A computer with a sky-high public profile these days -- the much talked-about and often coveted MacBook Air from Apple -- was the first laptop to get cracked in a security hacking contest Thursday.

What the contest proved is that the MacBook Air was the most desired prize, and nobody wanted the Sony Vaio.
