MacBook Air in the House, Unboxing Photos

Look what the FedEx guy dropped off this morning. For your viewing pleasure the unboxing photos of the MacBook Air. Apple really paid attention to the boxing details of the Air, the box is REALLY well constructed, and very similar to the new iPod/iPhone boxes. Of note, it is amazing how thin the unit really is, we are booting it up now and benchmarking it later.

oh i wish my stuff came in pretty boxes!!!!

who reallly cares about the box, once you open it you throw it out anyways i am interested in whats in the box... unless of course you have a girl firend if so i am sure we'd all luv to see her box

HOW THE HELL IS OPENNING A BOX NEWS!!!!!!

neowin is at an all time low for news stories when openign a box makes front page news

Its his/her money and if they did any research on it and still wanted it then its all good. Everything has pros and cons.
Its not for me.

That was certainly exciting. Now, where are the photos of happy customers opening their new Dell, HP, or non-Apple laptops? Surely it is no less exciting to see those!

WTF!!!! THIS IS NOT NEWS! NEOWIN I HAVE TO TYPE THIS IN CAPS BECAUSE THIS IS ****ING ME OFF

Seriously... what gives? it some pics of a dude opening his mac.... I'll upload some pics of me opening a bag of candy... can I be on main news?

Its just like posting 'H**y S**t, My post comes with padded packaging when delicate items are sent, f***ing h**l :O:O:O:O:O!!!1111111111111'

We don't see you posting any pics of your new apple laptop do we?
Jealously is such an ugly trait.

The sad thing is you probably don't even realize how stupid that post is. Yeah, he's jealous because there are no pics of him opening a box on the main news page. You're a genius.

Next time I buy a package of batteries I'll be sure to post pics of me opening them. Because that's so exciting and newsworthy. Wait, I was thinking about ordering a pizza. I'm totally going to take pictures of it being delivered and the box being opened, and if you don't like it that means your just jealous!

jelous of what, a BOX??? or the pile of crap inside it...

his point is openign a box is NOT news..

Am I the only one that thinks Apple's packadging is over the top? It's a computer.... they take form over function to levels only seen at Apple.... dont get me wrong OSX is nice but this is stupid in my opinnion... how many times will you ever see the box after this?

I actually keep the boxes. They're very handy if you ever need to move your computer around again. That's maybe not so practical for a laptop, but for a 20" iMac or even a Mac Mini, the boxes are invaluable. And, it's actually very easy to get the computers to fit snugly into the boxes again.

Well to be fair the packaging in this case is probably more valuable than this crippled, pile of junk status symbol. I'm not an Apple hater by the way, they've made some great computers. I have an old Powerbook and still love it, but the MacBook Air is a piece of ****.

ummm it's a LAPTOP, you dont need to stick it back in the box to move it

Maybe if somehow attached a poll onto it, and we did a study on how many nubs bought one.... then it might gain a little extra "newsworthy" ness.

That's what makes it so bad. No optical drive, hardly any connectivity, not even an ethernet port and you can't even change the battery without sending it in. This is just another product for trendy iSheep. Sony made a much thinner and lighter notebook years ago, the X505. It was a way better value and a lot more usable than this pathetic thing.

Amazing how Sony hardly sold any of those and Apple's selling the Air at a decent rate.
