Bad: Cannot replace the CPU for a further upgrade
Comment: This is a pefect machine, strong, thin, light, fast.
Good: Thin, gorgeous, light, runs Mac OS X and Windows
Bad: What's not to like?
Comment: I think this is a great machine - it's not as pricey as CNET makes out. Run Mac OS X - which is better than Windows, or run poor old Windows if you must. Best of both worlds!
