I simultaneously want a mobile computer that is as small and thin as possible but also one that has standard replaceable components and good ports. These things don't go together.

@kelbot
you can go the apple route of let's just have one port because *pretty* or you can grab a thinkpad
or maybe something in between
actually that's the right option
(I've had good experiences with the XPS series of Dell laptops)

@engal
Yeah, I'm of 2 minds on this. Do I compromise and get something in the middle? Pick the ultra portable or the workhorse? Or both?
