The world's only Windows Fanboy, Paul Thurott (http://www.winsupersite.com/), just bought a 12" powerbook, according to his blog, (http://www.internet-nexus.com/2004_06_06_archive.htm#108698847898201264), and believe it or not, he's kind of grudgingly positive about it!

I would like to make a comment about his statement about the powerbooks heat. I attached it for you. Since metal is a heat conductor no duh the aluminum will feel hot. I think apple added the aluminum for not just looks but, act like a heatsink. The PC notebooks are made out of plastic, so the heat gets trapped in the notebook intill the fans turn on. On my brothers dell no heat comes out in till the fans come bursting on. Sure some of the heat will be absorbed by the plastic but, not as much as the powerbooks aluminum. So that is personal preference. Also, he has to think that since the 12 inch powerbook is for portablity then overall power and features, they need to cut some features down that the 15 and 17 inch has what he is looking for. Also, the size of the 12" powerbook doesn't alow the extra features.
