    But is it any better???

    I would rather have practicability over aesthetics. Those who think otherwise fork out for macbooks

    woah that is quite expensive, especially considering its single core :/

    Does look nice and would be a perfect match for a portable linux workhorse.

    Saying its thinner than the Mac Book Air, is missing the fricken point.

    Its ment to be a useful laptop!

    Is the battery user replaceable?

    putting a picture of the top of the device when its being touted on its thinness is missing the point

    If the idea is to take on the Air realistically, it could do with another core - I mean, a Core Solo? Please.
