Couldn't care less. Not because it's an Apple product but because laptops are starved for power/functionality as it is and if I were to get a mobile device, why would it make sense to get a weaksauce version of a weaksauce version of a desktop computer? Just my thoughts... I'm sure some people will be at the store a week before launch just so they can get one.

The only thing I see wrong with that is..that....is no longer is a Tablet? They are too ahead of themselves, as-per.

Well I guess the idea was still cool. Im still waiting for the advanced technology as idealized in the 80's.
