    Apple is going to have to come out with a "macbook lighter than air" if they still want to compete in the ultra thin category now. I would never pay $400 more just for a different OS. I have a hard enough time paying just $30 for an upgrade from windows 7 home premium to professional (student price, if your wondering where you can get the upgrade for $30)

    This might make Apple more popular by forcing them to lower their prices. Overall, competition is great for consumers.

  5. Does the Aspire use Intel's SRT or some other caching solution?
