The cruel irony of the 12.1" is that the small screen is made to look even smaller by that big fat border of casing around it... which if were trimmed down to 1/4" would offer more than enough space for a 13.3".
It would be perfect: small, light, w/ the biggest screen that would fit the small elegant form factor.
The 14.1 is probably the iBook I'd get today, simply because 12.1 is too small for my needs, and the 6 hour battery is a bonus.
The dimensions of a laptop should never exceed 1.4" larger than the screen, IMHO, as any more makes the screen appear smaller than it is.</strong><hr></blockquote>
Do you realize that the border around the 12" iBook is 11/16"? Therefore, the dimensions of that model is 22/16" (i.e. 1.375") larger than the screen size, meeting your criteria. I personally quite like that amount of border around the screen, and I think that it greatly adds to the regidity/ruggedness of the iBook.
