This machine isn't for the casual user. It is for users that are constantly on the go and are willing to compromise speed, storage and on board optical for something very light and portable . I personally love it but unfortunately I'm not the target so I'll never own one :-( I would love it for traveling but I'm not in a place yet where I can have extra computers just to travel with.. someday, someday...

I think it's amazing. I wouldn't run out to buy one if I wasn't in the market for a new computer, but as I am currently using a Tangent (yeah, no one's heard of it) from 2001, I am long overdue for an upgrade. And this just moved to the top of my list! I'm not too worried about installing CD's, etc., because it comes with software that you can install on another computer (Mac or PC) and you can "borrow" that computer's optical drive. And yeah, it's a little pricey, but you get what you pay for!

It's so pretty. And I'm in love with the touch pad. But three grand? That's a little excessive for something I just want because it's pretty. I am also spoiled by my large MacBook Pro and my large desktop monitor. I don't think I could deal with an itty bitty monitor like that. But...it's so pretty.

Apple is for douchebaqs... in fact, steve handjobs markets to douchebags who care more about the color of their laptop than the functionality.

Where are y'all seeing the price?

Not impressed! Do not want! The only thing thats remotely cool is the multi-touch trackpad. The footprint is the SAME as my MacBook, why would I pay x3 price for something I already have? Also - it's BIG... did you see the product shots of it on top of a 15" MacBook Pro? It's HUGE! SSD is also not worth paying that much for. I'll wait for the price drops and maybe a new line of notebooks next year... all with multi-touch trackpads!

Mmm, SSD!I can't wait to lust over this machine at the apple store, but it is too bare bones to switch from my G4. I already tried a Macbook and had keyboard/OS (Leopard) issues... so, still waiting Steve. :)

Also, I just watched a little more about it. There isn't an optical drive, so you can't watch dvd's or install any programs that come from disc. I know that some times CD drivers are obsolete, but if I was to install Windows, how would I do that, along with larger programs that only come in disc format. I do understand that there is an external, but externals were so 5 years ago! Ill be buying the original macbook this February.

I'm kind of mad about this, actually. I have a 12" Powerbook that's going on four years old, and I was hoping Apple would introduce a new small computer so I could upgrade. But I want my computer to have a bigger hard drive than my iPod! It is beautiful, though.

it's a good thing it easily fits in an envelope, that will make sending it back to apple in a year to replace the battery much easier!
