Windows Steven Sinofsky, who oversees Windows 7 development, has really committed to keeping us in the loop on the new Engineering Windows 7 blog. In today's post, "Measuring the Scale of a Release," he discusses whether or not Windows 7 will be a "major" or "minor" release. It's a pretty good piece that really makes some good points. Read on for our perspective.

1100$ is going to buy you a toy.

MBPs aren't that bad price wise when you compare them against similar higher end low-weight/low-noise laptops, like vaios or lenovos. The problem is you have far more choice in the pc world, so unless you buy right after an apple refresh, chances are you can get better components for a few hundred dollars less at any given time.

My problem is I dont care about uber portable, I buy machines that I can move around the house, or take to the coffee shop (basically just not be tied to a desk), and I dont care so much about weight when I can buy something at least twice as good for the same price, albeit closer to 8 lbs. I love osx, and I have an iMac, but until apple offers at least moderately powered mobile machines, my primary computer is always going to be a pc.
