Or particularly when buying a laptop. Most people don't play games. Of those that do, many don't play game these can't handle. Of those remaining who do play games, many can afford a laptop and a pc with the focus on the mobile machine to be mobile. If I am schlepping a laptop to customer sites the last thing I care about is FPS.
I overall dislike and distrust Apple, but a $799 MBA would be huge. Their biggest risk is devaluing their other products (like the $45K Jaguar X-type)
