Data is expensive
I could happily get away with a PAYG SIM for calls and texts - a £10 topup would last me months. Unfortunately my data usage averages a few hundred megabytes a month so it's not economical, particularly if I exceed quotas.

With uncorrected vision, I can see clearly up to 6 inches from my face.
Contrary to what adverts say, wearing contact lenses day in day out becomes incredibly uncomfortable after a while. Glasses are a pain in the rear end too. While you certainly can get all types designed for various activities, nothing beats a pair of eyes that work properly in the first place.
If surgery existed that could provide new limbs to those that have lost them, or were never born with them - would that also be mutilation?
Gloss over the N85, N79 and W980i - with the FM transmitters built in, and no need to use wired headphones as an antenna. The only real innovation this year.
And who gives a sod if a phone has a standard 3.5mm jack? On a regular player, great idea, but without a microphone you're going to have a hard time making calls. Score 1 for stereo bluetooth headsets and the daft Sony Ericsson connector that dongles into a 3.5mm jack after the mic.
Saw one of these on a Sony Vaio recently purchased here.
It actually switches out the graphics chip being used when the machine boots up between an Intel (stamina) and Nvidia (performance). Little more than just changing power profiles.
Sure, it could hotplug correctly instead - but on current consumer grade hardware/software? That'll add more than a bit to the price.
But I want a 13" one, and I'd like it with an ExpressCard slot, a docking station, and a solid state drive.
Even the 15" Pro is too big. I need compact, digital audio in and out, firewire, bluetooth, wifi, ethernet, DVI, and from what I've found the MacBooks are the only laptop with all of the above.
Not in a hurry though, fortunately.
