The ads for the new Airbook show it being pulled out of a manila envelope. If you buy one, you better keep that envelope in a big laptop bag so that you can hold all the peripherals you’ll need.
No Wi-Fi access? To connect to a wired ethernet network you’ll need a $29 add-on USB adapter. But wait! The wonderfully designed Airbook only has one USB port, so you’ll also need to have a USB hub! You also get the pleasure of buying an external DVD/CD drive, and the Airbook lacks firewire capability.
Battery life? No worries. You won’t have to carry around a heavy spare battery. You simply need to send the Airbook in for service! You’ll likely be very familiar with the service department. Given the Airbook’s thinness, it’ll be crushed by the peripherals in your laptop bag.
