    HP Voodoo Envy 133 does not even have got a standard RJ45 connector, only a ethernet 2 wireless bridge, call it useless for huger datatransfers - there you need giga bit ethernet. Also how to boot that system via PXE?

    good point, note taken. so far, i've considered the laptops that other websites like engadget or gizmodo have classified as macbook air killers, but I agre there is plenty of room for interpretation. keep the comments coming, it's all good.
