I love some of the creative Apple-related videos that people come up with. Watch below as this cranky bearded guy vents his frustration over how much of a “failure” his MacBook Air is.

The decision between purchasing a MacBook Air versus a MacBook Pro used to be about sacrificing speed and power for a thin, light, ultra-portable package.
