Aside from the fact that it’s a little pokey, the ultra-compact go-anywhereness of my four month old Sony PCG-SR7K VAIO Notebook makes it the best computer I’ve ever owned. The robustness of Windows 2000 has even won me over. It’s sad, but the Macintosh loyalist in me has nearly dwindled away. Hopefully, Apple will refresh their currently moribund product line with dramatically improved hardware that evidences some truly different thinking at Macworld Expo in January. If they don’t, then that’ll likely be the end of my long-running association with the Mac OS.
