Best Buy tries to clone PowerBook with help from Porsche

The cumbersomely-named “VPR Matrix 200A5” is Best Buy’s answer to the PowerBook. It’s the first Windows notebook with a wide-aspect, 15.2-inch LCD similar to Apple’s PowerBook G4 Titanium and sports a 1,280×854 native resolution. Also included are a 2GHz Pentium 4-M, 512MB of DDR SDRAM, a 40GB hard drive, a combo CD-RW/DVD drive, and integrated 802.11b. I goes for $2,399, but it’s missing one important feature; Mac OS X.
