    i doubt it, for $1200, it should be close to a real laptop. as far as hardwares are concerned.

    Do we know it's 1200 bucks?

    Anyway, an ARM-based machine would be fun. I just thought, Apple have an operating system for ARM, they have the infrastructure for ARM programs, and Cocoa is highly portable between CPUs.

    SSD harddrive + journaled system like OSX sounds like a disaster combo to me.

    Well that's what happens. The smaller and lighter a notebook, the more expensive and/or less feature filled they become.

    wait for price drop, 1200 in 3 months!

    SSD one is worthless, OSX is journaled file system, large amount of writing will kill SSD harddrive in 2-3 years.

    It is what it is. Quit complaining. Just because you don't like it, doesn't mean that everyone else hates it.

    You would have been complaining if they didn't release it. :rolleyes:
