No wireless.  Less space than a nomad.  Lame.

Thing was Sculley WAS right, the Mac was a dog and no amount of lipstick was gonna fix that.  And I've always felt that Job's supposed "genius" was wildly overblown, he has failed at nearly everything he tried to do.  The Mac Lisa?  The Next machine? yes the Apple and the Apple II weren;t bad but those were really Woz's idea not his.  He stole GUi from Xerox Parc.  So pretty much the only thing he did well was re-package his computers and later Mp3 player in a way that made people go "oooh Pretty!"  and pay 2x as much for them on that basis
