No Mac laptop for me ?

It's 3:37 AM.. I've been up to follow the MacBook updates.. how sad !

Looks like I'll be getting a Vaio Z. I like laptops to be small, light and powerful.
Vaio Z is the same weight (0.01 Kg less 8) of MacBook Air. Vaio's screen is 13.1" vs 13.3" of Air.. but I like smaller.
The gfx chip is probably pretty much the same (NVidia 9300 GS for Vaio vs 9400 M for Air).. for a little more, one can get a bigger and faster (200 GB, 7200 RPM) hard drive, and much faster CPU (2.26 GHz vs 1.6 GHz).
Vaio is a lot more expensive if one chooses 128GB SSD, and runs Windows only.. and all the Sony crapware, plus the usual driver bullshitware.

Still, Apple is really proving that with them one pays more for less when it comes for hardware.
People want small, light.. and cheap ! Apple is going down on this one.

..bha !!
