Any talk of IBM bringing out a 12"-13" with a built-in optical drive?
It would be nice if there was some competition out there to keep Sony honest on their upcharges for better CPUs, memory and hard drives. I admire those people who are upgrading on their own with 3rd party parts. But, not everyone has the skill and guts to do so.
Well, there is this thing called Benq Joybook 7000. It weighes about 0.1 lb heavier than S and comes with a 14.1" wide-screen driven by 64MB Mobility Radeon 9700. You can buy it in Taiwan now and it is much cheaper than S.
