Microsoft vs. Apple

Two random MSFT vs APPL moments this weekend:

1. The rumor mill suggests that one of the January MacWorld announcements will be an ultraportable. FINALLY – holy crap it’s only been like forever, guys. Other rumors however are suggesting a tablet laptop instead. I hope they don’t waste a lot of time on the tablet thing. A sub 3 lb. Mac laptop might just push me over the edge away from Lenovo/Microsoft.

2.  On the other side of the coin, I’ve been planning to pick up an 80GB iPod Classic. However, the new 80GB Zune is looking quite interesting in its stead. While it is 2 mm thicker and 4 mm taller than the iPod, it’s also about 10% lighter than the iPod. Interesting times.
