It's a good value for the price. But at the end of the day there's only so much someone will be willing to sacrifice for a deal. Personally I like speed and no latency so I wouldn't be in the market for either. If I could throw Chrome on this one (not neverware) I'd be in on this one just for fun. That being said for the price both are fine deals. Esspecially when the fact a windows license itself can be $100+.Glancealot wrote: ↑ I personally wouldn't buy the $99 machine though, not only because that it has an even worse CPU. The thickness of that $99 machine is 1.78cm instead of 1.29cm, and it obviously doesn't use as much metal in terms of the physical build. The selling point of these Chinese macbook air knock-offs should be the build and portability. Just look at the picture of the $99 (now $169) machine and you will see that the base is really bulky (it's like the difference between iphone 5C and 5S):
My only concern would be with the brand/company itself which I'd be assuming is unresponsive. That being said it's hard to expect a massive amount of service on a machine at this price range.
Like that one person spent an hour trying to get a price reduction to $89 since apparently $99 is slightly too much in his eyes for that machine... Just blows my mind how entitled some people can be.
