Lol, I have a Lenovo x60 and I have plugged the USB optical drive into it about 3 times in the 2 years Ive had it. Optical drives are dead if you don't use your PC for watching DVD's and have your audio collection on a music streaming server. The same thing happened with floppy drives. Trust me, the only useful drive to have these days is BluRay or a USB stick. Of course if you want to make your own DVD's and CD's, thats a different matter all together. Personally I don't do any of that stuff on my laptop, so I'm happy it's that bit smaller without the ODD.

I have A900 case and I didn't even bother put a DVD drive on it, just dragged an IDE cable out the back at install. Then again I have drive on a networked computer and I don't buy my software, the latter might not work for more self-righteous people

Also FYI Apple reps are complete tards. Really. We have one who comes in our store every other day and demo's the products and answers questions and he is such a douchebag. He bald, has horn rimmed glasses, and it completely clueless. He also lies to customers. You'd think he was working off commission. "Yes this $1800 iMac has the powerful high-end ATi 2600." I wanted to LOL really loud.
#1. yep.. Hate. Calling whoever owns one a douchebag.. Ok.
#2. No crap, his job is to SELL THEM. Der.

And who's hating on a company? I was merely commenting on the styling of the notebook. If that offends you then well too bad.
Oh, im sure there are plenty of "reps" that are more of a d-bag.... And judging how you post.. :rolleyes

Apparently you didnt comprehend what I was saying.. Usually people BASH it for not having a optical drive, your bashing it because it wasnt the first with an optical drive? Ok..

Fair enough, but you have to use an adaptor for getting an ethernet port, kinda ridiculous there, but oh well.

I guess the race will be, who can make the smallest, usable laptop .

Look at the specs. The Air has a curve to it. That makes the envy seem like its bigger.

Oh, im sure there are plenty of "reps" that are more of a d-bag.... And judging how you post.. :rolleyes

1: Actually no. I said it looks like something a douchebag would flaunt. You shouldn't be offended unless you are that type of person.
2: So salespeople have a right to lie and cheat people out of their hard earned money because it's their job? I don't know about you but I consider that a form of thievery.

And at my Best Buy they aren't douches. The only one we have there is the guy lying to customers. And you make me lol.

You just generalize things in annoying manner, and it bugs me.

Cheat them out of their hard earned money?

Last I checked, my local best buy was selling a RADEON 9250 SE for $110. Whos cheating who?
