No more PowerBook + external hard drive to carry around.
Plus I travel a lot. It would be sweet to watch some movies on the plane or the train, again, without having to lug around the PowerBook, extra batteries, and like 14 DVD's... and the small form factor means I could use it in places where lugging a DVD player might be really inconvenient. (Bus, waiting room, etc.)
That's the same reason I want it. Now I can carry around my work. I also love the fact that for stills you can upload direct from your camera. I aserisouly carry around my digital all the time, and keep my Canon camcorder in the car. It's crazy. I totally get what your saying though.
