We're not so different.

Women want exactly the same thing men want. Light, sleek, rugged, and long battery life. Cheap is also a good selling point.

The only major difference is that a small but not insignicant portion of the female marker also want a machine that will fit into a handbag. (Us manly men would ofcourse be using a "satchel".) If Steve Jobs is listening, my GF would reallly really like an 11" macbook. Yeah and honestly, I'd like one too.

What neither men nor women want (in contrast to the absolutely miniscule pubescent male gaymer market which the majority of IT seems geared to) is massive amounts of superbright blue LEDs, giant pieces of ugly plastic that do nothing but waste space and inhibit cooling (looking at you Xbox, Inspiron 6xxx, 9xxx), swarovski crystal, or tacky aluminium decals.
