Powerbook Opinions

I had a look at the new 12" Apple Powerbook yesterday through in Bath as I was thinking about getting one and switching away from Windows, but it just didn't quite measure up to what I was looking for. No infra-red or usb 2.0, the dvd drive is region locked, only 256k of L2 cache and the volume output isn't very loud. On the other hand, you can spec it up with a dvd-writer and it is built well; hopefully Apple will do something about these shortcomings and upgrade them soon.
