Don't tell that to Sony, who charges even MORE for something bulkier, with a larger screen! (And some nice pack-ins like an external HD... but still, nearly 4 grand and you don't even get the top version of Vista, much less Leopard.)<br><br>It's not the exact product I'd hoped for: it's as small as I wanted in volume, but I would have gone a bit thicker for the sake of the other dimensions being smaller (less margin around screen). It is, however, the closest to my needs/wants of any computer that has ever been made. So, I'll be BTOing one with the works
Minus SSD. I'd love it, but the price has to come down, and Apple managed ultrathin without it. I'll put the grand I save towards another Mac another day.<br><br>If I could wait for MacBook Air 2 (a bit better, a bit cheaper) I would--but you never win that battle! This really doesn't compare exactly to any other product--it's a new mix of features. One I've been waiting for.<br><br>I see a lot of negative votes on MR for the MBA, and I must say I don't get why. Probably one of two things:<br><br>1. They expected some imaginary thing SO far beyond what's possible, that something merely better than anything before it would never be good enough. (And the iPhone was one outrageous expectation that came true, so people can't help but hope.)<br><br>2. It's not the product THEY want, so they assume it's not right for anyone else.<br><br>I'd give a negative vote to the $20 touch update. The rest sounds good to me.<br><br>nagr[color:red]o</font color=red>mme
