    That's exactly what it is. There's a notch in the glass on either side of the screen for the speakers.

    Apple does a good job at optimization but that doesn't mean windows isn't just as good or better in some cases. Here is a comparison of battery efficiency for the Sony Vaio 13 vs the Macbooks. It's actually better in this work scenario.

    The Macs pull ahead in medium to heavy workloads which should be noted. My point is that the efficiency is more on the hardware and driver side than a "windows" vs "OSX" type thing as everyone likes to make it out to be.

    Arrived at Best Buy. Surface display is all disheveled, the S3 is nowhere to be found. The MS guy was on "break or something like that" and should be back sometime. Classic Best buy. Needless to say, I didn't wait around. No in store fondling for me until Monday.:rolleyes:

    Why did Microsoft bother to create the "store within a store" concept if THEY AREN'T GOINNG TO USE IT! The sales staff at Best Buy is incompetent to begin with, and just lost when it comes to anything cutting edge...and I BLAME MICROSOSFT...the black shirts who run the Apple kiosk know their products inside out, but not in the Microsoft section...
