    GeForce 9400M GPU + illuminated Keyboard + near design as MacBook Pro (and no speaker on keyboard side) + LED Screen + Aluminium case = The new MacBook - Firewire = 12" PowerBook Rebirth !!

    NO FW != true replacement for 12" PB.

    Oh, and it is not 12" and it is glossy.

    RAM-stealing graphics means its still not a Pro machine.

    I had a PB 12" (in fact 3 of em). I replaced with a Blackbook. That was no replacement but it is ok. These are all used for music and need to be small to fit into typical club dj booths.

    I use firewire for my audio. Apple have lost a sale.

    It's the firewire that's the big issue.

    My MBP is too big for most UK dj booths. I'm not kidding. The Blackbook isn't bad but that's promised to my wife.
