surface that can carry a tune. It was the sound of fanboys, who bought $600 iPhones in droves at the cube of destiny, only to see their ebay resale value plummet not long after, now seeing the Air lifting.
In price that is.
