The MacBook Pro is only 1.0" thick, which seems to be the thinnest you can make a laptop and still fit a DVI port on it and such. For some reason, every PC laptop with a 15.4" screen that I can find is between 1.38 and 1.5" thick, but the weights are comparable to the MacBook Pro. Can anyone name a thinner 15" PC laptop? I am really curious, because I want a new computer, and I want to at least know what the non-Mac competition is like. Also, do you think thickness or thinness is important? You notice the weight of the computer in your bag, but do you really notice the thickness? Yet for some reason, I still like thin laptops. Maybe it is because Madison Avenue has brainwashed me with their ads showcasing anorexic laptops.
