I want one! I've had my MacBook for a year and an IBook a year before. I love my Apple, worth every penny and I'll never own another PC ever again!

Definitely sexy, but I use my laptop as a desktop more then anything else so super easy portablity isn't that big of a concern. I will say that smaller is sexy but I won't pay $1800 for small.

No DVD drive? No fans (mmm.. burned legs)? And it runs on those iPod like hard drives? Those things aren't designed to run all the time like a normal hard drive...

Neat gadget but meh...1800$ worth?

I've been a Mac user sine 1986 and love em. I've been waiting to see the specs on this MacBook since I'd like to use it instead of my 12" Powerbook when I travel on the motorbike..

I am a bit disappointed tho'.

Hard drive is only 80gb, Solid State unit is 64gb and adds $1000 to the price.

Optical drive is external.

Can't upgrade RAM.

Heat looks like it will be an issue.

Touchpad is cool.

If people on the board are thinking of jumping on some Apple stock it is a good time right to do this.
