I know, it's weird. I look at the current new MBA bezel and it looks "thick" and old-fashioned, at least in the pictures. In person overall it will look good though. Tech design is cyclical!
There's definitely a role for the iPad. I for one don't like folding out the screen and having a separate keyboard after using the iPad. But some people do need their full Excel, Flash and whatever else, that's fine. Apple is covering all sides, from iPhone to iPad to MBA to MBP to iMac. All set for another best quarter ever. And remember iPad is still not launched in any more than just 26 countries.
I now hear that all blu-ray codes have been broken by the pirates / Some recent boots i got are encoded in blu tray and hd -dvd at the same time .
Blu ray will now start to become very very cheap . look at what a plasma 50in cost 4 yrs ago 3k ?? More ?? Today you can buy for 800$
The incredible country wide battle for our media dollars means APPLE will have to get blu ray in its computers .
BluRay has been cracked for a while now. For at least a year and a half there's been 1080p BluRay rips on pirate torrents. ...Although even when recompressed to 4GB it's still too slow for me to download where I am Besides legality concerns.
I'm surprised what I do with my iPad. Internet, books, magazines, TV shows, relaxing gaming, and so on. And I can leave my heavy bag of my laptop and cables etc at work overnight and just come back and chill with the iPad in front of the TV, and the next morning on iPad during breakfast. And iPhone with Retina Display means I can watch fairly nice quality video connected to my 21" screen without having to lug and hookup my laptop, charger, etc. (iPhone has to be jailbroken though to watch HD content on VGA connected monitors).
