My points hold down to a weight of 5lb and a 12" laptop, frankly, since mine weighs 2lb. A laptop the size of a rectangular 8.9" LCD screen that weighs 2lb is way, way, way easier to do a lot of things with than a 14.1" desktop replacement machine, or even a standard "light" 12" one. My post was a response to someone wondering why anyone would want an ultraportable machine and not a chunky desktop replacement notebook.
And I don't know where you get the stuff about Macs. My laptop is x86 (a P2/400, no less...)
