I just got a new 12" 1.33 MHz, 80GB, superdrive powerbook - I'm very excited, and very pleased...but at the same time, there are a few disappointments for me. I don't seem to hear the negatives talked about too much, so I thought I would post. First, the screen is small, but that doesn't bother me - it's the resolution. I didn't think I would notice, but I do. The 10" sony vaio screen (gasp, can't believe I prefer a pc screen) is higher resolution and better quality. The slot that the CD/DVD slides into is cheaply made. It has this foam/rubber kind of entrance that isn't evenly matched up (top and bottom). It just looks cheap and flimsy. It's heavier than I expected. I know that seems silly, but I thought 4.6 lbs would seem lighter. It's very dense and solid - and maybe I'm just being a girl here, but it's pretty heavy. Definitely better than the 15" or the pismo that I'm upgrading from...but still.... I don't like the silver-colored keys. Doesn't look good. I wanted the 12" because of the portability factor; I just wish it was as upscale in specs and appearance as the 15" and 17". Don't get me wrong, I'm really happy and would make the choice again...but there's always things we would change, right?
