Well, 3 USB ports should be plenty for a laptop (heck, how many wires you want coming out of it?).
You're right... S-Video (most probably OUT) and 1 PS/2. So no TV-Tuner/Vid Capture?
Oh yeah, just use that conveniently-located firewire port on the front.
Not gonna do well for custom painting, unless it's given the wet look (paint over that silver trim).
So with laptops and cars, fads go from ROUND/Aerodynamic to BOXY/Square-looking... interesting.
Of course, as any car enthusiast knows, it's the rounded cars that are collectors pieces. Think about it.
