    The only catches are it is the size of of your run of the mill netbook and is at best as slow as a half decade old Mac.

    Excuse me, what's the point of this newly opened thread? YOU just posted the last reply in this existing thread about this same topic at 7:21pm today. Why open a new one at 7:30pm? The discussion in that thread is already well established. I find this very weird…

    Lock it if you don't like it. You're a mod after all. :)

    no. you'll get as much performance from a P19T hackintosh wind.

    My benchmarks show that the current MSI Wind is just about as fast as PowerBook G4 1.67 or a PowerMac G5 1.6.

    This thread will be merged with the old one, I think.

    soloworx I dont want to argue with you. If you feel it needs to be locked then lock it. What can I do anyways, right?

    boo: which model wind are you using? also the $600 price tag takes into the consideration the much vaunted Apple "tax"
