Lol, i dunno what's with the need for a removable battery. I mean, if it's faulty then they'll replace with you a new set. Being able to remove the battery or not on my mac is secondary. I think being able to run on battery and need not be plugged for 5 hrs beats a removable battery anytime. seriously at the size of the battery, I don't know how many people is going to lug around a spare battery. Now that they refreshed their lineup, with 10hrs reported battery life, so actual use shd be 7-8 hrs. Oh man thats awesome.
I agree OSX is nothing THAT great. but the fact that I will never get PC viruses gives me a peace of mind don't need to spend on anti-virus softwares and run scans. Oh did i mention my mac boots up in less than 15 secs? shuts down in about 5 secs? I wanna see that happen on Win 7. Really I do.
I have a Win7 PC and a Macbook Pro. Back to topic, actually it is a good thing for the industry to move from Flash to HTML5. Apple is taking a huge gamble to lead the industry towards HTML5. Let's face it, Flash uses **** loads of power. I watch youtube or flash videos on my mac my battery drains like hell and gets damn hot. For those who don't know OSX has their own version of Adobe Flash. It's still flash. HTML5 is leaner and sort of meaner.
Looking at it objectively, Yes Flash dominates the market at the moment. Looking at Apple's marketing prowess and sadly the ginormous Apple Fanatics who follow them kinda blindly. I think Apple has what it takes to usher in HTML5 just like how they changed the way people log on to the internet and the way content is delivered. You cannot deny that the iPhone has changed the way people communicate. It's impact is pardon the cliche, a revolution on the mobile phone.
The first weapon Apple has thrown in to the HTML5 vs Flash battle is obviously the iPad. That rather low-specced oversized iPod Touch with no USB ports and other seemingly basic I/O ports is OMGWTFBBQ ridiculously stupid. (And check out the 3.5mm headphone jack at the top... WTH!?! why there!?) IMO, the iPad is quite a waste of money. BUT look at the possibility with it.
The thing that edges other tablets out is the way Apple delivers content to the devices. Its too simple, and people love it. Okay back to the HTML5 vs Flash developers are forced to adopt that standard and they WILL because of the sheer number of iPad users. At the end of the day, I see Apple winning the battle.
