Yesterday I had the first chance to examine the 12″ inch PowerBook. It is really very well designed. There are little glitches in the production of it (small gaps that are wider on one side than on the other), but generally it feels much more solid than my 1st generation 15″ inch PowerBook. I wonder if they will be able to keep this impression with the 17″ inch PowerBook.
Here is a user that thinks the 12″ inch PowerBook is a real desktop replacement with only two drawbacks: it is getting very hot and a lot of cable come out of the left side.
