Forbes Diggs Apple's new MacBook, I don't


Forbes Diggs Apple's new MacBook:
(Sorry for the horrible pun - I couldn't resist.) Analysts expect Apple Computer's new MacBook to be a significant demand driver for the company, leading to market share gains and possible earnings upside in the near future.

(Via digg.)


Sorry but I don't like the macbook at all. I've owned two recent laptops which had that glossy screen. I've returned both of them. Choosing to stick with my Powerbook G4 (12inch). The glossy screen is just one thing wrong. The keyboard on the macbooks look horrible. A keyboard is a very important part of the machine to me. I'll have to check it out on the weekend at a store perhaps. Plus the whole feel of the laptop seem very much like those other laptops. Very disappointing.

And as you can see there are no 12inch laptops to come:
Has the 12" PowerBook simply disappeared?:
I noticed last night that apple.com/powerbook simply redirects to apple.com/macbook, with a page title of "Meet the family. Now complete."

At the moment, this machine is far more enticing.
