The challenge with many of the sub-notebooks is that they are just that - sub. Most users need an optical drive sooner or later. With many of these models such things are added externally, so you end up carrying it around anyway.
the current 12" PB is fantastic for travellers - fully featured yet small and light. No bits to add.

I'm a radio freak. Love it. Love my iPod, too. But am in no way convinced that a radio receiver on an iPod would be worthwhile. A few might be into it, but as is evident when the topic comes up, most people see their iPod as a way to avoid radio.
I use my iPod as a way to make radio better. I "time-shift" radio content onto my iPod so that the shows I want to hear are there when I get a chance to listen. Like I said, freak. [img]tongue.gif[/img]
How could you not be happy with balloons full of hamsters hanging off of your belt?
I also don't like "all-in-wonder" type devices. I just want an MP3 player that works really really well. I don't want a ton of less-than-perfect features.. I don't want all the clutter on the UI.. I don't want to pay the price for R&D... I don't want the added bulk or weight of more hardware that I won't enjoy.
