"A more radical design overhaul was needed"2.0 starson by Yokutamo
Pros: Still quite competitive and appealing
Cons: but the design is getting a little stale
Summary: I understand Apple may have followed "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" and decided to play it safe. But, c'mon, seven years without any major re-design? Apple is being very un-Apple with such a cautious approach. They took some major risks 7-8 years ago and this catapulted them back to being a major player in the computer industry. Nowadays, they consistently prefer to go with the flow. I am getting a little tired of the minimalist, overly simplistic Apple laptops. The industrial look is still okay and the glass screen makes it stylistically compatible with the iPhone/iPod Touch, but I bet it will soon become the yesterday's news.
I am giving this one two stars out of five not because the laptop is bad but because it could have been much better, at least design-wise.
