Interesting! I didn't know that. Hopefully the screams of protest in the forums (they ended up locking the thread) will give Ars a hint that they need to think this through better next time.
creativepro.com had the best, most balanced, and exhaustive review so far. ars technica's review was fine as far as it went; it just didn't go very far. Very disappointing considering ars' usual excellence.
Exactly. (Ohmigod, did I just say that?)
Yeah, just trying to imply that smaller screen means smaller, more portable notebook. Laptops seem to be limited by screen size nowadays. Even if iBooks are less than an inch smaller, if Apple can make them thinner and lighter than the competition, they'll have differentiated their product.You do that so well!
Maybe a new small PowerBook will be 13.3" like the purported new iBook, but will be thinner, lighter, have PCMCIA, and a higher screen resolution (more pixels per inch)?
You answered your own question: "because everybody else is doing it." That's not what Apple does.
Ouch! I won't even repeat it.
A touchscreen subnotebook/tablet/superPDA/superPod would be killer. Wireless USB, WiFi, Bluetooth, no modem, no optical drive, suuuuuuuuuuper thin, no keyboard. It could even act as a Mac mini / Mac DVR remote. OK, it's a fantasy. Maybe TWO models shown at MWSF: the mini/DVR/homeTheater thingy and the iBooks. PowerBooks announced but not shipping yet.
Ah, he's a switcher; cut 'im some slack.
Well, I rarely use headphones with my Mac. And I don't listen to music on it late at night, so I don't turn the volume down. [rant on] I wish I could just turn that damn sound off PERMANENTLY without resorting to hacks. Oh, and that damn blinking notebook sleep light. Geez, that's annoying at night. Great idea, but again, let me turn the damn thing off already--or at least make it less bright when it's dark out. [rant off] I can only hope the MacinTels will solve these...
