    Chip compared the MacBook Air to the Commodore SX 64. Hilarious!

    Sorry, it's in German, but it's mainly pictures so it should be easy to understand.

    Picture two: How about an internal optical drive?
    Picture five: Built-in ethernet port?
    Picture eight: SD-card slot?
    Picture eleven: Firewire?
    Picture fourteen: User-replacable battery?
    Picture seventeen: Backlit keyboard?

    Haha, cute. I do have to admit that a backlit keyboard (lit from underneath, not above) is one of those creature comforts that I've always mildly wanted but I've never had (I did have a work Thinkpad that was actually very nice, and had a keyboard flashlight built into the screen bezel, but it's just not the same).

    Jeez, based on their standards, my first computer, a Commodore VIC wouldn't stand a chance either!

    And the Commodore SX 4 can be used for self defense.

    Having both, the SX-64 has some serious advantages. The keyboard motion is a delight, even if the layout is quirky. It's got storage space for accessories or floppies. It can drive an external monitor without an adapter, and has more expansion ports. And if you have two like I do, you get a much better workout than with the Air. With America expanding, we don't need our computers shrinking!
