    I want an ultra-portable MacBook with an ExpressCard slot (and a matte screen).

    By “ultra portable” I mean something comparable to Samsung’s Q series or Sony’s VAIO TX series.

    I have been patiently waiting for the Intel replacement for my 12” PowerBook. I was hoping for two things: (i) a smaller enclosure and (ii) a PCMCIA slot for a 3G modem (well at least an ExpressCard slot).

    The recently released MacBook is hot and heavy. It’s also much larger (albeit thinner) than my 12” PowerBook.

    The MacBook screen is also a shocker. I never knew that “glossy” was a euphemism for “crap”. And there’s still no ExpressCard slot – something that’s essential for a truly mobile solution.

    I need to use my laptop in interviews and meetings – but I don’t want the computer to be too intrusive. I need more functionality, ease of use and power than any PDA can offer. I need to access my email, word processor and the web – and iChat.

    I DON’T need to design websites, author podcasts or watch feature length movies. I don’t need a “desktop replacement” – I have a desktop for that.

    I am sure that I’m not alone.

    You're probably not alone, but you probably are SOL....
