HP Exec Confirms That MacBook Air Slices. Rumors of Dicing Still Unverified.



Rahul Sood, the CTO of HP Gaming and founder of Voodoo PC recently celebrated his birthday, and a friend gave the over-clocking king a MacBook Air as a gag gift. Not one to look a gift-horse in the mouth, Sood used the Air as a knife, cutting his birthday cake quite nicely.

<Mock-Serious Voice>No word from Apple yet on why it kept the Air’s cutting features under wraps for so long, but it’s a classic “under-promise, over-deliver” move in the Steve Jobs mold, so I guess we shouldn’t be surprised to find such major functionality down the road.</Serious>

    As a gag gift it certainly beats a $50 inflatable woman.

    Just because it can cut a cake does not make it a better gift than a $50 inflatable woman – the gift that keeps giving and giving… and never complains.

    And, will people please stop using MBA’s to cut stuff – makes me cringe almost as much as watching an iPhone or iPod being blended :(

    What A Jackass!

    That’s when you know someone has too much money… they bought an $1800 MacBook Air as a “gag” gift, then the receiver puts it in a cake. What a freaking wacky world we live in. 1800 is more than some people make in 3 weeks and this guys is just ruining it.

    I second that.

    Are the HP people still upset they turned down Woz’s Apple I? Come on guys, MOVE ON!

    Alright, everyone. If you all bothered to click the ‘Rahul Sood’ link at the bottom of the article you’d see that it was someone’s own MBA that was borrowed (‘gag gift’ meaning ‘pretend gift’) and that cutting the cake didn’t harm the computer at all.

    So we have a guy who took a funny picture. End of story. The anger it inspires is both amusing and perplexing to me.
