“The MacBookAir is Badly Designed and Too Expensive to Produce” said Japanese Engineers
Here’s a very interesting bit of news from Tech-On, an English Website of the giant Nikkei. Apparently the magazine gathered some “engineers” from different manufacturers and striped down a MacBook Air in order to study it.
The engineers all came to the same conclusion; the MacBook Air is badly designed and would cost too much to produce (meaning that there are better ways to do the job cheaper).
I’m a bit surprised by the arrogance of some of these so called engineers. I’m not a PRO Apple Fan Boy (even if I do own a MacBook Pro), but a sentence like this one makes me mad: “I can’t find anything that is technically superior. We can make the same computer at a lower cost”
Really? So what the FXXCK are you waiting for? No offense to some Japanese engineers I admire and happen to know, but such bold statement from someone who pretends to be an engineer from a major PC manufacturer in Japan makes me laugh. Especially when you look at all these bulky devices that are available right now in Japan.
Conclusion. I am sure that there is some room for improvement on the MacBook Air, but this article is somehow typical from the Japanese media. The WORLD can’t it do better than Japan… A bit like the so called journalists from the Japanese car program “Best Motoring” who are indeed extremely good drivers but a group of jerks who always demonstrate that Japanese cars, whatever models, are superiors to foreign ones…
Once again this proves to us that journalism in Japan does not exist.
