true, but i kinda dislike those G designations as the are very 

i keep seeing the local press refering to hsdpa as super-3G, but thats not 
given. as such, its much better to read the actual product specs as they at 
least list the proper designations.

and just to deliver a small kick towards apple, thats why i hate hearing about 
their "superdrive". hell, even their refreshing of products throw in a wrench 
at times. sure someone is using a macbook pro, but what "generation" macbook 

but then im a geek. to most the under-the-hood stuff will fly by them at mach 
16. they just want their gizmo to do what they ask of it without fail or 

i guess its the same thing with cars. some love to talk about CCM's, torque 
and all that, while others just want it to drive them flawlessly from a to b, 
and look good while doing so.

i just wish that computer stats where as fashionable as car stats...
