Are aesthetics that important?

First off, i stole this from Vince as it is perfectly represents my attitude towards iPad.

Printing from iPad.

Anyways. I have decided that I need a portable computer. I have my desktop, which I use for heavy-duty stuff like gaming or video making, but it sits in the office and I don't like to spend much time there. I watch TV in the evenings, and I would like to have something sitting on my lap (BE QUIET!) that I can casually look at, or read emails, or some such.

Problem is, I would like the laptop/netbook to look and feel good. I don't want heavy15 inches and I don't want to squint and jam my fingers at a tiny keyboard. I don't care about things like that with my desktop. I've build them year-in and year out, and usually end up with a black box crammed full of computer goodness.

Why is it that important that my portable computing device looks good?

You're welcome.

I don't know why your portable computing device should look good, but tiny screens and tiny keyboards on a laptop, at least to me, look and feel even tinier that tiny screens and tiny keyboards on a desktop.
