I've been using Macs since System 6; very confused about Apple's design obsession right now. (1) I don't care how many millimetres thin my computer is when it's viewed from side on. Just like I don't care what my car looks like when viewed from underneath. (2) I do care—a lot—about how capably the machine will let me work and play when I'm facing the screen. The problem with thin being the #1 design consideration is that it forces compromise. Thin forces integrated graphics cards. Thin forces keyboards without travel. Thin forces insufficient ports, mobile class processors, reduced battery life... It's not just MacBooks afflicted like this. With new iMacs hitting sometime later this year, which advertising copy would you rather see? ==================== THE NEW IMAC. WHISPER THIN. You'll hardly know it's there. Up to 20% thinner than previous models. Will run games* and let you work efficiently** *as long as you play at 640x480, and set graphics to "flubby pixel" ** once the 5400 RPM hard drive spins up. or ======================== THE NEW IMAC. BLISTERING POWER. Run everything. At once. At Maximum*. * Seriously. Just dial everything way up. This new machine will eat it. Apple, if you can produce the latter, please, take my money. I won't care of the machine is a foot thick; it will look exactly the same from where I'll be using it. Share my frustration? Add your voice below.
