10.4 inch screen, just under 2 pounds, carbon nickel casing and "about" half an inch thick. She might be a beauty in her own way, but she still runs Windoze:

ah, but, correct me if i'm wrong, it has no optical drive. so in my book, this is a subportable, not a portable, hence not comparable to other laptops.

plus, ugly...

the hinge is the battery...

I saw these in Japan last month, really cool.
The motherboard is as big as a deck of cards, and super light.
Basically a workstation...

It looks like a chunk would break off if you bumped it too hard. Only seeing a profile though, I can't say anything about looks.

say what you will - i would love to have that baby optical drive or no. i don't usually use my optical drive when i'm away from my desk, so that would be no big deal. and i use an external monitor to span my ibook now, so i would have some extra real estate. but to have a full-powered (though not fully-equipped) laptop of that size would make me incredibly happy. shame about the whole OS X thing, though...
