less for more

At least they bothered making a new Mac. But: four-year-old 12" PowerBook G4s on eBay are touching the same prices as the MacBook for a reason. A tiny MacBook please Apple, not just a thin one with no battery life.

(Seriously: a Thinkpad X60s gets 10 hours of go from its 8 cells. 10. And it's only fractionally thicker, much smaller in every other dimension and has ports a-go-go.)
