Check it out: http://www.dynamism.com/mv1/main.shtml This is the Sharp Mebius MV-1, a mere 1.1" thick, featuring a DVD-R/RW burner. Includes firewire and USB 2.0, 1.2 GHz P-III-M, 60 GB HD, etc. So it's not exactly up to specs with the powerbook, but is the smallest 12.1" PC laptop w/ an integrated DVD burner. Too bad it doesn't have the new centrino chip, now that would be quite a laptop. The Toshiba Protege has a 12.1" screen, 0.6" thick, and has a 1.3 GHz Centrino chip...quite a machine w/o an optical drive. Just showing y'all mac folks some options on the PC side. And hey, www.dynamism.com is a great site for computer gadgets.
