"Apple laptop ... best portable UNIX ... platform there is"
I've got a rather nice Asus laptop here. It runs Linux (which is rather like UNIX) rather well. It looks rather nice too. I'll bet it pisses all over your Macintosh (which at least might be waterproof). Oh yes, and I can upgrade the memory and storage. Rather a nice little unit.
Rather happy, am I. Rather suckered, were you?
