    I agree. I'd like a more compact (and less hobbled in terms of FW) design.

    I'm happy to wait for the new MBPs (in 6 months - Montevina). I think they might sport a similar, but less extreme, design.

    In person I think it's probably a lot more impressive. I agree.

    The cost is pretty high too (it's a small LV based machine - it was never gonna be EEEPC cheap) but it's the lack of FW (odd strategic choice too, does this reveal something about Apple's FW plans - hope not) that puts me off.

    So, now on this forum, we have people moaning about people moaning. Is my post moaning about people moaning who are moaning about the MBA? :D

    It's a nice design statement, it won't set the world alight in sales but it's a niche product. Can't we leave it there?
