    I'm glad that Apple doesn't sell out and put "Intel Inside" stickers on the front of their computers. Sure they could make some money if they did, but I don't see how that's different from prostitution. Sell your body for a cheap buck, come on Sony. That computer looks ugly with those stickers.

    I do like the PCMCIA/Express Card slots. I wish the iMac had those. Otherwise...meh. It's not too bad.

    Looks nice! Quite thick though.

    You would want to stand it on something to get the right height for a desktop monitor?

    Like the idea of some fairly discreet multi-media card slots.

    That keyboard cover is gonna break for sure!

    6/10 (10 being the new iMac).:)

    Actually, I think the design ain't too bad for windoz PC. However, when you compare specs and price, Apple wins thumbs down. It has a much slower processor, smaller screen, slower system bus, slower ethernet, slower wi-fi card, Intel integrated, shared memory crappy video. It also costs more and you have to suffer with Windows Vista, YUK! :eek:

    Fanboy alert.

    Intel doesn't pay anyone to use their Intel Inside stickers. They're supplied to vendors because Intel wants to increase their mindshare, and vendors use them because Intel already has great mindshare and it increases the "value" to ignorant customers.

    People that are looking to buy an Apple already know they use Intel processors -- Steve said it himself.

    Actually, they do pay to have those stickers put on.
