CNet has posted a new article on the Toshiba Portégé 2000, currently as to this date the thinnest notebook on the planet. At 2.6 pounds and .73 inches it truly is a formidable opponent to the new iBook and the pro users TiBook. And the estimated price of US$2199, makes it a decent bargain.
I think Apple needs to really Think Different about Pro desktop computers. In fact they should just abandon the desktop and get down on the floor. I have never been a fan of the current tower case, introduced with the Blue & White G3. It was bigger and bulkier than it had to be and offered less room for internal expansion than the Power Macintosh 9600. I think the G5 processor should come in a box that is meant to sit on the floor with no removable drive bays. It would house the power supply, a motherboard with an AGP and four PCI slots, airport and as many as two 3.5 (?) hard drives. All removable drives would sit on a FireWire/USB docking station on the desktop.
