Darn this setup! I wish one

Darn this setup! I wish one could edit first posts. Anyway, my fault - i should have remembered that I was looking at the 12" models.

So for the whole line:

If they did then I think they would be pressed to find something at fault.. I'm not Appleinsider, I don't solicit information on my website and cause headlines in CNet news.

. . . the best feature. . . ?

I think that the best feature, only available on the 17" version though, is the optical audio input and output port(s). I wonder if they are stereo, or 5.1 surround sound? I'll look for the URL to see if the manual explains. . .

Shipping quickly

They're shipping a lot sooner than the "later this week" that the news sites are claiming. My BTO PowerBook, which I ordered at 10 AM EST Monday morning, is listed as "In Transit" by UPS, as of 8 AM EST Tuesday.
