Best Buy PCs

I love my Mac Powerbook, but if I were to buy a Windows laptop I'd seriously consider the vpr Matrix 200A5 from Best Buy. Yeah, that's right, Best Buy! Who knew. Two Firewire ports? Sweet sweet.

Anytime a device has a rechargeable battery that can't be replaced, you worry about diminishing battery life. Looks like the iPod, great as it is, may suffer from the same problem. Bummer.
