    I know 'and I'm a PC too' is in the ads, but a mac is not a PC in the acknowledged sense of the word. Otherwise I can't go around saying PCs suck. So there.

    Another bit of rubbish from Sony. Keep it up! I get my entertainment from knowing they will never make a better minidisc player than the MZ-R91 or a better console than the PS1.

    Dumb. But if I wanted a PC notebook I would get a Vaio - they are by far the best looking as far as PCs go.

    Here's a giant picture of a VAIO in case anyone cares: SONY VAIO

    I never could figure out why PC laptops always have those hooks on the screen bezel.

    It's both. Maybe a Pac, or Mapc, or......

    "I'm a VAIO" is stupid, but the girl they use is really cute... at least at 120 pixels tall. :p

    That was stupid, unoriginal, and as far as I know a Vaio is a PC. :rolleyes:

    And what's up this?:

    They must really want to confuse people.

    Sony and Apple actually have a pretty good history of working together. The original Powerbook was a partial Sony creation and they manufactured a lot of parts for Macs over many years. As of late Sony's leadership has been increasingly arrogant. Just look at their comments on the PS3. Their newest one was that the PS3 was going to teach its users/consumers "discipline." They're just being childish in general right now.

    Pardon, what? I've already decided NOT to buy a PS3. Definitely getting the new Wii. Shame, as I love the Final Fantasy games. :(

    For ergonomics while typing? I dunno. Maybe to avoid brushing it while typing...

    Finally someone answers the question; only it wasn't an answer, but more spam comming out of the MJ spam factory.

    More eronomic? My right hand just natually falls to the middle of this PowerBook with its trackpad in the center. I would not buy a laptop of any brand that had the frigging track pad on the left side.

    I'm going to do a Google search about left side trackpads, and when I find the answer, I will proclaim myself as the smartest member of MacRumors bar none. :p

    EDIT:

    After Google search:

    Apparently I'm not the only one that thinks the trackpad on the left side is screwy:

    Holy crap! They invented 5 NEW COLOURS?!

    That alone should be reason enough to buy these computers, when was the last time a new colour was invented?!

    Wow.
