I was just thinking...so what if Apple releases an Ultraportable. It'll be their first generation and from experience Apple doesnt have a stellar record with first gen products. PowerBook The first PowerBooks (12, 15 and 17) all had their issues. The 12" overheated alot and had pitting issues, the 15" TiBook/AlBook. Also overheated alot and the hinges on the TiBook sucked and the first Albooks had build issues with wonky bases and keyboard, poor latches etc. MacBook Pros First gen MacBook Pros suffered from CPU whines, swollen batteries, yellowy displays, major heat issues-too much thermal paste applications, melting magsafes, overall lack in build quality due to rush out of factories etc MacBooks First gen macbooks also overheated, random shutdowns, again build issues with wonky plastic hinges, cracking cases, discolouration, distruction of media in superdrives, melting magsafes, razor sharp edges, cheap screens etc iMacs Faulty PSUs in the G5s Summing up Now these issues obviously didn't affect EVERYBODY but a significant number and also every manufacturer suffers the same fate of Rev A syndrome. I'm not here to bash Apple, in fact i'm a big fan and have owned a machine from each product line except the Pro Desktops since i switched a few years ago. Im just saying from experience it might be better/smarter to wait till Rev B or even C before jumping on that wagon. Especially an ultraportable, which will feature delicate parts cramped into a small footprint Basically being an early adopter means you have a high chance of beta testing for Apple and you might have your work cut out for you in an ultraportable......to some who like living on the edge, thats fine. Personally i'd rather not.
