    Too pricey for an impractical piece of paper.

    It's a beautiful piece of machinery... unfortunately it is totally out of my price range, and kind of impractical. If I was going to spend that kind of money, I'd just go with the macbook pro

    Not only is it pricey the battery isn't removable ($129 fee), no ethernet (adapter $29), 1 USB port, and there's no optical drive. I would not be able to charge and use my wireless mouse at the same time with the laptop. And I wouldn't be able to play a game like the Sims2 in my down time. Not worth it. I'd take the Sony over this any day.

    the idea is that you can have a "normal" (as in usable!) screen size but still have a small laptop since it is jst so thin and light. i know which of those i'd pick.
