From the San Jose Mercury News: "The industry is getting closer"?? Mac users have had laptops like this for 2 years now. Why is this only NOW being called innovation? Because it only applies to the PC world? I'll give them the battery life argument, but until this week, Apple's laptops had the longest battery life of any laptop on the market (PowerPC vs. Intel/AMD). In fact, one of the reasons I switched is because the iBook I purchased would last 4 hours on one charge just as it was advertised. My NEC laptop wouldn't last a full 30 minutes, although it was advertised at 2.5 hours. I think the person who wrote this article will be eating his words when Apple moves to a portable PowerPC 970 in the Powerbook line. That processor will allow for much longer battery life, cooler operation, and much faster speeds (dual core Powerbook, anyone?). Apple's not done with the laptop market yet. The AlBooks are just the start.
