*g* If you say so...
I do not want to start MS or XP (although I just don't trust MS, and
I think their GUIs are always visual insult, not even starting to
talk about the EOU..), but my problem with this device is that
a) it is too powerful, I mean it has a li-poly battery, imagine the
possibilities! But no, 1GHz, HD, a FAN I guess, and "8 hours" max,
meaning five, so charge early, charge often.
b) the screen is too small for my applications, no matter the resolution.
c) I need a device that can seamlessly interact with current Apple products.

I refuse to modify my behaviour just so some mechanical device can 
function properly. That really doesn't make sense.
The Newton isn't a "revolutionary" device, it's an "evolutionary" adapts!                        - from
