MacBook Air Owner Gets "Unhinged"

The MacBook Air is sort of an "edgy" laptop, but in this case an owner frustrated with Apple's handling of the much-publicized Rev. A MacBook Air hinge problems, has decided to take a knife to the beast.

According to "Haurum," who posted the video on YouTube, the MacBook Air sucks ... so don't buy one. In the video he indicates that he and six of this friends who also own the slim, highly desired laptop (although he calls it a piece of crap, instead), all have had the broken hinge problem noted above.



The biggest problem, apparently, is that Apple isn't calling it a problem covered by warranty, which is definitely frustrating owners, and particularly "Haurum," who takes a large kitchen knife to the laptop (particularly the LED screen).

While it's true the hinge problem is well-known and Apple is pursuing its normal standoffish approach to the issue (meaning they won't admit it's their fault for at least a while), we have to admit: Yes, you showed Apple. You destroyed the laptop, and also bought the ThinkPad X300 that you also highly recommend in the video. At least you are stimulating the economy and must have a decent amount of disposable income, we suppose.

Watch the destruction:

Okay, so the hinge broke ... wtf does the hinge have to do with the overall functionality of the thing that you needed to take a knife to it. Ive seen people with all kinds of rigged up laptop setups because they simply couldnt afford to replace it. Ive seen cracked hinges, cracked keyboards, cracked screens ... but nobody and I mean nobody ever took a knife to a 2000 dollar piece of equipment just because of a little crack in the frame --- hell Ive seen $5000+ abused servers that after 10 years of being stacked/racked/kicked/dropped/slammed and whatever else and guess what there still humming away ... that boys and girls is a real idiot there for ya ... personally I hope his IBM battery explodes just for the pure irony.

x300 lol, that is the IBM *** child, very much like vista, overpriced and under preforming. The x200 is superior by far in both cost, size, and literally double the performance.

I would have 'suffered' the use of it with Duct Taped hinges instead of trashing it. He's in a better tax bracket than I am obviously,.........

Now Apple will probably announce a recall on them next month,......fix 'em for free.

Must have to much money if him and SIX of his friends all have the air. Hell I have not even seen one outside of the Apple store.
