When will manufacturers stop making laptops with grease absorbing palmrests?

It's small details like this why you choose the Macbook Air. Apple focuses on these small details.

Still no 3G data card option. Harumph.

Would it be churlish to point out that, whilst they may have a "13.3in screen crammed into a 12in-equivalent body" they have only managed to 'cram in' the screen resolution commonly found on an 11.6" screen. Two steps forward, and two steps back again.

After seeing the TV commercials I thought I'd check it out, looked at the specs on the Dell website, thought 'so far so good'. Then saw screen res of 1,366 x 768 and thought 'Next!'.

Think I'll wait for the Ivy Bridge refreshes of the Macbook Air and the Samsung Series 9.

It's not too bad on this model actually, and the soft-touch finish is worth a few minor visual blemishes for its enhanced comfort when typing.
Either way this is far preferable to glossy plastic/metal.

Indeed. We think the option should be there on the majority of high-end laptops, rather than the minority. Hopefully with increasing tablet convergence this will become the standard.

Not churlish at all but perhaps a little unfair, as it's also the screen resolution commonly found on most 13in, 14in and 15in laptops.

So maybe two steps forward and a little shuffle back? :)

Indeed, though panel type is at least as important.
Have you heard of the new 1080p IPS Zenbooks?:

I think you mean MINI Displayport not microDisplayPort, in the age where there is mini and micro USB, mini and micro HDMI, etc, etc, etc, you need to get your facts straight "Trusted" (laughable) reviews.
