    No ethernet, slow HD, 1x USB - na, not my cup of tea.

    I like the Star Trek-ish design though.

    Well you can use USB hubs, but I would have added a eSATA connector too.

    But an USB-hub would certainly increase the space used by the subnotebook. By adding a few more features, Apple just had to abandon the "thinnest notebook"-campaign while allowing it to gain a more broadened audience.

    too little stuff inside. besides it looks so fragile. i can imagine someone easily breaking that thin thing by an accident.

    you would have to carry lots of extra external equipment with you. at least an usb-hub would be a must-carry-along. which already sucks. also hardware is sub-par. cpu is not really the new intel cpu, but an older generation model. difficult/impossible to make a hardware upgrade. and you have send it to apple to replace a battery, that will definitely die in a few months.

    this is not a carry-around laptop. you must have extra hardware for it, it doesn't seem prepared to being carried around with less-than-careful handling. as some reviewer put it, toshiba made a laptop what's only a couple milimeters thicker and offers much more.

    ot:

    i really don't get this apple hype. i saw the announcement of this laptop on the keynote and jobs was walking around and saying "incredible/wonderful/amazing/whatever, isn't it?" . i guess he wasn't really certain about that and wanted to force people to believe it. i wasn't one bit impressed. but maybe that's because i'm no apple fan.

    i guess i've become too linuxified to be impressed. besides all that keynote was about "free software" upgrades to paid services. i'm really feeling like apple is making a ripoff on top of linux/unix codebase.

    oh, and that "whopping" five new iphone apps. man, that was really embarrassing. people are waiting for sdk, and all they get are 5 crappy apps.

    sorry, couldn't resist.
