MacBook Air clone from China

Where else but China can you get clones of all sorts of devices? The latest to fall victim would be the MacBook Air, as this clone comes in an exact duplicate packaging, alongside a manual and relevant drivers to get you started. Well, opening it up will be rather disappointing as it isn’t exactly a computing powerhouse with an Intel Atom processor that is more relevant for netbook computing tasks. We wonder how long will it take before Apple’s lawyers start giving the company making these calls. One advantage of this that we can’t deny would be a user replaceable battery. Would you fork out $278 for one of these? We would like to caution folks who see too-good-to-be-true prices on auction sites like eBay that sell a MacBook Air at dirt cheap prices, complete with box and all considering this is a pretty close clone of Cupertino’s.
