So PC is for the businessman, MAC for the cool guy, and Linux for the little guy? :smile:

I wonder when the first laptop that comes with a magnifying glass will be released.:smile:
They just get smaller and smaller./actually lighter but soon theyll shrink.

For the price its not worth it. Just buy a PDA or IPhone and get a cool gaming machine at home.

Or buy three four Eees

Ah... Now it's time for me to let somthing slip.
Very recently I was contacted by apple (mak knows the full story) an I was show the air at a meeting I attended an had a QnA about it, What most people done realise is it's a ultra portable most task's carried out on the road away from the office only require the PC an not a optical drive. That is why it wasnt included in the Air.

The lack of an optical drive isn't a big deal, really. My Eee doesn't have one, and I don't miss it.

What is a problem is paying an arm and a leg for something that, at the end of the day, is still just as unportable as a normal laptop.
