Well, it is valid to say that the similar-equivalent Sony is better in just about every way. So I guess I'm an idiot.
Also, no SD/memory card slot of any kind?! WTF? I wouldn't buy a phone
that didn't have that, let alone a damn computer. So if you want to get pictures from your camera you have to carry the cable, or a card reader with you. Genius stuff. The worst part about that is that I can't fathom that it wouldn't be possible
for them to put in a slot - instead, they did it because they didn't want
it to have a slot. We know what's best for you, user... buying more accessories! From... us! Oh, uh, I mean, it's in the interest of minimalist design. Yeah, sorry.
Just because it meets "some people's" needs "perfectly" doesn't mean it shouldn't have been much better, especially for the price. I love that people defend a lack of features because it's from Apple, where if it were from anyone else, they would spit-take. Don't you want
progress? It's ironic, and sad, that the company that started out with innovative products and the famous "1984" advert now practices this Communist-style top-down "we tell you what you need and you take it and like it" philosphy, and the users just bow and throw money.
Oh, BTW, the eee-PC has more features that most people want/need (i.e. less crap to carry around) and it starts at $400.
