"Laptop design has always been about compromise.
Though they've come a long way in the past few years,laptopshave never been able to offer the features available in desktop computers, and certainly not at comparable prices. In order to squeeze an entire computer into a portable shell (and have it be power-efficient enough to run on a battery for hours at a timef), computer-makers have to throw features overboard. And the smaller and lighter the laptop, the more compromise there needs to be."
