The name change was to get away from their old support and parts issues. I think they are a dodgey company and will stick with "names" for laptops for now.
I really like the smaller Macbook. It's very complete and at 1099 not high priced.
I'm looking for A light weight notebook. It doesn't have to be super ultra light weight, but probably a twelve-ish incher. I've been looking at the Dell XPS M1210, but it seems a little pricey for the specs. Am I wrong? Averatecs seem well-priced, but aren't easy to find where I am. Any advice on others to look at?
