I've been waiting patiently for this one -- a four-pound, 2Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo notebook, complete with Nvidia graphics, a 14.1-inch WVGA display, and a 250GB hard drive, starting at $1,699. (There's also a 13-inch, 2.8-pound version available -- nice.) So far, pretty peppy -- Web pages and Office apps are opening quickly, and streaming HD videos on Hulu are looking impressively sharp and smooth. Doesn't look that bad either. I wouldn't mind toting around one of these things at CES. (I hope my MacBook Pro didn't hear me say that.) Full review on the way.
Side note: I'm finally in on the PlayStation Home beta, but ... well, I'm not allowed to discuss it. Aren't embargoes fun?
