I think the best laptop EVER would be the Clamshell Core Duo(or Merom). This would be awesome. I just love the looks of them, plus the handle. Anybody with me?

Lord no. Maybe if they had different colors, in metallic, and weren't clamshell shaped.

The one I'd buy is:

Navy Blue Merom/Yonah iBook (or Macbook)
12", 13", 14" screen
Core Duo, Core 2 Duo
Dual Layer Superdrive
BT + AP 802.11n
20 Hour battery life
iPhone integration
Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard
Ability to change the color of the glowing Apple
iSight and Front Row
Backlit keyboard
Convertible notebook (like a tablet notebook, the screen rotates and closes down to use like a tablet)
1" thin

Doesn't it release tomorrow?

Probably because most people find them stylish. Although I saw one go for $10 since it had a dim screen.
Of course the screen sizes would make a clamshell 17" macbook pro -- huge.

At that point, add a strap and it would start looking like a stylish diaper bag.

Don't you remember the amount of wasted space around the screens.

Anything with current screen sizes would be rather big, and something in a 17 incher Clamshell Pro model would be a laptop for 300+lb people only.
