Aesthetically insulting, but more importantly it's not a Macintosh.

I predict Apple will use money or lawyers to secure the name "G5."

From the article:
Pluses
+Top-Shelf performance
+Hard Drive RAID
+Two DVD Burners
+Fastest Mobile GPU going
+Nice fit and finish

Minuses
-Can literally double as a boat anchor
-You'll need to find a way to tote around
a portable generator strapped to your back
-Could cause long-term back ache

That's not a laptop, it's a portable desktop replacement.

If it were a laptop, you could use it for longer than 45 minutes and it'd weigh less than 10 lbs.

you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods,
you will understand why I dismiss yours." - Stephen F. Roberts
