MacBook Air sharp enough to slice bread, bone, human flesh

deadly_mba.jpg

According to a group of Germans — a people who know a thing or two about the subject — the edge of a MacBook Air, quickly drawn across the softly pulsing skin of a human throat, is enough to slice through windpipes, sever sinew and squirt spouts of crimson-scented gore. It’s also sharp enough to slice a loaf of bread or accidentally dice an elbow. Apple currently has no plans to adopt either MBA “feature” into a hip, upbeat television advertisement, backed by the melodious lyrics of Yael Naïm. Pity.

MacBook Air can cut through bread, flesh [Google Translate via Engadget]

Update: Sadly, it appears the cut was actually from a regular Macbook, not an Air. I’m pretty sure that means the Air is even more dangerous! – Joel

    #2 Damn you beat me to it, reading this I had images of TSA people saying “This computer can be used as a weapon, let me demonstrate… ” (*squick*). ;)

    You can use a normal whet stone to sharpen your Macbook Air, but most people will opt for the $149.99 Belkin rechargeable sharpening station. It doesn’t work as well as a $5 whet stone, but the design complements the look of the Macbook Air quite nicely.

    From (Google translated) TFA:
    2nd No, the MacBook Air can not cut bread, at least it can not touch. It is the photo above is written as a “dramatized presentation,” a scherzhafte exaggeration of actual sharp MacBook Air

    Ok, it will slice bread and flesh, but bone? I don’t think so. The MacBook Air may be the sharpest laptop out there, but its still not cutting-edge technology.

    now all someone has to do is figure out how to overclock it so it gets hot enough to toast the bread it just sliced.

    @Randalll: Thanks, man. Best laugh I’ve had all day. But seriously, Belkin has no shame. They’ll make an accessory for anything. It’s funny because it’s true! =P

    I think Jobs is going to announce the serrated MacBook Air soon.
