Daring Fireball on "The New Apple Advantage"

Interesting piece over on DF called The New Apple Advantage where shopping for a MacBook Air-like windows computer is looked at. Probably not reading for Apple haters, but interesting nonetheless. I don't agree with everything in there, while I like the idea of choice, the idea of "too much" choice is a pain in the ass (anyone who's gone through the KDE 3.x settings dialogs will see this), but too few choice (ie: the Apple way where you get one computer per "market segment" and only one) is also a PITA. A good read to remind us (the geeks who go out and buy their computers in multiple little brown boxes and put them together on our desks at home) how the other half lives and has to deal with things.
