thinnest, my ass

Well, that was disappointing. Macbook Air specs basically the same as the 19mm-thick machine I paid $800 for over six months ago. Well, updated a little: 1.6GHz instead of 1.2, 2G memory instead of 1.25, 802.11n instead of g, 80G disk instead of 60, LED backlight instead of flourescent. But it's been six months and Toshiba has all those specs now *plus an integrated DVD burner*. Oh, and their machine is over a pound lighter than the Mac. Though since they added the optical spindle they're now a little thicker than the thinner-than-thinnest machine I'm carrying.
