The thing is massively ugly but it looks so good in terms of what it does.
Why do I get the feeling they could tag this "A third of a laptop, for the price of 2!"
That said, I'm still salivating a bit. Is it on sale already or what?
I don't get companies like this - clearly they're not interested in the home user dollar otherwise they wouldn't be trying to flog something with half the capability of a netbook for the price of an entire netbook.
What's their game?
If you need a keyboard you can just plug a USB one in. Otherwise you've a machine that's great for browsing the web or for reading e-books.
You could take this on holiday and get a lot of uses out of it. It'll probably be bought by companies too and as such it should have a good buy up since if you have a company like ours they'll already have a load of USB keyboards for existing laptop users but maybe not want to go to a very expensive tablet PC for those parts of the workforce (management) who'd actually find a machine like this where you handwrite your stuff in more useful and versatile.
