I have to say I'm partial to the charcoal.
Different strokes for different folks, but that 9" screen is mighty nice. Too bad the native resolution is the same regardless of which screen you choose.
New function keys, a right shift key (!!!), and better tactile response; still water resistant.
Mesh networking requires Linux
No longer hidden in the back underneath the handle
My MacBook doesn't even have one of these.
Easily-removed; a 4-cell battery from the previous generation is still available.
Much better than the previous gimmicky oval
I like to believe that Intel included this at my request; I think everyone else just realized that a single left shift key is a pain in the behind.
These guys are really little; my MacBook is fairly diminutive.
The outside form factor of both the 7" and 9" models are the same. This would fit quite nicely into a messenger bag, wouldn't it?
Who needs MIDs? Give me a Classmate.
Just pop the velcro
Just don't lose the screws since they aren't attached to the back plate (Hey, Intel - you gave me back my shift key; can we get the screws attached for easier maintenance?)
