For YEARS I've been looking for that perfect PB12 combination of strong processor, fast GPU, lots of ports, and mobility. Although lots of people still use their PB's, these days the G4 processor just isn't up to the task of handling multimedia-heavy webpages. That's why I freaked a little when I saw this!! http://gizmodo.com/5442786/alienware-m11x-hands+on-fast-ride-in-a-short-machine It's an 11.6" Alienware that seems to embody all of the traits of the PB. In fact, if you turn off the lights on current Alienware models (M15/M17), they look pretty nice and understated. The finish is very nice too, it's a tough rubberized plastic as opposed to the nasty glossy plastics used in most consumer laptops. As a replacement for my 12" PB, I've been using a Vaio TZ, but sometimes the power is lacking for number crunching in Matlab or gaming. I'll be very very interested to see what this new Alienware model is like.
