The new power cable... magnetic...
Hmm, what kind of weed do you need to smoke to miss power connector on Acer laptop blindfolded? Is this Apple's way to charge extra money for something useless by first creating a problem and then successfully solving it?
Besides, similarly priced TM8200 is gonna have higher resolution screen, larger HD, more RAM, more powerful processor, modem, PCMCIA adapter in adition to Express Card (can you point us to a wide variety of Express Cards available?), Smart Card adapter, 2 more USB, card reader (with 1 USB used for external mouse and 1 necessary for external card reader on upcoming Mac, there will be no USB connectors left for anything else), s-video output.
IMHO compared to Acer TM8200, MacBook is not worth it unless you had Mac before and can reuse software that you bought/upgraded over years.
