Seems like it'd be a lot easier to make a laptop that thin if you give it such a large screen. All of the other laptops that small are compressed into smaller footprints, thus thicker for the same componentry. No ethernet port? I guess people don't want to copy over their music collections (or parts of it) or movies or anything like that. And does it only have one USB port, or did they just specify that it had USB, not the quantity thereof? Interesting, though, that they gave this thing so much more processing power than most of the extremely small laptops... I imagine that OS X would drag pretty badly on a 1.2 ghz ULV Core 2 Duo. And no mention at all about the weight. If it isn't under 3 pounds then I really don't see the point, since you can get notebooks with optical drives and a full set of ports lighter than that.
And who would be at all interested in a gigabit wan port on a gateway? All of those people out there with 100+mbit internet connections? And they're expected to use a cheap consumer gateway?
