    Apple’s magsafe is ’bout the most obvious bit of “Why didn’t they ALL do this?” I’ve encountered in a long time.

    My netbook lost the PgDn key in a similar incident.

    @Gyffes as much as I resent Apple,I must admit that I wish all laptops had that.

    @Why Apple: there are plenty of other devices that use magnetically attached power connections without infringing (e.g. deep fryers).
