    Well...

    http://www.oqo.com/

    this company, uses the designers of the Original TiBook and make their own extremely portable PC.

    "In 2000, Jory Bell and Jonathan Betts-Lacroix along with other members of the team that developed the Apple Titanium Powerbook, set out to build a truly mobile personal computer. At WinHEC 2002, OQO unveiled the first prototype of its Ultra-Personal Computer demonstrating the PC form factor at its lightest and most versatile with integrated wireless. The first product will be available in the second half of 2003."


    Only problem is it runs Windows XP....

    uhhhhhhh????????

    It is too thick to be an apple product and is not safe for the typical user. I mean the design and the screen aren't practical for the everyday user. I do like how it is so compressed, but an Apple PDA would be thinner, lighter, and smarter than anything that runs windoze.

    i remember... when this was announced last year. no new news, no "iwalk". tho it is cool, i wish apple would come out with something similar. if the damn thing ran OS X, i'd buy at least one.
