Actually, with the new functions added to iPod Touch I might give that one a new look too... and this isn't even the "boom" stuff yet.

For the spec, the price just killed it. Dead.

Sony TZ is the target. $2,099-$3,699.99.

You are kidding right? $1799 is inexpensive in comparison.

Oh...Sony uses the GMA 950 and a slower processor in the base model.

I'm curious about interface. We know it has at least one USB, a microDVI (wtf, another Apple display port?), 3.5mm audio out, and a MagSafe, but what else? More USB? FireWire?

Also, whether or not that USB SuperDrive will work on an iMac or a PowerBook. That'd be kick-ass.

No. Try again. Go compare a Sony TZ series laptop (the MacBook Air's competition) to this, then come back here.
it's = it is / it has, its = belonging to it.

Nonsense. Think of what you lose over a normal Macbook... there is a *lot* missing.

And you pay more for it?

Yes it is damn, damn thin, but really, I think people will see it as fragile to begin with, and fail to see the point of it net to already svelt Macbook/Pro offerings.

(Doesn't mean I don't want one though )

Wrong wrong wrong, as I'm sure many others will point out.

This is going to be a huge seller.

Well, that's why they aren't discontinuing the MacBook and MacBook Pro. It's not like the lineup is losing anything...

Micro-DVI isn't a displayport like thing since other folks use it...llike ASUS.

Didn't mention an expresscard slot which is a shame. I guess there's no space for one.

If I had money to blow (and a desktop) I would consider the Macbook Air but otherwise, I will happily stick with my MacBook. It's a better deal.

Then buy a freakin' Macbook. Right?

... and why not compare it to the TZ? Apple did.

I think the MacBook Air is the new CUBE. Another failed product. Funny thing is the price is the same as the cube. I think it's a POS.

The multitouch trackpad should hopefully make working in coach a reasonable thing too.

A few years back Sharp did this same type of thing. It was a tiny laptop that was designed as a "Companion" to a desktop or full laptop. I had one and it was pretty cool but after a while the trade offs didn't make sense and I got rid of it a couple of months later. Between my MacBook, my iPhone, and my Winmobile smartphone ( I have to have it due to no exchange support on iPhone and my company won't allow IMAP!) I am pretty well satisfied with my mobility options.
