I’ve been thinking about this new laptop and I dunno if it’s what the industry needs right now…
Who is Apple’s target market? Let’s start with students, this definitely not for them! Compared with the Macbook, this one has no CD drive (most widely used hard media in school), wired connection deficient (Only one USB port and no ethernet), slower processor and its $300 more! How about the prosumers, again not for them! For most of the same reasons as students.
I mean if they are trying to break into the Ultra Mobile PC market this missed by about 6 or 7 inches. Size matters in that department, not only thickness and weight, length and width too. I really thought with Apple’s knack in UI, they could have fixed many of todays UMPC shortcomings! Maybe that’s the iPhone already but what is this one for? Some rich writer who just has to have the latest and greatest?
My Verdict is: This is an air ball of a MISS!
What do you think? Look at it here.

Crafted in a very limited edition of ten, the 201 Pt Black is an extremely exclusive model. The individual watches are not numbered but instead come with a certificate of authenticity confirming that the watch is ‘one of ten’ timepieces.

Two of my favourite toys, working together to bring back 80s nostalgia. One Daniele Benedettelli built this robot and wrote the code to crack Rubik’s. He calls it the Lego Rubik Utopy, and did it using an IDA* heuristic search algorithm, of course. It’s all available to download and build yourself. All you need is a computer, a Lego Mindstorms NXT kit, a Rubik’s Cube, and a Computer Science and Engineering PhD.
