    I used to thinkthe same but their new models are really nice...

    We bought 15 of these - Acer Aspire Timeline 3810TZ review | Laptops | Reviews | PC Pro - at the end of last year for the kids to use. Nice and slim, 9 hour battery life, lovely metal finish. The rest of the range are the same but more powerful, I think the timeline X series are their newest.

    edit: we got the 4GB version

    Clearly whichever Apple reseller you went to for these, (please don't tell me you just bought them straight off the Apple web site) didn't do his job properly and sold you the wrong product.

    OR

    All well and good buying some great new Apple kit....anyone bother with some training as well????

    Don't blame the machines. Blame the people who bought them. If they were bought without properly understanding that they are ultraportable, and therefore not general purpose machines, then the purchaser is at fault.

    Also, why are they sat in a safe? Why did they not simply get sold? They hold their value just fine.

    Your argument could be changed into 'we bought a couple of mini coopers, but they couldn't fit the grand pianoes we needed to move around in the boot. They're useless! Don't buy minis!'...
