Here's my list of reasons why I'm resisting the urge to get the 12":

* No PCMCIA slot. I never thought this would be an issue, until I got a digital camera and discovered the joys of CF cards. I have a FireWire CF card reader, but it's one more thing to carry around. The CF PCMCIA adapter just sits in my otherwise unused PCMCIA slot.

* No DVI. I have a 17" Apple LCD, and I have no desire to spend three or four hundred dollars on a VGA to DVI adapter.
