    I love how people are so preoccupied with a new consumer elecronic from Apple to realise by the time they get one, Australian internet could be a slowed-down censored husk.

  14. Hell yeah.

    It looks awesome. It would totally replace my MacBook Pro. Much lighter much thinner and as sexy as me :)

    Will be getting the one with 3G capability.

    You were doing great till you got to that last phrase :LOL:

    I wonder, given that this product is meant to be carried around A LOT, how durable and shock-resistant it is?

  16. It hardly looks like a replacement for a macbook pro Vic, let alone any laptop.

    Seems a bit limited.

  17. I should clarify, for every day use it would replace my MBP. If going away for business etc, then the MBP would come with me.

    I use my MBP whilst I'm at work. I use it to surf the net, chat and come to think of it, not much else.

    So it would probably suit me. Hell, I'll buy one even if it doesn't suit me :D

  18. Aye, in that case you have my premission to buy it. :p

  19. But it won't even surf the web very well as it doesn't support Flash. Like it or not, Flash is everywhere.

  20. I also believe it is missing IM which my wife wants it for in the lounge.
