computer envy

I am an unabashed Mac fan. Let there be no doubt—I love me some Apple computers.

BUT, in the last two days, I've been called into two meetings with sales reps from different companies who both had one of those nifty swiveling-monitor tablet notebook PCs. And let me tell you, those things are cool. Really, really cool.

Mind you, I didn't USE them and I didn't even get to see how the sales reps were using them, aside from watching them tap-tap-tap on the screen with the nifty pen-thing. But the form factor is undeniably cool.

Come on, Steve Jobs, give us some tablet love. What could be cooler than a 12-inch aluminum PowerBook with a swiveling, tablet monitor? Drool.
