tjgkg,

The thing with the Apple Watch, or any other smartwatch for that matter, is to have a mini-computer device attached to your wrist. It's not just a timepiece.

tgjkg,

How can you possibly know the Apple watch is not accurate? Do you have one already? :/

SusanN, 

I, too, am very excited about the new MacBook. I am due for upgrading my MacBookPro, and I was thinking of getting a MacBookAir. Now I think I will get the new MacBook. :D Mobility and a super lightweight are super important for me.

As for all the talk about the extra ports, I can't care less about them. They will be dissapearing from the others as well, maybe later, but they will disappear at the end.

Not all the products are for everyone, which doesn't mean the products are bad, or not worth the money. To me, the new MacBook sounds great.

Re: Not all it's cracked up to be
For a "post PC" world, it's amazing how common this sentiment is, about people being more excited about a light and powerful laptop. I know I would be very fired up to replace my workhorse laptop with something like this.

@tjgkg: So, can we assume then that you won't be placing a pre-order on April 10?

I'm far more excited about the new MacBook features. That keypad technology is impressive and the screen resolution looks drool-worthy. I'd much rather spend my hard-earned money on a snazzy, lightweight notebook than a smartwatch. i'm quite happy with my Shinola analog wristwatch made in Detroit by watchmakers trained by Swiss experts and using Swiss parts.
