Dinner with the Mac Small Biz owners group

I am sitting at the Chaat Cafe on 3rd & Folsom behind the Moscone South Hall. Just finished dinner with the 40 or so Mac Small Biz owners who showed up. Thanks to Niall Ferguson for organizing the dinner. Here we (Andrew, Gautam, Billy from SGVMUG, Pasadena) are with the Timbuktu people (they are sporting Motorola shirts because Motorola bought Timbuktu. Who knew ?)

The consensus of the group was that the MacBook Air is the next Apple Cube! It’s priced too high and with very little to show for the $1800 price tag. No firewire ports and a 13 inch screen. Apple completely missed the sub-notebook market.

By the way, I am blogging this from a $200 OLPC XO. Apple needs to make something like this – a 9 inch subnotebook with flash drive only. It is only a question of time…
