I need to set one thing straight before I tell you about the 16" laptop with 1600 x 1200 res. I saw last night. I am a Mac fanatic. I love the many macs I have bought over the years and have been, and will continue to be, a true blue Apple promoter - as I travel all over America and meet with many people to make my living. With that said, last night, after a movie, I was passing by a Circuit City and had to stop to run in and see this apparent 16" laptop that just came out. Well, I was knocked over with amazement. Let me also interject here and say that I wouldn't buy one because I am Mac based (unless Apple released OSX to the Wintel world, than I would buy it before the sun set - only regretting the missed beauty of the Ti). However, the screen real estate was incredible. The res. was set at 1024x768, I think, and looked great - VERY bright with wide viewing angles. I played with the res. settings up to the max of 1600x1200 and couldn't believe the amount of stuff that I could view at once. Yes, it was small, but with a plug-in mouse it wasn't a problem and, by the way, that res. would only be used in certain apps. for certain work anyway. In other words, for those who want it, it's there for them. If you don't want it, than change the res. to your pref. That way we're ALL happy and those of you who whine about not wanting 1600x1200 won't use it. Also, it was running a 1.4 GHz chip, had 512MB of RAM, a combo drive AND cost only $2,495. I If Apple wants to have the beautiful Ti considered as TOP SHELF, than it is my firm belief that they match or surpass the above specs. No, it didn't have Superdrive/DVD burning capabilities, but I could live with that for now. As long as they included the ADC within the Ti, I would buy one for everyone in my company. THAT'S how amazing that machine was. Sorry to say, it was a SONY but they really raised the bar and Steve and gang must not *****-foot around with a "tweak-tweak here and a tweak-tweak there" mentality. Please, Steve! Deliver the above - stuffed in a Ti case and I'll even pay a premium up to $500. over SONY'S price for it. What else is there to say on this matter?
