Claim Chowder, Circa 2009: ‘Why Apple Must Do a Netbook Now’

David Carnoy, writing for CNet in 2009:

Ken: “A lot of people would pay $599 for an Apple Netbook.”

Me: “No one’s buying the Macbook Air at $1,800.”

Ken: “I wouldn’t say no one.”

Me: “OK, but it’s sort of the Apple TV of laptops. It’s just not that relevant. Most people would prefer buying a more powerful notebook that weighs a little more for a grand.”

Wonder what would happen if Apple sold the Air for $999?
